Description: The RG Outrider is a 4x4 V-shaped hull light armored vehicle designed to protect its crew against armor piercing (AP) rifle fire and anti-tank mine detonations. It is the successor to the RG-32M and leverages its mobility and agility but offering more internal crew space and enhanced protection. Extensive use of Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components provide cost effective through-life solution with a minimal logistics footprint. The RG Outrider was unveiled to US military leaders in February 2010 at the Nevada Automotive Test Center with the aim to be used by US special operations and coalition forces operating in Afghanistan.

The RG Outrider windows are externally mounted providing improved side-blast protection while also freeing up space inside the cabin. Other features are an improved 2-ton payload capability and a newly designed load bay which can accommodate a variety of customer required mission-specific equipment, increasing its versatility. The vehicle can also be easily fitted with mission-specific communications and weapons systems, making it a highly tactical vehicle capable of operating in most climates and environmental conditions. The RG Outrider is powered by a Steyr M16SCI Turbo charged intercooled engine developing 272-hp of power and a maximum speed of 120 kph.
