The Buffel was the primary mine-protected APC of the South African Army during the Angolan conflict. It was certainly not the most comfortable vehicle, but it offered the necessary protection. Buffels were also used as armoured fighting vehicles and were proven in this roll. The Buffel was introduced in 1978 after it was found that the SAA needed a basic mine protected vehicle. More than 1400 were delivered before production stopped. A few found their way to other armies as well. The Buffel weighed 6.14 tons full loaded, had 4x4 drive through a 6 cylinder water cooled diesel, could travel 96 km/h on the open road or 30 km/h off road, had a range of 1000 km and a crew of 1+10. Many were armed with 7.62 machine guns.
