The LAPV Enok (LAPV - Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle) is an armoured military vehicle of the Bundeswehr, mostly in use with the German Army. It is a significantly further developed Wolf SSA, based on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
With the ENOK/LAPV 5.4, Mercedes-Benz is demonstrating its expertise in highly manoeuvrable, highly protected all-terrain vehicles at a new level. The three parameters of agility, protection and payload define the magic triangle that Mercedes-Benz has realised to perfection with this vehicle.
It features protection according to NATO STANAG 4569 Level 2 against rifle fire, land mines and improvised explosive devices. The Enok was especially designed to be deployed in harsh terrains and bad weather situations.
The powertrain of the ENOK/LAPV 5.4 is based on that of their existing Mercedes-Benz G 280CDI off-road vehicle with special protection, which ensures the best possible supply logistics. The vehicle is available in two variants: with five doors and fully armoured crew and cargo compartments, or with four doors and an armoured crew compartment and unprotected rear body structure.
A first batch of 247 vehicles has been ordered by the Bundeswehr, with deliveries between 2008 and 2013.
