Protector

North Charleston, SC- Protected Vehicles, Inc. is pleased to announce development of its newest wheeled combat vehicle The Protector.

Designed to improve upon the shortcomings encountered by the current HMMWV in operational theatre during missions and patrols in Iraq and Afghanistan, The Protector offers advanced armor solutions to threats from both improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and the more recent and devastating explosively formed penetrators (EFP) utilized by the enemy. With a curb weight of only 14,000 pounds, The Protector offers improved safety from ballistics, IEDs and EFPs in a lighter package than the HMMWV. In addition to standard armor, The Protector is designed to accept the up-armor ShieldAll™, available exclusively from Protected Vehicles, Inc. This revolutionary next-generation composite armor material is not only a lighter, more capable and cost-effective armor solution to steel, but has also been repeatedly tested at U.S. Government facilities as a proven defense against deadly EFPs. As the threats on a new asymmetric battlefront continue to evolve, The Protector has arrived to mitigate risks, protect the war-fighters and accomplish the mission.

Standard Specifications:

  • 7.62x54 AP Protection

  • Seating for 2+4

  • 2 Side Doors+1 Rear Door

  • Cruise Speed of 70 mph

  • Excess Payload of 7,500 lbs

  • C-130 Transportable

Optional Specifications:

  • IED and EFP Protection with ShieldAllTM

  • Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Protection

The Protector is PVI’s third vehicle, preceded by the GOLAN and the ALPHA. The company is currently providing both GOLANs and ALPHAs for the military.
