highly mobile, off-road platforms are based on a Supacat design,
offering superior cross-country mobility and flexible aerial
deployment options. While the basic chassis is unarmored, but
since MWMIK has larger payload capacity, compared to previous
Land Rover based vehicles, it could be installed with add-on
protection where required. The vehicle is powered by a Cummins
diesel engine and an Allison transmission. The chassis will
be built by Universal Engineering.
The vehicle is designed to be equipped with armor protection
while maintaining full performance. Its top speed is 80 mph.
Typical weapons which can be mounted on three pintle mounted
gun mounts include .50 caliber machine gun, 7.62 machine guns
and an automatic grenade. The vehicle carries up to three soldiers
with their individual weapons. DML has also recently been awarded
a separate contract for a number of MEP (Military Enhancement
Program) vehicles. These are 6x6 load carrying all-terrain vehicles
based on the same technology as MWMIK.
