Design and protection
The RAM Mk3 AT Nimrod is based on a monocoque hull. This has a fully enclosed troop compartment that carries a maximum crew of eight with the driver. It has two doors each side for entry and exit and it has two firing ports at the top. A large bullet-proof window is mounted at the front of the driver position and one smaller to each side. The personnel can easily fire in all directions. The RAM Mk3 AT Nimrod features ballistic armor, counter-mine blast protection techniques and a firewall bulkhead, separating the engine compartment and fuel tank from the crew compartment, protecting the crew, weapon system and power-pack. The vehicle maintains a low silhouette and reduced weight, offering superior battlefield survivability, land and air mobility necessary for special insert missions. The basic RAM maintains an integral blast-protected belly design and all-round ballistic protection, employing the ‘diamond shape’ for deflecting mine blasts away from the vehicle and defeating 7.62mm AP and 0.5” ball threats. The vehicle is offered in two ballistic versions and over 20 configurations, tailored for customer-specific requirements.
Mobility
The RAM Kk3 AT Nimrod is based on a 4x4 wheeled chassis. The vehicle is motorized with a 189 hp @2500 rpm Deutz air-cooled engine which has demonstrated very high reliability in continuous and extensive operation under extreme field conditions. The powerpack is mounted at the rear of the vehicle.
Accessories
A self-recovery winch is mounted at the front of the chassis. A spare wheel is fitted at the rear of the vehicle on the top of the powerpack.
