The idea for the WOLF was born from the need of transporting soldiers safely during their missions in urban environments and peacekeeping missions.
It is well-known that putting light armor protection on light vehicles is expensive, so, the object was to develop an armored protection envelope from available and low cost materials. This object can be achieved by using vehicles with high payload capacity to carry materials which are relatively heavier than the expensive materials, but by doing it in a clever way.
The WOLF consists of a commercial chassis so it can be easily maintained anywhere. The WOLF is equipped with a diesel, 6 liter 325 HP engine and automatic 5 speed transmission. It can weigh 8 tons. The automatic systems require no changes when the armor is applied. The armor protects crew compartment, automatic elements and wheels. The armor envelope is built independently from the chassis, so it is possible to use the same armor envelope on another chassis (of the same model) when the chassis goes out of service.
