The Rinkhals vehicle is based on an armoured monocoque hull into which the automotive aggregates, mainly Samil 50, are integrated.
The vehicle is fitted with a door in the front on each side for the driver and co-driver, as well as two doors at the rear of the vehicle to provide access for the crew of 12 (6 on either side).
A hatch is positioned above the co-driver.
The payload area at the rear of the vehicle can be accessed from the crew compartment as well as from the outside through the rear doors.
The spare wheel is mounted on the roof towards the rear of the vehicle and a water tank is fitted inside the vehicle at the back inside the crew compartment.
This is a heavy duty highly reliable and powerful MPV larger in volume than the Casspir and almost all of the new bread of APC’s. This makes it ideal as “work-station” vehicle -ambulance or command vehicle- allowing for spaces and extensive internal configuration.
As an ambulance it provides all the armour advantages of the Casspir, but with considerably more space providing for 4 stretchers, one guard and 4-5 further seats for staff or walking wounded, along with the full medical setup of a field ambulance.
As Command Vehicle space is available for 3 double workstations and two radio positions.
The monocoque hull, including the windows, is manufactured to provide protection against 7,62 x 39 mm ball and 7,62 x 51 mm NATO ball projectiles from a distance greater than 30m.
Landmine protection is 7.5kg of TORPEX under any wheel or the hull, field repairable.
Ease and economy of maintenance – being a vehicle with international coverage and using the Samil 50 parts and service kits, maintenance in any African country is reliable.
Long in-service life – rugged and reliable design the Samil 50 trucks in various models and types are good for over 1,000,000 km of road use.
Exceeds all standards, recommendations and requirements for UN vehicle use in Africa, in terms of spare water capacity, chassis construction, ground clearance, centre of gravity and fuel and lubricant capacity. Air-Cooled engine also makes it ideally suited to hot climates.
Group Advantage – being a Samil 50 base it is ideal for use with a group vehicle pool alongside Samil 50 logistics and trucks and tankers. As such its running costs within such a groupage concept are considerably reduced across the fleet of mission vehicles.
