TAPV is the variant of the COMMANDO Elite.

Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) is a 4x4 wheeled armoured vehicle specifically engineered and designed to provide survivability, mobility and versatility across the asymmetric battlefield over the full spectrum of operations.

The comprehensive, modern design is aimed at shielding troops from roadside bombs and blasts while providing large power reserves for future electronics enhancements, with an ergonomically designed interior for optimum comfort and payload. The vehicle has been tested extensively to confirm ballistic, blast, mobility and reliability levels that meet or exceed the Canadian TAPV requirements.

Textron Systems TAPV offers off-road and urban maneuverability, allowing it to serve in both offensive and defensive capacities. The vehicle is designed with a focus on ergonomics and interior layout options for multiple mission capabilities.

This allows configuration for patrol, convoy protection, command and control, utility, mortar carrier, ambulance or personnel carrier missions. Further, given its mobility, the vehicle is an exponentially more difficult target for insurgents emplacing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along roadways.

With a focus on crew protection, mobility, performance and payload, Textron Systems TAPV is the game-changing solution for Canadas national security requirements for the next 25 years.
