BAE Systems exhibits its BvS10 Beowulf all-terrain vehicle at DSA 2016
A new BAE Systems all-terrain vehicle will reach more places and carry more cargo than any other vehicle of its kind. The vehicle, called "Beowulf," is based on the company's revered BvS10 multi-role armored vehicle.

Beowulf is an unarmoured vehicle which has a payload capacity of 8 tones and built-in modularity that allows interchangeable special role rear cabins to carry a combination of personnel and cargo. The vehicle can swim, negotiate swamps and traverse snow and soft sand. Beowulf features improved crew comfort, visibility, and is easy to maintain.

"We have more than 40 years of experience in the area of all-terrain vehicles. The release of the all new. unprotected, commercially based Beowulf is exciting for us," said Darren Restarick, regional director at BAE Systems Hagglunds. "We are delivering to the market an exceptionally capable vehicle that will reach places other systems cannot, carry a high payload, establish temporary infrastructure and provide life support capabilities around the clock, in all weather conditions."

BAE Systems sees Beowulf as a successor to its Bv206. More than 12,000 of the glass-fiber bodied vehicles were built and a majority are still in service with the militaries and emergency services of more than 40 countries.

Beowulf's flexibility makes it suitable for all markets from defense to high availability disaster recovery (HADR) and commercial applications such as oil & gas and mining, especially in areas difficult to access.
