Maybe not entirely new, but unknown to me.

The "Austrian-designed wheeled armored vehicle" is the 6x6 Pandur :

Thanks. A shame that there is no kit of the Pandur I.

Yes, a bit of an oversight for sure. But I expect that’ll be corrected soon enough*. There are some good images of these US SF rides with mini-guns in Syria. Most interesting. I note that one of the vehicles in HP’s montage has a flat right front tire / tyre.

*no, I’ve no inside knowledge about any pending kit release, just an educated guess.

I don`t think so. Austrian vehicles, even if they are now General Dynamic European Land Systems, never raised the interest of the mainstream companies. I would like to see the Pandur 1 and AGMS. Wasn`t there some vacu-formed kits of Österreichisches Bundeswehr?

MMK makes a 1/35 Pandur *II* kit, but not the Pandur I.

This Pandur vehicle is important because US SOFs won't take any unarmored vehicle outside the base into combat, meaning the Flyers, ATVs, and MRZRs are left behind the gate.

HSV, Hobby Spezial Vacu, but I don't know if he ever had a Pandur. If he did I would think that they are hard to find, maybe he has stopped producing vacu-kits.
I bought some from:
http://www.scaleshop.at/scaleshop/scale87/index.php?cat=c27_HSV-Modelle----1-35-.html&XTCsid=3pjh10o3uls9i3e0b7vuliji66
but it looks empty now .....

I would hope for the best and wait for some Chinese manufcturer to run out of suitable projects.

After having some unpleasant experiences with NIMIX kits, I would opt for a scratch-build.

Scalemates agree with you
https://www.scalemates.com/brands/hsv-heeres-spezial-vacu--2257
and I also remember that name but it seems to have been changed lately (the last couple of years or so....)
