Iguana - RG-34 Armored Vehicle

The 4x4 Iguana uses a multi-link hydro-pneumatic suspension mounted on rigid structure contributing for efficient road performance, small turning circle and comfortable ride in rough roads. For amphibious mobility water propellers are used. Off road mobility and obstacle negotiation are provided by large diameter wheel and long suspension travel. The vehicle is powered by a Daimler-Chrysler turbo-diesel Intercooled engine, and a 5 speed automatic gearbox. Iguana can travel more than 800 km on a single tank of fuel.

The low silhouette cabin is built as a welded monocoque manufactured from high quality ballistic steel, providing basic protection against small arms. Add-on armor upgrades are used to improve protection against larger caliber threats.
