CRAB Combat Reconnaissance Armoured Buggy Panhard - France

The CRAB, Combat Reconnaissance Armoured Buggy, is a new concept of combat armoured vehicle, able to be used for a large range of missions: raids, recce, security, area control, and support to Special Forces operations.
The CRAB includes a couple of cutting-edge technologies: a survival cell with a high level of protection, and a remote controlled weapon system. Its very high all-terrain speed, its agility, and its manoeuvrability. Its low weight increases the yield of airlift deployments (3 CRABs in an A400M).
