BAE Systems has bought the South African-designed and developed Iguana light armoured vehicle. The vehicle will be rebranded as the RG34 and marketed to military, peace-keeping and security authorities worldwide.

The RG34 has a unique multilink hydro-pneumatic suspension mounted on a very rigid structure, which gives the vehicle exceptional road performance, a small turning circle and comfortable clearance over humps.

The RG vehicle is mine resistant and can be used for multipurpose light operations such as reconnaissance, patrol, command and control, specialist support, light armour combat and security.
