In February 2015, under a deal with General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS), Czech company Excalibur Army will manufacture the Pandur II wheeled armoured vehicle under license from GDELS-Steyr, which will provide design services and components for the vehicles.

The Pandur II is a family of 6x6 and 8x8 light armoured vehicles designed and manufcatured by the Austrian company, Steyr-Daimler-Puch, now a subdivision of General Dynamics European Land Combat Systems.

The Pandur II is currently in service with the Czech and Portuguese army in different configurations.

Like its predecessor, the Samson Mk II is a dual-axis, gyrostabilized, dual-sight (Gunner and Commander) remote-controlled weapon system capable of mounting multiple weapons. The Samson Mk II offers significant improvements, including lower silhouette, optional armor protection, and improved hit accuracy, boosted crew survivability with under-armor reloading, increased rigidity and higher gun elevation capabilities all which enable improved combat.

The Samson Mk II enables forces to effectively close the fire loop with varying degrees of firepower, from 7.62mm on the coaxial machine gun, through 23mm to 40mm main gun (western and eastern versions) and up to ATGM (AntiTank Guided Missile) engagement ranges. This gives forces mission flexibility in both urban and open country scenarios, with maximum survivability for the vehicle and crew.

The Samson Mk II RWS boosts crew survivability by eliminating deck penetration. Additional crew protection is provided by a (dedicated (Rafael patent-pending in-hull reloading system. And for the vehicle itself, Samson Mk II RWS’s low-silhouette geometry enables the host platform’s surfaces to easily accommodate protective armor ranging from STANAG Level 1 to 4.
