XM93 Fox NBC Reconnaissance System

The Fox is the Army's first reconnaissance vehicle whose primary missions are nuclear-biological-chemical detection, warning, identification, and analysis. Contamination hazards to the crew are minimized by the vehicle's built-in chemical overpressure system. In support of Operations DESERT SHIELD-DESERT STORM the German government donated sixty XM93s, of which fifty were employed by the Army.
