General Dynamic Land Systems - Force Protection is exhibiting the Ocelot, which is in‐service with the British Army in Afghanistan. Ocelot's unique modular design makes it a game changer in the protected 4x4 vehicle class. Shown for the first time is the surveillance variant with mast mounted sensor suite and RWS. This variant provides a highly survivable border security capability and is one variant in a family of mission modules that includes a C2, a load carrying, a troop patrol and a long range special ops carried on a common base platform. This unique 'rapid swap out' design provides commanders with genuine mission options as well as providing significant advantages in reduced whole life costs resulting from a genuine family of vehicles.
