The Husky is a unique landmine detection vehicle that is blast survivable and field repairable. Husky vehicles are fitted with high sensitivity low metal content detectors, and alternative sensors like Ground Penetrating Radar.

Because of the longer duration of route clearance missions and the addition of different sensors and mission equipment, this has prompted a natural evolution with the design of a two (2) operator derivative of the single operator MK III Husky.

The Husky 2G is a versatile sensor platform that can detect, mark and interrogate land mines and IED threats depending on the equipment fitted to the vehicle. In the event of a detonation, the components have been engineered in a unique configuration that breaks apart in a predictable manner. This facilitates fast in-field repairs, while any damage to the system can usually be repaired in the field, increasing uptime and system availability.

The metal detector and GPR sensor can detect a 3 m wide path during route clearance. The vehicle can be fitted with a remote weapon station for protection against sniper attacks or ambushes. Another option is to add a mine roller system to the vehicle to do route proofing.

The Husky 2G can be supplied with a Redpack and a Bluepack. The Redpack is a spare wheel module trailer set that is towed by a logistical vehicle that carries the spares and tools used to repair the Husky in the field after a blast. The Bluepack is a 20 ft ISO container that is fitted with first line maintenance spares to minimize downtime of the vehicle. The Husky 2G, Redpack and Bluepack is packed, preserved and shipped in 20 ft ISO containers.

For its self-protection the Husky 2G is fitted with a remotely weapon station mounted on the roof of the crew cab which can be armed with a 7.62mm machine gun. This vehicle offers also high level of protection against mine blast (STANAG 4569 Level 4a & 4b) and firing of small arms STANAG 4569 Level 3 (7.62mm x 54 AP).
