AnacondA

The Anaconda is a light military vehicle, developed and launched in 2018. The base of the Anaconda is the 7 ton GVW IVECO Daily.  A robust, light commercial cargo-chassis produced since 1978. The IVECO Daily chassis is versatile and strong because of the use of a ladder chassis which is typical of heavier commercial vehicles.

The IVECO Daily is celebrating 40 years of pushing the boundaries of innovation, versatility and efficiency in light commercial vehicles. Since it was first launched in 1978, it has introduced ground-breaking innovations that have changed the industry: from the adoption of a truck-derived chassis with rear traction and independent front suspension, to the introduction of Common Rail technology in 1999 – a world first – or the advanced Electronic Stability Program (ESP) for regulating vehicle handling during steering and braking. In 40 years over 3 million IVECO Daily’s were sold. Today it is marketed in 110 countries around the world.

Dutch Military Vehicles uses this base for different vehicles, including the AnacondA.

History of the AnacondA
The first vehicles where developed and build in 2018 and have since then been in service with the Dutch Ministry of Defence. Starting with 46 AnacondA (Carib Version) for the Dutch Caribbean Islands Curaçao, Aruba and St. Maarten.

After this initial delivery 14 more AnacondA’s where ordered. This time for the Anti-Armour-Troop of the Royal Dutch Marines, resulting in the development and delivery of the AnacondA AAT.

The AnacondA is developed by Dutch Military Vehicles and our partners. The drivetrain was adapted from a rear-wheel drive vehicle to a permanent 4×4 drivetrain together with Achleitner Fahrzeugbau in Austria.

During this development IVECO Defence Vehicles S.A. approached Dutch Vehicles to start a partnership in developing a AnacondA based on the MUV 4×4 chassis built by Iveco Defence Vehicles. Resulting from this partnership the AnacondA MUV was born.

“The vehicle name AnacondA originates from the South-American snake AnacondA and was chosen because of the fact that the vehicle was first developed for the Dutch Royal Marine Corps deployed to the Dutch Caribbean. Similar to the AnacondA, the marines are famous for their excellent operational capabilities on both land and water”

After the successful implementation of the AnacondA Carib, the Dutch MOD ordered 14 additional vehicles for the Royal Dutch Marines. These vehicles were ordered to replace the Land Rover serving with the Anti Armour Troop of the Royal Dutch Marines.

The AnacondA AAT is a fully closed version of the AnacondA series. With dismountable front- and side windows, dismountable doors and an open layout of the rest of the vehicle, the AnacondA AAT is an off-road fighting-vehicle that can handle the most challenging terrain.

AnacondA carib

Combining a fighting vehicle with a vehicle that can be used as a relief vehicle after natural disasters. This was one of the challenges the project team of Dutch Military Vehicles and the Dutch Ministry of Defence took on while developing the AnacondA Carib.
This resulted in the AnacondA Carib Version.

After delivering 60 AnacondA’s to the Dutch Ministry of Defence, IVECO Defence Vehicles S.A. and Dutch Military Vehicles decided that the versatility of the AnacondA and the IVECO MUV 4×4 chassis would result in a product that has potential in the market for multiuse vehicles with a maximum GVW of 7.2 tons.

It was then decided to develop a version that could be used as a troop-transporter for a specific customer.

Currently new versions of the AnacondA MUV are being developed to further broaden the range of the AnacondA.
