DRONA MPV Mark-I
|Manufacturer:||Shri Lakshmi Defence Solutions Ltd.|
|Product type:||Auxiliary Vehicles|
|Name:||Mine protected carrier|
It is the latest development from Shri Lakshmi Defence range of high mobility vehicles.
DRONA (MPV), a perfect for mine protection vehicle, is based on creating the maximum distance and protection between the seat of a cabin and mine explosion. The front fenders and the hood are attached to the chassis to reduce the shock against blast, transmitted to the cabin. The front wheel base, are located forward of the crew cabin and when selected, a 'V' shape-armoring cell protects the rear wheels, so that if a mine detonates under the wheel, the burst of explosion is diverted outwards, thus minimizing the damage to the crew cabin. Drona (MPV) has top speed of 145 kmph & 95 kmph.
Building with previous experience and integrating the feedback from the operational field forces, the DRONA MPV (D-1) is based on creating the maximum distance and protection between the seat of a cabin and mine explosion.
The front tender’s and the hood are attached to the chassis to reduce the shock against blast transmitted to the cabin.
The front wheel base, are located forward of the crew cabin and with a ‘V shape-armouring cell protects the rear wheels, so that If a mine detonates under the wheel, the burst of explosion is diverted outwards thus minimising the damage to the crew cabin.
The DRONA MPV (D-1) will take the higher performance levels of lightweight protected mobility platforms beyond the currently offered vehicles around
“Fully integrated protection” is the key to the DRONA MPV (D-1) formula which, is combined with a cutting edge bespoke automotive solution, this will offer high levels of protection up to B 7 & mine protection, yet remain sufficiently packaged to access the tightest of terrain.
The DRONA MPV (D-1) is “go anywhere” with supreme cross-country performance, as well as provide the protection required to operate in an urban environment.
The operator’s needs and the integration of modem battlefield systems have been considered from the outset so the DRONA NPV (S-1) will be a highly attractive and ‘useable’ solution for naxalite operations.
The Imminent launch of the DRONA MPV (S-1) will be followed by the development of a 6x6 DRONA MPV (D-1) Series platform
DRONA MPV (D-1) comes fitted with Runflats, all terrain tyres, self recovery winch, rotating turret with weapon mounting station. RHD or LHD. weapon mounts, smoke grenade launchers.
The DRONA MPV (S-1) has a fully integrated protection system comprising of a V-shaped hull to provide mine blast protection and a composite crew pod to provide both blast and ballistic protection.
The system includes mine blast seats and can be configured to meet specific operational threats.
