Heavy Protected Recovery Vehicle
The schweres Geschütztes Berge- und Abschleppfahrzeug (sGeBAF) Bison heavy protected recovery vehicle is used by the Bundeswehr to recover and tow heavy wheeled vehicles that have broken down or had an accident, including equipment such as the LKW 15 t mil gl MULTI A4 FSA truck, variants of the Transportpanzer 1 Fuchs wheeled armoured personnel carrier and variants of the gepanzertes Transportkraftfahrzeug (GTK) Boxer multirole armoured wheeled vehicle. The Bison is based on the chassis of the Mercedes-Benz Actros 4151 AK 8x8 truck fitted with a protected cab built by the South African company LMT Holdings SOC. The Bergeaufbau EH/W 200 Bison recovery body that houses recovery equipment is manufactured by the Austrian company EMPL Fahrzeugwerk Gesellschaft.
