The Spähpanzer Luchs (German: Lynx) is a West German 8x8 amphibious reconnaissance armoured fighting vehicle in service since 1975 by the German Army, who used a total of 408 in their battalions. It was developed by Daimler-Benz between 1968 and 1975, replacing the M41 and the Schützenpanzer SPz 11-2 Kurz. A fast unit, the SpPz Luchs is a good recon vehicle choice.

Produced from 1976, it has been designed to replace the Bundeswehr's aging SPz 11-2 Kurz and share many characteristics with the French ERC 90 Sagaie in terms of mobility and recon/identification abilities. Yet, with an armor rated 1 / 1 / 0 / 0, it is still lightly armored but better protected on its flanks.[1]


Available to NATO forces, the Luchs makes its SpPz Luchs A1 variant available. The SpPz Luchs A1's main features are:

  • High speed. While slightly inferior to the ERC-90 Sagaie it is the second fastest vehicle of it's category.
  • Good Operational range with low fuel consumption.
  • Side armour.
  • Good optics.
