BACKGROUNDER

excerpts

“The all-protected hull comprises an
armored box made of ballistic steel,
augmented by advanced armor offering
optimal protection at the required weight level.

The armored hull offers the highest level of armored protection possible for a 4×4 vehicle – B6-B7 protection, stopping
multiple hits of all types of 7.62 AP
ammunition, mine protection and IED
threats, shrapnel and artillery fragments.

Different armor technologies used,
include metal-composite cage built with wall-to-wall bonding enabling high
integrity and roll protection without the
use of heavy roll bars. Side plates are used to increase protection against IEDs.”

    Good morning oga beegeagle
    this is very interesting news. Relying on your impeccable sources this might be the first armored vehicle coming to our shores from Israel. Since i am the very first to comment on this i will say hmm.

    Oga Beeg, have you seen any branch of the Nigerian military/Police using the vehicle. I have never seen any before. Although it been a while since i left Nigeria.

    Not seen one until the photo of the ‘obscure M-LPV’ below which is a SandCat apparently, even if made in Israel and not by Oshkosh Corporation of America.

    Me thinks this Acquisition must have been quietly added to Nigeria’s Army, we do know the army is fond of keeping secret most equipments sir, it is even on this blog you have shown us first ever seen BTR-3s dat r not listed. I just hope this is Gospel truth, it would enable Recce, CTCOIN and SF Chaps do dia jobs with more deadly precision.
