Designed by the Supercat Company, based at Honiton in Devon, it is built around a High Mobility Truck (HMT) 4x4 chassis by Lockeed Martin, licence built here for the Jackal. Some production is by Supacat themselves, but with more undertaken by DML, based in Plymouth, who help with the larger production runs. Orders for around 200 have already been put in place. Armament can be things like a 12.7mm heavy machine gun (a .50 cal), a GPMG or a 40mm grenade launcher.
Crew of 2 or 3, the latest, enlarged versions will see that climb to 4, and a 6-wheel version (included in one of the photos here) is being built.
