The British Aerospace Australia (BAeA) Foxhound is BAeA's submission to the Australian Army's Project Bushranger phase 2/3 seach for an Infantry Mobility Vehicle or IMV (read a wheeled armoured personnel carrier.)
Foxhound is based on the Short Brothers S600 Internal Security Vehicle. Short Brothers, of Belfast, Northern Ireland, have a long history of making armoured vehicles. Like its Bushranger rival, the ASVS Taipan, Foxhound uses the Unimog U2150L four wheel drive truck's running gear. As such it has portal axles with hub reduction gearing for extra ground clearance. Suspension is by coil springs.
A spare wheel is carried on each side of the rear body.
Foxhound can fill a number of roles including troop vehicle, command vehicle, ambulance and recovery vehicle.
