The RCV-9 is an armoured personnel carrier intended for riot control purposes and manufactured by Land Systems OMC (a business unit of BAE Systems) of South Africa.

Production history[edit]

It was developed in 1986 as a private venture by Sandock-Austral as an internal security vehicle for protecting high risk areas such as airports. Soon after the company taken over by TFM, it was merged into Reunert Defence OMC in 1997.
