Info

Product type: Auxiliary Vehicles  
Name: Mine protected carrier  

Scorpion is a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle which has been designed for tactical response teams and can be configured for a multitude of military applications. The advanced V Shape Hull design of Scorpion incorporates a high ground clearance and acute turning circle, allowing for a superior off-road capability. The Scorpion is fully armored to STANAG 4569 Level 2 and is able to withstand blast effects from mines and IED attacks. Scorpionís running gear and braking systems have been designed and tested meticulously to ensure they support the fully loaded weight of the vehicle and payload on all types of ground.

The vehicle was displayed at the Eurosatory 2016.

The Scorpion MRAP vehicle offers STANAG 4569 Level II armoured protection to protect the crew from blast effects from mines and improvised explosive device (IED) attacks. The crew compartment can be up-armoured to offer STANAG 4569 Level III protection.

The vehicle can be integrated with add-on armour for high levels of protection against 7.62mm × 51mm calibre armoured piercing rounds fired from a distance of 30m at a speed of 930m/s. The armour on the floor allows the APC to withstand the explosion of an 8kg mine at any place under the hull and any wheel. Additionally, the V-shaped hull deflects the blast force away from the vehicle.

The power-pack and fuel tank are also armoured to safeguard the mobility of the vehicle in the event of an attack. The vehicle can be installed with customer-specific equipment and systems including anti-blast mine seats, benches and individual bucket seats for protection against under-body explosions.
