This is how the Rapid Action Group of the Civil Guard prepares for its international missions


Several agents of the Rapid Action Group of the Civil Guard are taking a driving course for the Lince military vehicle.

It is called the MLV Lince vehicle and it is a 4x4 for military use manufactured by Iveco in 2000. It allows several configurations since you can choose a short or long chassis, armored or unarmored bodywork, etc.

It has a capacity in its rear space from two to five occupants depending on the cargo space that is required. It measures 4.8 meters long by 2.2 wide and 2 high. It reaches a maximum speed of 110 km / h with a range of 500 kilometers thanks to a 185 hp turbodiesel engine.

Armored military vehicle

Among its characteristics, it stands out as a priority to provide the greatest protection to the people who go inside against mines and explosive devices in general.

The Lince vehicle allows a partial armor to reduce its weight and thus make it more versatile for any type of terrain.

Now agents of the Civil Guard, specifically two instructors, and seven students are receiving an F card course that allows driving this type of vehicle. It is being held in the premises of the Cenad in San Gregorio Zaragoza and lasts for 15 days.

The Lince vehicle reaches 110 km / h with a range of 500 kilometers. The course consists of a theoretical part lasting three days and another practical part of 12 that is divided into two phases. In both, all types of driving practices and situations are carried out in different terrains to achieve a maximum degree of control of the Lince vehicle, whose fundamental use is carried out in international missions.
