Designed for armored scout and liaison missions, SCARAB armored vehicle is equipped with a powerful automotive system to provide speed and agility. The vehicle uses a 6,370cc OM906LA 240hp Mercedes Benz 6 cylinder diesel engine and an Allison MD 3560 six speed automatic transmission. At a maximum battle weight of 11.1 tons and a payload capacity of 2.5 tons, Scarab offers high protection level.
