Prototyp TPz Fuchs 8x8
 

When the Fuchs was developed in the drive form 6x6, also prototypes of the Fuchs in the drive form 4x4 and 8x8 were built. At least one prototype of the Transportpanzer (TPz) Fuchs 8x8 (wheeled armoured personnel carriers / wheeled APC) was built. However, there was no serial production of this variant.

This prototype was later rebuilt into a Radschützenpanzer Fuchs 8x8 (wheeled infantry fighting vehicles / wheeled IFV). It was possible to pick up a turret with a 25 mm automatic cannon. Also this variant was not accepted by the market and it came also in this case to no series production. After that, the project Fuchs 8x8 was abandoned.

The photos show the variant Transportpanzer (TPz) Fuchs 8x8.
