The LAPV Enok (LAPV is a Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle) is an armoured military vehicle of the Bundeswehr, mostly in use with the German Army. It is a significantly further developed Wolf SSA, based on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

It features protection according to NATO STANAG 4569 Level 2 against rifle fire, land mines and improvised explosive devices. The Enok was especially designed to be deployed in harsh terrains and bad weather situations.

A first batch of 247 vehicles has been ordered by the Bundeswehr, with deliveries scheduled between 2008 and 2013.[1]
