BW – Enok Patrouillenfahrzeug
The Enok belongs to the newly developed vehicle generation of small protected patrol vehicles, and it is an evolution of the Mercedes-Benz G-model Wolf with special armour protection (Sonderschutzausstattung, or SSA). In 2005 the company Armoured Car System (ACS) started development of the Enok, which is available in variants with two, three or five doors with a combination of between two and four seats. In April 2008 the German Special Forces of the Kommando Spezialkräfte in Calw received a first small batch of Enoks with two doors, a protected crew compartment and unprotected rear cargo storage compartment with the Special Operations Tactical Air Control (SOTAC) mission kit. In November 2010 a total of 45 Enok Patrol Vehicles with four doors, four seats, protected crew compartment and unprotected rear storage compartment were procured as part of the project Protected Command and Multipurpose Vehicles, Class 1 (Geschützte Führungs- und Funktionsfahrzeuge, Klasse 1). From the outside, the Patrol Vehicle variant can be easily distinguished by the ring mount for the 7.62mm x 51 MG3 on the roof of the crew compartment, as well as the brush guard on the front bumper. In contrast to the Wolf SSA, the Enok features a crew compartment made of steel that offers much better all-round ballistic protection, better protection in the area of the vehicle floor and better protection against IED threats.
