Description

The Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) is a wheeled combat vehicle that can fulfill a variety of roles on the battlefield, including reconnaissance, surveillance, security, command and control activities, and the armoured transport of personnel.

The TAPV relies uponcomposite armourto provide the maximum protection to occupants. The TAPV also has a V-shaped hull and a high ground clearance, which provides protection againstmineandimprovised explosive device(IED) blasts. The TAPV can withstand up to 10kg of explosive force directly under its hull, and can resist even 12.7mm armour-piercing rounds. Each of the seats in the vehicle are blast protected, and the vehicle has vented wheel wells to disperse the energy of an explosion out from the vehicle.
