Denel to deliver more Casspir vehicles
South Africa’s Denel is set to deliver another batch of 21 Casspir mine-protected vehicles to an undisclosed client in the African region, the company announced on 5 July.
The consignment is part of an order for 45 vehicles that are based on Denel’s new-generation Casspir NG2000 series. The first batch of 24 vehicles was delivered in December 2016.
The customer has ordered eight of the 15 variants available of the Casspir platform, including troop carriers, ambulances, command and control, cargo, recovery, fire support, as well as water and fuel variants.
Denel said the vehicles will equip a newly established peace support contingent for participation in African Union peace support missions.
