The Springer is an all-terrain vehicle developed for the UK Army by UK-based Enhanced Protection Systems (EPS) and supports British troops in Afghanistan. The vehicles can be deployed in landing zones to support airborne and light infantry units and used to move combat supplies from helicopter landing sites to forward operating bases. Designed as a light role load carriage platform, Springer is based on the US-made Tomcar all-terrain vehicle (ATV) platform and can accommodate two crew members. Springer vehicles have rear cargo beds to carry loads of up to one ton which is high in comparison with similar ATVs. The payload capacity has been optimised through using light armour to achieve weight reductions and all vehicles are refitted to support missions carried out by UK personnel in Afghanistan ensuring an uninterrupted supply of equipment to frontline troops. It is fitted with weapons holders to carry light support weapon with the SA80 A2 standard assault rifles available for two crew members and can be fitted with a SUSAT sight and a common weapon sight (CWS). Other weapons include a C7 rifle or a Minimi, a fully automatic light machine gun. The vehicle can also be fitted with a general purpose machine gun (GPMG) mount. Fitted with a 1,400cc naturally aspirated Lombardini diesel engine with the option of turbocharger and petrol variants, the continuously variable transmission (CVT) in combination with a drive chain efficiently utilises engine power. The Springer is a two-wheel drive vehicle capable of being driven off-road, three modes are provided on the drive train. Spring arm suspension gives the vehicles a high ground clearance of 378mm and consists of an adjustable dual coil over springs, gas hydraulic shocks and an air compressor system with load compensators. They have a maximum speed of 40mph with low centres of gravity and the ability to negotiate tight corners and uneven and muddy terrain. Tests have proven the capabilities of the vehicle with 75 Springers commissioned by the UK Ministry of Defence at a cost of $10,300,000. Ideal for use on a farm/estate or for having a little fun, registered for road use, this looks remarkable value given the approximate £86,000 cost of each individual unit.
