The Ratel 20 was the first in a range of Ratels developed for the South African Army. It was developed as an ICV for mechanized infantry during the Angolan bush war. They weigh 18.5 tons loaded, have a 6x6 drive, are powered by a 230kw 12 L turbo charged 6 cylinder water cooled diesel, can travel 105 km/h on the open road, have a range of 1000 km and are armed with a 20mm cannon and 7.62 machine gun. In bush war operations, the Ratel 20 proved to be an excellent ICV with a good balance of fire power, protection, speed, mobility and relative comfort for the 13 crew members. The Ratel 20 is still in service with the South African National Defense Force. All remaining Ratels have been upgraded and remain in service until a replacement ICV has been found.
