Its armor provides protection against infantry weapons and fragmentation of artillery ammunition. In its MK configuration, it is armed with an automatic cannon mounted on the hull deck on a ring-type mount. In its TOW configuration, it is armed with six protected anti-tank guided missiles and a seventh mounted outside at the rear. This Wiesel I was used for evaluation by the US Army.
