SPV 400

Info
Manufacturer: Supacat Ltd.  
Product type: Auxiliary Vehicles  
Name: Patrol Vehicle  

The 4x4 SPV 400 Series concept, which carries a 2+4 crew and has a declared GVW of 7500kg, provides a useable payload of 1500kg. A 6x6 SPV 600 Series sister platform is due to follow.

The new design combines a fully integrated protection system with the cross-country capable high mobility automotive platform, combat proven by operational vehicles such as the Jackal. The integrated protection system features a V-shaped hull for mine blast protection and a composite crew “pod” enhancing protection from kinetic threats, as well as blast. The protection system developed in association with British armor expert NP Aerospace, includes mine-blast seats and configurable ballistic armor. The SPV survivability is predicated on “Fully Integrated Protection”, in which threat protection measures are integrated into the vehicle structure to achieve an optimized high protection, low weight solution. For example, the armored steel V-shaped chassis hull, manufactured as a single structure, with high ground standoff to provide integral blast protection. The axle assemblies are mounted in sacrificial sub frames, fore and aft of the hull, designed to blow off in the event of a wheel mine blast. The composite crew pod sits over the hull, between the wheels, and utilizes the latest composite and ceramic armor systems to mitigate the operational threats at optimal weight.

The SPV chassis design features high articulation independent suspension, air spring units and tuned-for-purpose damping coupled to managed power transmission provides all terrain mobility and speed. A starter-generator provides substantial electrical power for all mission scenarios and the same Cummins engine and Allison transmission system matches the logistic footprint of Jackal and Coyote.
