BOXER Armoured Personnel Carrier
The modular design enables a variety of BOXER mission-specific vehicle models. The uniform drive module can be supplemented by a number of user-specific mission modules for different tasks. The ability to quickly change the mission module, even between different versions, allows new approaches in the areas of operational deployment and logistical support. This reduces the development and production costs and increases the tactical flexibility of the vehicle.

FENNEK Reconnaissance Vehicle
Its mission: seeing without being seen. Excellently camouflaged due to its low overall height, the extremely low infrared and radar signatures as well as an engine with low noise emission and equipped with state of the art reconnaissance equipment, the FENNEK readily satisfies the requirements for reconnaissance missions behind enemy lines. In modern mission scenarios of the 21st century its tasks include the observation of enemy troop movements and, in particular, the monitoring of embattled towns, cities or stretches of land, in order to observe, identify and check any suspicious activity immediately after it occurs.

Powertrain Components and Wheel Suspension Systems
DDVS is particularly skilled in manufacturing components for the powertrain and wheel suspension systems of military vehicles. DDVS is sole supplier of complete chassis and damping systems for Fennek vehicles. Furthermore, DDVS also possesses the necessary means and knowledge to be able to inspect and evaluate the technical state of these powertrain components and wheel suspension systems. The technical state of gearboxes is evaluated with the help of advanced methods and tools, without having to disassemble the gearbox. This saves many hours of assembly and disassembly, which means that the customer does not have to bear unnecessary costs.
