The Transportpanzer Fuchs ("fox") is a West German armoured personnel carrier developed by Daimler-Benz and built by Thyssen-Henschel in 1979.

It is used for tasks including troop transport, engineer transport, bomb disposal, NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) reconnaissance and electronic warfare. It is used by the Alliance of Nations

The engine is a Mercedes-Benz Model OM 402A V-8 liquid-cooled 320 HP diesel. Its top speed is 105 km/h and the range is 800 km. It is 7.33 m long, 2.98 m wide and 2.37 m high. It weighs 18.3 tons with the capability to carry 6 tons in equipment. The 6x6 APC has high performance over many terrains, with low noise. Its rear-mounted propellers with 360° turning range enabled it to negotiate water obstacles at 10 km/h up to a certain weight limit which an upgraded and loaded Fuchs can easily exceed. It is used by the Alliance of Nations
