RG-34, also known as Iguana FV4, is a mine-resistant light armored vehicle designed by IADSA.

The Iguana was developed by IADSA, under contract from Sabiex in Belgium. In June 2009, BAE Land Systems obtained the rights to develop and manufacture the vehicle.[1]

As with all modern South-African military vehicles, special effort has been taken to make the vehicle mine-resistant. It has also a special multi-link hydro-pneumatic suspension, which is mounted on a very rigid structure. This provides the vehicle with excellent road performance, a small turning circle and comfortable clearance over humps.

The vehicle is suitable for several multi purpose light operations such as reconnaissance, patrol, command and logistics (e.g. ambulance), fire support (weapon platforms, including a 90mm low-recoil gun) and internal security.
