BAE advertises:
The RG31 Mine Protected Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) is a 4x4 armoured vehicle with a combat mass of up to 17 000 kg, including 3 500kg of payload.

The all-steel, welded armour, monocoque hull protects the crew against AP rifle fire and anti-tank mine detonations. In standard APC configuration, this air-conditioned vehicle carries a crew of 10 (driver plus 9).

A large rear door and two front doors ensure speedy and easy exit and entrance. With an automatic transmission, permanent 4x4 drive and a two speed (high and low) transfer case the RG31 is easy to drive, both on and off road.

With a modular interior layout the vehicle can be configured as an APC, command vehicle, ambulance, surveillance vehicle and for many other uses.

RG31 is the mine protected vehicle of choice for peacekeepers.
