   The Supacat Coyote is a 6x6 version of the Jackal 2. It has enhanced capabilities, comparing with the 4x4 Jackal. It also offers greater range and flexibility. The Supacat Coyote is intended to support long-range patrols. It is also used to transport troops, equipment and supplies. The British Army ordered more than 70 of these vehicles for service in Afghanistan. First Coyotes were delivered in 2009.

   The Coyote is based on the Supacat HMT 600 6x6 chassis. This vehicle is well suited to the desert terrain. It has a payload capacity of up to 3 000 kg. It accommodates driver, three passengers and has a flexible loading area at the rear. This patrol vehicle can also tow light trailers or artillery pieces.

   It is an open vehicle, where emphasis is stressed on firepower and visibility rather than protection. The Coyote has provision for two crew-served weapons. It has a gun-ring and can be armed with various combinations of 12.7-mm machine guns, 7.62-mm machine guns, and 40-mm automatic grenade launchers.

   This patrol vehicle is available with optional armor kit, which provides protection against mine blasts, small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Its protection is limited, so the vehicle exploits its mobility in order to avoid contacts with enemy. Main defenses of this vehicle are speed and maneuvering. The Coyote is fitted with smoke grenade dischargers.

   The Coyote is powered by Cummins 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 180 hp. It is coupled with 5-speed automatic transmission. Vehicle has unusual mid-engined drivetrain layout. It can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules or larger military cargo aircraft.
