Fact Sheet: Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle

The Peacekeeper Protected Response Vehicle (PRV), which was jointly developed by the Army and the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), is designed to support Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) servicemen carrying out security operations at key civilian and military installations.

It will replace the Army's fleet of V200s, which have been in service since 1970. The V200s will remain in operation until they are gradually phased out in 2016.

Key Features of the Peacekeeper PRV

Enhanced Weapons System
The Peacekeeper is mounted with a Remote Control Weapon System (RCWS), with options for one of three different weapon configurations:

  • 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL)
  • 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun (HMG)
  • 7.62mm Coaxial Machine Gun (CMG)

The RCWS allows the Peacekeeper's crew to engage targets accurately when the vehicle is stationary or on the move. The weapons can also be operated by the crew from within the protection of the vehicle. This enables the troops inside the vehicle to support ground forces with heavy and accurate fire. The RCWS' flexible modular components can also be easily re-configured depending on operational requirements.

Better Protection
The Peacekeeper is able to withstand small-arms fire and fragmentation. Its features include bulletproof windows and protection for its fuel tank. The Peacekeeper is also equipped with an onboard fire suppression system.

Increased Mobility
With six large off-road tires, the Peacekeeper is capable of manoeuvring across a variety of terrain. It features five types of differential locking systems for better traction, and a Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) to protect the vehicle against pressure leaks or punctures. The system also reduces vibration and shocks as the vehicle moves. Additionally, an anti-lock braking system prevents the Peacekeeper from skidding or experiencing instances of "wheel lock" when it is braking over wet or slippery surfaces.
