The Nyala Armoured Personnel Carrier is alternately known as the RG12. It was designed specifically for the SAPS (South African Police Service) to fulfil its need for a Riot Control vehicle.
The 6 crew in the rear of the vehicle face outwards through large, mesh covered, bullet resistant windows. The 1.6m high side doors allow for rapid deployment.
It is an excellent, Riot Control, APC.
As the SAPS phase out their use of the overtly aggressive Casspir APC, the Nyala APC is being used very successfully in a wider range of policing roles.
