Lynx Skyranger is a combination of the Lynx IFV hull and the cutting-edge Skyranger turret proposed for the Hungarian military in 2022. The Lynx by Rheinmetall is one of the most modern infantry fighting vehicles currently offered. The idea behind it was to offer a more affordable alternative to various over-engineered modern IFVs such as the Puma. Not necessarily worse, just less complex and with significantly lower lifetime costs. The first, lighter version of this private venture (KF31) appeared at the Eurosatory 2016 expo in France.

Two years later, in 2018, another model was unveiled – the significantly heavier KF41 with correspondingly improved protection levels. The vehicle itself was designed by Rheinmetall engineers to be as modular and easy to maintain as possible while offering unparalleled configurability. 218 KF41 Lynx IFVs were ordered by Hungary in 2020 to replace its obsolete fleet of BMPs as a part of the Zrinyi 2026 re-armament program. Hungary also ordered the development of other versions as well, including an air-defense variant using the Skyranger turret.

The Rheinmetall Skyranger is a short-range anti-aircraft combat module that is fully modular and can be installed on any number of platforms, including the Boxer, Pandur, or the Lynx. The main weapon of the module is the 30mm Oerlikon KCE Revolver Gun. The secondary weapon system is a twin-tube launcher for short-range anti-aircraft missiles such as Starstreak, Stinger or TALON. The tertiary weapon system can be a combat laser (in the HEL variant represented in the game). This is primarily an anti-drone weapon system.

The turret was unveiled in the February of 2022 and currently remains an early prototype only. The technology should be ready by the end of this year and will be waiting for its first customer.

Vehicle Traits[ | ]

  • Harder to Spot: When moving slowly, this vehicle does not lose any camouflage and can effectively creep around.
  • NERA: This vehicle's ablative armor provides additional protection, but deteriorates with each hit taken.
  • Unmanned Turret: This vehicle features a remotely-controlled or low-profile turret that receives reduced damage.
  • Kinetic Missiles: This vehicle is armed with hypersonic missiles with a kinetic penetrator that can punch through practically any armor, especially at great distances.
  • Programmable Ammunition: Special ammunition type that explodes over a target, dealing significant damage to poorly armored top areas such as the engine deck.
  • High Energy Laser: This vehicle is equipped with a combat laser that can blind enemy vehicles, significantly reducing their spotting abilities.

This vehicle's steel hull is relatively thin by itself, but it is covered by additional NERA modules, bringing its protection levels to those of heavier AFVs. NERA modules offer excellent protection at the beginning of a match, but their protection levels decrease with damage taken.
