Historical Description[]

The MX-7 Gagamba was built for the Philippine Army in 2007. The team behind its creation took the British Ferret Mk2 Scout Car and vastly improved its durability, engine, and transmission, bringing the 1950s vehicle up to modern standards. The Gagamba’s purpose was to fill the Armored Escort Vehicle role and thus was outfitted with a 7.62mm manned turret and 6 smoke grenade launchers. Its armor consistently deflects 7.62mm rounds, even point blank.

Despite the MX7 Gagamba’s strengths, the Armored Escort Vehicle contract went to a similar vehicle created by the same company, the MX-8 Armored Escort Vehicle. The Philippine Army found that the Gagamba was surprisingly vulnerable to RPG rounds and since the MX-7 was based on a vehicle that was initially produced in the 1950s, repair parts were expensive and difficult to come by.
