The Fennek, named after the fennec (a species of small desert fox), or LGS Fennek, with LGS being short for Leichter Gepanzerter Spähwagen in German (Light Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle), is a four-wheeled armed reconnaissance vehicle produced by the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Dutch Defence Vehicle Systems.The Turkish company FNSS Defence Systems acquired the right for licence production in 2004.It was developed for both the German Army and Royal Netherlands Army to replace their current vehicles.Various weapons can be fitted, such as a 12.7 mm machine gun for the Dutch reconnaissance version, a Rafael Spike anti-tank missile on the Dutch MRAT version or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher (HK GMG) or Rheinmetall MG3 for the German vehicles. The Royal Netherlands Army also placed an order at the Turkish company Aselsan for 18 Raytheon Stinger surface-to-air missile launchers to be fitted on the Fennek. The launcher in this case is the Stinger Weapon Platform (SWP), with four Stinger missiles intended for mid-range air defence. The launcher can be controlled from on board the vehicle, or else remotely as part of a distributed air defense system. On the Dutch Fennek the primary weapon is the 12.7 mm machine gun.(info from wikipedia)
This my attempt to try and make the Fennek LGS for NATO using the Strider as a base. they can be found in Nato > Cars in the editor.
All Fenneks come with woodland desert and dark earth skins.
Both GMG and HMG Fenneks are armed with 2 Titan AT missiles and 2 Titan AA missiles each that can be fired from the main turret.
