The Rheinmetall Condor is a 4x4 wheeled armoured personnel carrier originally designed by Thyssen-Henschel of Germany and manufactured by Henschel Wehrtechnik GmbH. It is based on the chassis of the UNIMOG and uses the same key components such as the engine, gearbox and axles. Servicability is high and the vehicle is easy to maintain since support is readily available from civilian sources.
The Condor was designed to provide overall protection against small arms, shrapnel and small mines. Combat with the Malaysian Army during the rescue operations following the Battle of Mogadishu highlighted its vulnerability against RPG-7 rocket rounds. One Malaysian soldier was killed when an RPG round penetrated the driver compartment of his vehicle.
