The Bushmaster is a 4WD (constant) on and off-road vehicle designed to transport 10 troops, including a driver, with their weapons and equipment. The Bushmaster itself can be transported by road, rail or air.
The hull is a fully welded monocoque structure made from steel armoured plate. Internally, there are two square hatches and a gun ring with hatch fitted in the roof, and a single access door at the rear of the vehicle. Externally, two mounting points for quick-connect swing arm gun mounts are fitted to the roof, which are accessed through the rear roof hatches.
The powertrain consists of a Caterpillar diesel engine coupled to a ZF six-speed automatic transmission.
The vehicle is fitted with a Central Tyre Inflation System which allows manual or automatic control of tyre pressure based on terrain and vehicle speed, to reduce the likelihood of tyre damage.
