The first Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance ( Wheeled) CVR(W) Fox prototype was completed in 1967. The Fox was being developed at the same time as the Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) Scorpion. Production was undertaken by the Royal Ordnance Factory, Leeds, but later bought out by Vickers Defense Systems.

Although somewhat similar in appearance to the Ferret, the Fox is a completely different vehicle. One big difference is the Fox has an all aluminum alloy hull. Like the Scorpion, the Fox is powered by the Jaguar J60 4.2 litre 6 cylinder. The 30mm RARDEN cannon that was fitted in the Scimitar is also in the Fox. The layout is similar to the CVR(T)s with the driver in the front of the hull and the gunner and commander in the turret. The turret were unique to the Fox but were later used on some CVR(T) s after the Fox was taken out of service. The Fox was originally manufactured with a floatation screen making the vehicle fully amphibious.

From WIKI .The FV721 Fox Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Wheeled) (CVR(W)) was a 4 × 4 armored car manufactured by Alvis, deployed by the British Army as a replacement for the Ferret scout car and the Saladin armored car. The Fox was introduced into service in May 1973 and withdrawn from 1993–94.

It had a crew of three and had a low profile rotating turret armed with a 30 mm L21 RARDEN cannon, which was manually fed with three-round magazines; 99 rounds were carried. A coaxial L37A2 7.62 mm machine gun was mounted with 2,600 rounds. The weapons were not stabilized. This turret was also equipped with a set of two 4-barrelled smoke dischargers. The vehicle had a combat weight of 6.75 tons and was designed to be air-portable.[1] The Fox had aluminum armor and was fitted with a flotation screen. It lacked protection against nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. Powered by a Jaguar 4.2-litre 6-cylinder petrol engine, the Fox was one of the fastest vehicles of its type.

The Fox was typically attached to armored and mechanized infantry battalions. The use of high mobility light vehicles such as the Fox would provide the ability to outflank heavier armored divisions. This also potentially enabled the Fox to act as a scout and a vehicle that can engage similar light vehicles. The all-welded aluminum armor hull and turret protected against medium gun fire and artillery splinters but not from heavy (.50 calibre) machine gun fire. The driver sat at the front and had an integral periscope/hatch cover that lifted and opened to the right. The centre mounted turret held the commander-loader on the left and gunner on the right. They each had a rear-opening hatch cover.[1] Without preparation, the Fox can ford one metre of water and a flotation screen can be erected in two minutes. Air portable, three Foxes can be carried by one C-130 Hercules aircraft, two of which can be parachute dropped.[1]
