The Brazilian EE-9 Armoured Car was developed in the early 1970’s by former Brazilian AFV manufacturer ENGESA. Compared to Western AFV’s at the time, it was unsophisticated and carried a low price tag, which proved attractive to less affluent nations who cued up to buy it, making it a very successful export.
Brazilian Army vehicles are fitted with a 37mm main gun, whilst exported vehicles had a 90mm. All had a coaxial mounted 7.62mm and a 12.7mm MG fitted on the cupola for Anti-Aircraft roll.
Normal steel (2 layers) construction and 2x banks of 3 grenade launchers. It had no NBC protection for the 3 man crew.
212hp Detroit Diesel engine giving a top road speed of 100km/h and operational range of 880km.
