Armoring Features

  • Armor consists of all welded ballistic grade steel construction. Steel used is tested to protect against 7.62x51mm, M80 NATO Ball ammunition (CEN Level B6).

  • Custom designed stainless steel chassis box with armored bulkhead w/gun-port and sliding door. Box is designed to be level with the top of the wheel-wells to allow for interior and exterior storage compartments.

  • Five sided armoring to Level B6 ballistic standards, with insulated interior lining.

  • Vehicle's armor plates are stitch-welded using high-intensity MIG welders. The above process ensures the structural integrity is not compromised by the thermal and chemical variations of the material. Insulation in sidewalls, ceiling, rear walls, and doors.

  • Front mounted push-bar and HD ram bumper with sight guides.

  • The interior frame, constructed of ballistic grade steel, provides overlap and backup protection for the large-surface principal impact areas such as the doors and windows while reinforcing the structural integrity of the pillars and other areas.

  • Floor is fitted with a blast protection to protect occupants against fragmentation from simultaneous detonation of 2 DM-51 German ordnance hand grenades or equivalent.

  • Vehicle armoring constructed in such a way as to ensure that a projectile following a linear or angled path shall not enter the vehicle's interior without contacting the armor material. In addition to this, the possibility of a projectile entering the vehicle's interior due to a ricochet from the armor shall also be minimized.

  • Ballistic protection of air brake receiver tank and fuel tank with heavy armored box protection around both batteries to armor level B6.

  • 900-gallon water tank mounted in the rear of the custom designed chassis box. Tank is mounted with baffles to reduce movement while vehicle is in motion.

  • Front and rear towing hooks MIG-welded to the frame of the vehicle.
