Jackal 2s and a Coyote vehicle of A Squadron The Light Dragoons
Pictured on a desert track are three Jackal 2s and a Coyote vehicle of A Squadron The Light Dragoons during training Exercise Jebel Sahara with elements of The Queens Own Yeomanry and the Moroccan Army.
The Light Dragoons are a Light Cavalry Regiment in the Adaptive Force. As the name suggests, Light Dragoons were originally Light Cavalry mounted on fast horses, able to move quickly across the battlefield.
The light nature of the Regiment means they are able to deploy anywhere in the world at very short notice.
Jackal 2 is a high mobility weapons platform, with a unique air-bag suspension system allowing rapid movement across varying terrain.
It is designed to protect personnel against roadside explosions and mine attacks (the chassis is heavier than its predecessor to give additional protection).
Jackal 2 is armed with a General Purpose Machine Gun for crew protection and can carry either a Heavy Machine Gun or a Grenade Machine Gun as the main weapons system in the fire support role.
The Coyote tactical support vehicle, (TSV) light, is based on a 6x6 derivative of the Jackal 2 and supports the go-anywhere, high-mobility Jackals across the harsh Afghanistan terrain.
The extra two wheels gives a heavier vehicle, which can act in support of the Jackal 2 to transport supplies and equipment over similar terrain.
The Coyote, which has similar protection systems, armament and propulsion to the Jackal 2, can carry also an extra crew member compared to the original Jackal vehicle
