They began developing an armoured, all-terrain, light-wheeled tank for the German Armed Forces as early as 1961. The 6-wheeled Fox armoured personnel carrier was then introduced in the mid-1960’s as a successor to the small Hotchkiss infantry combat vehicle and the M113 armoured personnel carrier. As well as the driver and front passenger, the Fox can carry up to eight soldiers in its rear compartment and, up to 1993, over 1,000 were purchased by the German Armed Forces. The Fox is used in a wide range of areas in the force in various configurations and has a range of up to 800 kilometres. Its maximum speed is at least 105 km/h.
Schuco has produced a miniature model of this Fuchs to a scale of 1:87. Military models come with a metal body. As is expected of Schuco models, a number of key features have been reproduced exactly with the greatest attention to detail.
Warning! Not suitable for children under 14 years.

The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was a NATO-led military mission in Afghanistan, established by the United Nations Security Council in December 2001 by Resolution 1386, as envisaged by the Bonn Agreement. Its main purpose was to train the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and assist Afghanistan in rebuilding key government institutions, but was also engaged in the War in Afghanistan (2001–present) against the Taliban insurgency. ISAF ceased combat operations and was disbanded in December 2014, with some troops remaining behind in an advisory role as part of ISAF's successor organization, the Resolute Support Mission.
