The Lynx is a armoured fighting vehicle developed by Rheinmetall Landsysteme (part of Rheinmetall’s Vehicle Systems division). The Lynx, configured as an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), was unveiled publicly at the Eurosatory defence exhibition on June 14th, 2016.

According to Rheinmetall, the Lynx family of tracked armoured vehicles is at the forefront of a new trend in IFV design toward armoured vehicles with lower unit and through-life costs and reduced complexity. One of the key principles of the Lynx concept is the integration of proven sub-systems with a high technology readiness level to reduce development time, cost and technical risk.

It is being offered to Australia for its Land 300 Phase 3 program and to the Czech Republic as a replacement for the BVP-2 IFV.
