   The ATTC or All-Terrain Tracked Carrier was developed by Singapore Technologies Kinetics in cooperation with Thales of UK. It was specially developed to meet requirements of the Singapore Army. Development commenced in the mid-1990s. This articulated vehicle was revealed in 2000. It entered service with the Singapore Armed Forces in 2001. It is also proposed for export customers as the Bronco. This vehicle was selected by the UK MoD for use in Afghanistan, and was locally designated as the Warthog. A total of 115 vehicles were ordered by the UK. A majority of them were delivered in 2010.

   The Bronco tracked carrier is similar in concept to the Bv 206S and BvS 10 Viking, but is a more capable vehicle. It has greater internal volume, payload capacity and range. Vehicle consists of two articulated units. Its armor provides protection against 7.62 mm rounds and artillery shell splinters. Bulletproof windows provide the same level of protection as the hull. Vehicle can be fitted with add-on modular protection package according to battlefield requirements.

   Vehicle provides seating for a crew of 16. Six of them are seated in the forward unit and ten in the rear. Forward unit has entry doors in either side of the hull and roof hatches. The rear unit is fitted with a large doors. Maximum payload capacity is up to 4.2 t. Furthermore the Bronco can additionally tow a special wheeled trailer.

   This armored all-terrain vehicle can be armed with a roof-mounted 7.62 mm machine gun. This machine gun is typically mounted on the forward unit. Though many of these vehicles carry no defensive armament.

   The Bronco is powered by a Caterpillar 3126B turbocharged diesel engine, developing 350 hp. Engine is located at the rear part of the forward unit. Vehicle has wide tracks and low ground pressure. These features make it ideal for travelling on any terrain, including mud, swamps or snow. The ATTC is fully amphibious with minimum preparation. On water it is propelled by its tracks.

   Vehicle can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules.

   The baseline Bronco was modified for a wide range of battlefield missions. There are numerous versions of this tracked armored all-terrain vehicle. It was also proposed for various civil applications.
