Plasan to unveil a new armored vehicle at Expo Seguridad: the YAGU

At the upcoming Expo Seguridad in Mexico City Plasan will be showing its broad range of products and solutions including the world debut of an all-new vehicle that moves the boundary of what was previously believed to be possible.

Over recent years, and following the huge success of Plasan designed and protected vehicles like the Navistar MaxxPro MRAP and Oshkosh M-ATV, Plasan has continued to broaden its product offering, both as a supplier of advanced survivability solutions and, in certain markets, whole vehicles like the ubiquitous SandCatStormer family. Plasan's specialty has always been high quality but cost-effective solutions, carefully balancing the triangle of weight, protection, and cost. At the top end this has led to leading solutions in Stanag 4-6 add-on kits and blast-management systems for APCs and IFVs, being supplied to major OEMs and integrators for use by some of the most advanced militaries in the world.

In the middle of the Plasan spectrum sits the flagship SandCatStormer, a family of vehicles in use by more than 15 countries over 5 continents. The SandCat family continues to grow and evolve and the latest version of the Stormer variant will be on display at Expo Seguridad.

At the light end of Plasan's range, the all-new Yagu will be making its world debut at an unveiling on the Plasan stand at the exhibition. In the spirit of "the element of surprise" that the new vehicle embodies, details are still scarce but we can reveal that it is an ultralight and super agile vehicle with an unprecedented level of protection for a vehicle at this low weight. Plasan has achieved what was previously believed to be impossible. There is high demand for a light and agile vehicle with the dynamic attributes of a buggy but invariably the need for protection is traded off in the interests of keeping the weight down. These unprotected vehicles end up unusable in dangerous areas and are often relegated to the role of runarounds on bases; disappointed soldiers have been known to call them "expensive golf carts". By contrast, Yagu carries a crew of 3 with 360° protection against high velocity threats, in air-conditioned comfort, with excellent situational awareness. With the optional Remote Weapon Station, it is a truly usable combat vehicle, deployable for use by special forces, border guards, or on counter-terror operations. Easily maneuverable in urban environments, and highly mobile off-road, there is nowhere that Yagu can't take the chase.

Come and see Plasan's broad range of protection and survivability solutions, and the world debut of Yagu, at Expo Seguridad in Mexico City from the 24th-26th April, Booth No. 1415
