The Cougar H is a family of medium mine-protected vehicles which can be supplied in 4X4 or 6X6 layout. It can be configured for a wide range of tasks including troop carrying (up to 14 in the 6X6), EOD (4 troops and a large EOD robot in the 4X4), command and control, artillery prime mover, recovery and ambulance duty. Cougar H is in production. The versatile, multi-purpose Cougar Hardened Engineer Vehicle is the Marine Corps’ answer to threat of ballistic and mine-blast threats. The user-friendly vehicle is designed to protect both the driver and crew from ballistic and mine-blast threats.
The Cougar (known in the United Kingdom as 'Tempest', and previously it seems in the US as 'Lion' and 'Typhoon'), is designed to withstand a 30-pound blast of TNT to either the front or rear axles as well as a 15-pound blast to the center portion of the vehicle. The Cougar Hardened Engineer Vehicle, until 2002 marketed as the Lion, can be configured to complete a wide variety of mission requirements. The new HEV can serve as a mine-proof troop transport vehicle, a law enforcement special response vehicle, a weapons platform, or an escort protection vehicle.
The Cougar also has ballistic protection for the radiator, fuel tanks, and battery compartments. It is equipped with weapons ports, a M-240G machine gun mount, engineer/ Explosive Ordinance Disposal tool storage, two spare tires, and a Nuclear, Biological and Chemical overpressure and filter system. The vehicle gives EOD teams and engineers the ability to maneuver with the speed, mobility and survivability equal to the ground maneuver forces within the Marine Air Ground Task Force.
The user-friendly vehicle is designed to protect both the driver and crew from ballistic and mine-blast threats. The Cougar is scalable as well, meaning that it can be used for humanitarian efforts as well as combat by detaching the arms and gun systems to look less lethal, but still protects the crew against threats. The four-wheel drive edition seats four passengers, and the six-wheel drive edition seats 10 passengers. The Cougar has ballistic protection for the radiator, fuel tanks, battery compartments; and is equipped with weapons ports, M240G mount, engineer/EOD tool storage, two spare tires, and a Nuclear, Biological and Chemical overpressure and filter system. The Cougar HEV has an armored capsule designed to protect personnel, the engine and transmission from both ballistic and mine-blast threats.
Ballistic glass, another feature on the Cougar, allows troops to see and engage an enemy ambush through the gun ports in the glass not exposing themselves to fire. In a humvee, gunners are usually perched above the vehicle on a 50-caliber machine-gun open to enemy fire, while in some vehicles the passengers inside cannot see what direction enemy fire is coming from. In a Cougar you could just look out the glass and engage.
