Sandcat M-LPV

Manufacturer: Plasan Sasa Ltd.  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Armoured car  

At the Eurosatory 2018, the Israeli company Plasan introduced the first sample of a new armored car based on the SandCat architecture of the 4th generation, created around the same powerful Ford chassis that were used by the first SandCat, designed as a fully structural monocoque, without a framework.

A new design without a framework allows to achieve a higher level of anti-mine protection, without paying the usual price in the form of additional weight and height. The M-LPV has compact dimensions, like the first SandCat, easy access due to a 5-door design and a total weight of less than 10 tons while simultaneously increasing mine protection to a level of 2a/2b by STANAG for all 8 people.

Peripheral protection is modular and can be configured to provide levels 2 or 3 for STANAG (or equivalent), taking into account the requirements for load capacity. Six fire ports allow the crew to fire from their weapon, and the interior is adapted to accommodate a large number of different communication systems and other equipment. The two-zone air conditioner is standard, and the options include a stand-alone heater, a filter-ventilating system (NBC), fire-fighting systems and a weapon stations with manual or remote control.
