Electric Technology for British Army Armoured Vehicles 24 August, 2020

The British Army will test new hybrid technology on two types of its armoured vehicles, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has announced.

The trials are part of a £3 million MOD investment and the technology offers "potential military advantages", such as reducing noise and increasing stealth capability.

The Foxhound and Jackal 2 vehicles will test the electric-drive system which is being developed by defence firm NP Aerospace, along with General Dynamics UK, Supacat and Magtec.

The move is also part of the Army's plan to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.
