The ASCOD Family of Vehicles is a versatile and powerful land platform for current and future operation theatres which is currently in service with various NATO countries. The modular design architecture offers adaptability and scalability and is remarkably cost-efficient for maintenance.
The modular design means the platform can be tailored to a customer’s specific needs and requirements. With different payload capacities and growth potential and its alternative power pack and running gear, ASCOD offers a wide range of configurations which cover all the major roles of an Armored Fighting Vehicle; Infantry Fighting Vehicle, Armored Personnel Carrier, Command Post, Forward Observer, Repair, Recovery, Engineering, Artillery 155/52 (DONAR), Direct Fire / Light Tank or Bridge launcher and can integrate all types of turrets and weapon systems.
