The Pandur is an APC developed and produced by the Austrian company Steyr-Daimler-Puch Spezialfahrzeuge (SSF). It was developed during the 1980s as a private venture. In 2003, General Dynamics took over Steyr-Daimler-Puch and is now part of General Dynamics European Land Combat Systems (ELCS), which is also the parent company of MOWAG and Santa Bárbara Sistemas.
