Title: Protector - Mine Protected Armored Vehicle atModern Day Marine 2007

Copyright: Noam Eshel, Defense Update

Details & reference: Protected Vehicles Inc. introduced at Modern Day Marine 2007 a lightweight 4x4 mine-protected armored vehicle designed to replace up-armored HMMWVs for high threat missions. At maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 14,500 lbs in the hard top version, the Protector, accommodating a crew of 8 (driver, commander and six troops) is optimized for missions where up-armored HMMWVs are not adequately protected, while the heavier MRAP does not have the required mobility and maneuverability to perform a wide diversity of missions. These could include urban combat, reconnaissance and patrol, transport for combat engineering teams, command and control and casualties evacuation.
