With blast protection of up to STANAG 4569 Level II a and b, the BATT UMG incorporates high blast protection in the small APC-sized class. A custom in-house axle design allows for an extra 6,000 lbs of payload capacity which means our BATT can handle the weight of the added armoring requirement.
The BATT UMG is mission ready and is regularly equipped with military-grade surveillance and communications systems. Supporting a wide array of mission types, the BATT UMG is commonly found supporting in the following industries: special forces, law enforcement, homeland security, border patrol, and other armed conflicts. The BATT UMG can also be equipped to fulfill the following roles: troop transport, command and control center, VIP transport, and an armored medical center.
The BATT UMG is built on a commercially available civilian platform which is then militarized to TAG’s highest standards for survivability in conflict zones. Based on a Ford F550, the vehicle is motorized with a V8 diesel turbocharged engine, coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ford-based chassis gives the BATT UMG access one of the largest OEM international parts distribution networks in the world making the BATT repairable in the most remote regions of the planet.
The BATT UMG shares the same benefits of our BATT-X APC with its completely accessible engine bay and power pack which can be completely removed and replaced within 10 hours. TAG utilizes its 140,000 sq ft technology center conveniently located in Detroit Motor City to liaise with major OEM automotive manufacturers to ensure all modifications and upfits adhere to their strict guidelines set forth in their own manufacturing processes. This has allowed TAG the opportunity to work directly with Ford to complete a full RHD steering conversion utilizing Ford OEM parts for the 75 countries that need it.
