   The MOWAG Eagle V is a further development of the previous Eagle IV. It is available in 4x4 and 6x6 configurations. A 4x4 version was publicly revealed in 2010, while the 6x6 followed in 2012. The 6x6 version was mainly aimed at the Australian Army requirement. The Eagle V fills the gap between uparmored HMMWVs and larger mine resistant ambush protected vehicles. German Army ordered 176 Eagle V 4x4 protected command vehicles. It is worth mentioning that the previous Eagle IV is still being marketed.

   The new vehicle can carry more payload and has increased protection comparing with its predecessor. The Eagle V family has approximately 80% of commonality between 4x4 and 6x6 versions. Vehicle also uses components of the previous Eagle IV and DURO IIIP tactical truck. These versatile protected vehicles can be tailored to meet various mission requirements, such as utility, troop/cargo transport, patrol, reconnaissance, command and control, ambulance, observation and so on.

   The Eagle V is better protected than the previous Eagle IV. Add-on modular armor can be fitted for a higher level of protection. Modular armor is made of steel and composite material. It is claimed that the Eagle V has a MRAP class mine protection. Vehicle has a double V-shaped hull to minimize mine blast penetration. Interior is fitted with blast-absorbing seats.

   Vehicle can be fitted with remotely controlled weapon station for self-defense. It can be armed with 5.56-mm, 7.62-mm or 12.7-mm machine gun, or 40-mm automatic grenade launcher.

   The 4x4 version accommodates the driver and 3 to 5 troops. There is also a cargo version with a two-seater cab. It has payload capacity of 3.3 to 3.6 t. The 6x6 version accommodates the driver plus about 14 troops. It can carry 6.5 to 6.9 t of payload. The 6x6 version can carry standard NATO pallets.

   All MOWAG Eagle V vehicles, both 4x4 and 6x6 are powered by the same Cummins ISB 6.7 E3 245 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 245 hp. Despite that engine of the 6x6 delivers slightly more torque. Engine is mated to Allison 5-speed automatic transmission. Vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive. A central tyre inflation system is fitted as standard. A self-recovery winch is optional.

   The Eagle V can be airlifted by a CH-47 Chinook helicopter or C-130 Hercules tactical cargo aircraft.
