ARAVIS®’s protection level outclasses that of all existing 4x4 vehicles, with the following combined protection levels : level 4 ballistic protection (defeats 14,5 mm threats), level 4 mine protection (defeats 10kg mines under the belly and wheels) , level 4 artillery splinters protection (defeats 155mm artillery threats) and IED protection. With its easily sustainable Unimog chassis, ARAVIS® offers as well a very high tactical mobility on road and in cross-country. It is transportable by air in C130, A400M and C17. This vehicule offers a large internal volume of 9.5 m3 and can carry 2 permanent crew plus up to 6 infantry men with their equipment. ARAVIS®, can be fitted with remote cotrolled weapon station. This vehicle is ideal to achieve piece keeping and law enforcement operation, especially in urban area.

It has been in service with French forces in the Afghan theatre of operations since the end of 2010 in carrying out road-opening missions undertaken by the Engineers corps.

The ARAVIS®, which is a 13-ton vehicle in combat order, is currently the best protected vehicle in its class on the market thanks to the SAFEPRO® concept which provides it with a high level of protection against projectiles (NATO level 4), against mines (NATO level 4A and 4B) and against shrapnel (155mm shells) and blast effects from improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
