Description: The Fennek is a lightweight, C-130-transportable, highly mobile 4x4, armored vehicle designed to carry out reconnaissance missions on the battlefield. It features a crew of 3-man (commander, observer and driver), a sensor mast that can be elevated up to 3.3 meters above ground, NBC protection, and lightweight armor offering protection against small caliber guns. For self-defense purposes, the Fennek armored vehicle alternatively can mount a 7.62mm machine gun or a 40mm grenade launcher. The Fennek reconnaissance armored vehicle has been ordered by both the German and Dutch armies with a total requirement for up to 610 vehicles. These vehicle will be delivered between 2003 and 2007 replacing aging M113 APCs.

On June 15, 2004, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) of Germany and FNSS of Turkey signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the licensed production of Fennek vehicle in Turkey. The Turkish Army has a requirement for a modern tactical wheeled light armored vehicle that could be met by the seven variants of Fennek. In September 2005, KMW and Turkish company Aselsan signed an agreement for integration of 18 Stinger surface-to-air missile weapon systems onto 18 Fennek armored vehicles from the Dutch armed forces. In late October 2006 KMW delivered the first Fennek reconnaissance vehicle equipped with FüWES command and fire control system which links the observation sensors with the vehicle's recon system and reliably relays the data to other vehicles. The reconnaissance unit of the German Armed Forces will receive 178 Fennek with the FüWES as standard equipment.
