The Brazilian EE-T4 Ogum

The Brazilian EE-T4 Ogum

The Brazilian EE-T4 Ogum was not an Armoured Personnel Carrier but a basic lightly armoured platform capable of mounting various turrets with different weapons thanks to the engine and drive located at the front of the vehicle, much like most IFV. Weapons varied from machine guns, anti-tank guns and anti-tank missile launchers.

Engesa was a Brazilian company producing agricultural equipment and military vehicles, which were made from commercial components so as to reduce production costs which made its products, including this one, appealing to middle east countries, notably Iraq.

Developed in the mid to late 1980’s, it never received any exports as the company was made bankrupt in October 1993 due to so many order cancellations in the fallout of the 1991 Gulf War.
