The BALKAN MK7(Ford F550), ARMET’s latest version of its APC is configured to carry a tactically equipped crew of up to ten person. The vehicle is fitted with four side doors and either a single rear door or 30%-70% double rapid deployment doors.
Mounted on the Ford F550 chassis, repair and spare parts are available throughout the worldwide Ford Motor Company.
The Balkan is armored to the NATO STANAG 4569 level 3 which exceeds the CEN European B7 armor level. With its hollow cavity walls filled with THIKA MINEPLATE™ blast protective materials, the side armor provides excellent protection against side load IEDs.
In addition to its frontal armor, the firewall is a second armored wall that further protects the driver and front passenger from a frontal attack.
As well as the foregoing, the floor is protected from blast and even with this superior armored protection, the payload after armoring is still in excess of 1,134 kg (2,500lbs).
