Armoured Fighting Vehicles

Volume 470: debated on Wednesday 23 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what are the (a) combat and (b) un-laden weight of the (i) WMIK, (ii) E-WMIK and (iii) M-WMIK vehicles. (180097)

The (a) combat weight of WMIK, E-WMIK and M-WMIK vehicles will vary depending on the type of operation they are involved in. Additionally it would not be appropriate to release the combat weight of these vehicles as to do so would potentially prejudice the security and effectiveness of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The (b) un-laden weight of the WMIK, E-WMIK and M-WMIK vehicles are set out in the following table:

(b) Un-laden weight kg

WMIK

2,089

E-WMIK

2,960

M-WMIK
