Miscellaneous Info: Rheinmetall Defense entered their Wisent modular armored vehicle in the Class 4 (Up to 25 ton payload) category of the German Geschützte Führungs und Funktionsfahrzeuge Program (GFF). GFF is translated into English as "Protected Command & Role-Specific Vehicle".  The only other competitor was the Krauss-Maffei-Wegmann (KMW) Grizzly/GFF 4. "Wisent" translated into English is "European Buffalo" Although the Germans apparently purchased a small number of the GFF-4's for testing and evaluation purposes, it does not seem that they were adopted at the time of writing (2023).  In fact, the Wisent is not on Rheinmetall product list and is appearing to focus on their new Survivor R, unveiled in 2014.

The Wisent is very adaptable and can be configured in variants ranging from 6×6 to 10×10, and using a number of different "mission modules".  The modules include basic transport, command and control, explosive ordnance disposal, and logistics support, along with more specialized versions for command, control, communications and intelligence.
