Tactical Mine Protected Vehicle

Technical Solution Group

A new tactical armored and mine protected air transportable vehicle, optimized for urban warfare and low intensity conflicts was recently unveiled by TSG (April 2004). The Typhoon offers very high protection level, against typical urban warfare threats, higher than the level implemented by the Cougar. The added protection is achieved through the introduction of advanced armor with improved ballistic performance, and additional side-blast protection protecting against roadside bombs (IEDs). The Typhoon retains its high level of protection against landmine. According to TSG, Typhoon will be ready for production by the third quarter of 2004.
