The Sentry ISR variant is based on AZCAN's Sentry armoured personnel carrier. With a heavy duty truck chassis, the Sentry remains reliable in the mots demanding conditions thanks to custom-designed components. Its advanced armoring materials provide protection against 7.62 x 51 SC ammunition, 7.62 x 51 M80 NATO ammunition and tested to meet NIJ-STD-0108.01 Level III as well as CEN BR7 ballistic standards.

The Sentry is powered by a 6.7L V8 turbocharged diesel engine (362 hp), coupled to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It features a 151 L fuel tank.

AZCAN's new ISR vehicle is armed with a Pitbull light remote weapon stations jointly designed by the Israel based companies IAI and General Robotics. The Pitbull LRWS integrate sensors for automatic detection of enemy targets with accurate and fast counter fire capabilities. The system includes optical fire source detectors for automatic detection of light arms shootings and ATR/ATM launchings.

The Pitbull further includes a Doppler radar which operates to acquire hidden targets in harsh weather conditions (day or night). The Pitbull system is also equipped with an Imaging Suite providing multiple video views of the nearby surroundings as well as targets from afar. The output of all these sensors, detectors and imaging suite is fused together over the RANGER RCU. The whole system has a weight of only 60 Kgs and low silouhette (less than 70 cm). It fits vairous weapon systems, such as the Negev 5.56 and 7.62 mm, or the FN MAG 7.62 mm.

The crew can realize ISR missions thanks to the mast installed on the rear side of the vehicle. This mast integrates the ELI-3302 Integrated Sensor Suite for ISR Vehicles designed by IAI Elta. ELI-3302's modular sensor suite includes ground movement detection radar, Day & Night EO Sensors, including laser range finder, COMINT/DF, Wireless Communications, Data Link and/or SATCOM and Unattended Seismic & Acoustic Sensors.
