Miscellaneous Info:

Originally named the "Ojay" (after it's designers) the Kudu was developed to defeat land mines by re-directing the blast force away from vehicle’s occupants.   Military, Police Units and even civilians used this vehicle.  Most vehicles produced were based on the Land Rover Series 3S Long Wheel Base chassis, although some variants used Ford, Toyota and Nissan frames and chassis.

  

The versions produced were the Kudu 4, Kudu 6, Kudu 8, Kudu Mark 10, Ram (based on a Nissan), and Kudu "Township/Kudette".  The “Kudette” was a non-mine protected variant produced for police forces to be used in urban areas. Even a few 2-seat "capsules" and cargo/utility vehicles were produced as well, but not in any large numbers.
