The SandCat TPV, part of Oshkosh’s light-payload vehicle portfolio, offers a protected, highly maneuverable vehicle for use in law enforcement, border patrol and security operations, among others.
“The SandCat TPV can provide security forces with swift mobility and optimal protection, whether used in combating crime in tightly confined urban areas or patrolling borders in remote, off-road landscapes,” said Serge Buchakjian, senior vice president and general manager of International Programs for Oshkosh Defense.
The SandCat TPV is part of the Oshkosh SandCat family of vehicles and can be configured to meet individual performance, protection and payload needs. The vehicle’s armor system can be customized based on the threat level and mission profile. Seating capacity can be adjusted to accommodate four to nine passengers.
The vehicle also can be equipped with standard or customized storage, and is typically integrated with a wide array of weapons and communications systems.
The SandCat TPV’s compact design, combined with an 18-inch vertical step capability and 42-foot curb-to-curb turning circle, enables mobility in both tight urban settings and rugged rural landscapes.
The SandCat family of vehicles also includes the base vehicle, Special Operations Vehicle (SOV) and Mine-Resistant Light Patrol Vehicle (M-LPV). These variants are based on the same lightweight, highly maneuverable platform for eased maintenance and repairs worldwide.
Oshkosh has received orders for the SandCat from Mexico, Sweden, Bulgaria, Canada, NIGERIA and Israel.
