The Hawkei, named for a highly venomous Australian snake, is a 4×4 light protected mobility vehicle (PMV) for armored patrol, mobile command and special operations missions. The Australian Defence Force could procure up to 1,300 Hawkeis. They typically carry four to six troops, weapons including .50-caliber machine guns, 40mm grenade launchers and even small radar units, and weigh about 7 tons.
