IMI is unveiling the ‘COMBATGUARD’, an armored combat vehicle built for today’s challenging and rapidly changing battlefield. Designed for off-road operations, and supports different levels of protection, COMBATGUARD has demonstrated mobility levels matching or exceeding tracked combat vehicles. IMI is introducing the new vehicle at IMI’s booth D570 at the Eurosatory international defense and security exhibition in Paris, France on June 16-20, 2014.

IMI’s COMBATGUARD is designed to address the military requirements to operate over a wide spectrum of military operations, deliver protected combat mobility under changing battlefield conditions, from high intensity combat through asymmetric and peacekeeping operations.

COMBATGUARD is designed to flexibly adapt to changing terrain conditions, enabling combat forces to rapidly deploy protected mobility into and across theater, rapidly adapting to any threat they may encounter.

Developed by IMI, Israel’s leading authority in combat mobility and Ido off-road Center, - a renowned Israeli design house for high mobility and off road wheeled platforms, the 4x4 wheeled vehicle is designed to negotiate extreme harsh terrain with agility, speed and lethality.

The protected mobility it provides, enables combat units to rapidly deliver effects where and when required, supporting different operational missions in low or high intensity warfare. Typical missions could range from border security and supporting counter-terror operations, to deployment in dense urban areas or on other challenging terrain.

COMBATGUARD is designed as a modular vehicle, enabling specific customization into combat or combat support variants, such as scout, command, intelligence, communications support and others. The vehicle is built to enable the crew to operate weapons from within the protected capsule, using windows’ firing ports and an optional roof-mounted remote controlled weapon station (RCWS).

Unlike vehicles based on modified commercial or military chassis, COMBATGUARD "Monocoque" capsule represents ‘clean sheet design’, optimized for military missions. It is prepared for decades of reliable and efficient operations under harsh terrain and environmental conditions.

COMBATGUARD was designed to offer low life cycle cost. Maintenance and support are designed for simplicity and efficiency, utilizing an integrated automotive drivetrain and off-the shelf spare parts.

COMBATGUARD provides high mobility over rough topography, including sand, rocky and rugged terrain. The eight-ton vehicle can carry 1.5 tons of payload, powered by a 300hp diesel engine. Its maximum road speed is 150 km/h, while off-road mobility is enabled by customized 54 inch wheels. The COMBATGUARD can ford water obstacles up to 1.5 meter deep and climb vertical obstacles up to 80 cm in forward drive and in reverse.

The COMBATGUARD protected hull accommodates 6 or 8 fully equipped troops along with modern, advanced weapon systems. Locating the wheels on the capsule’s sides also enhances the capsule’s protection. The modular design enables the application of different levels of protection, including protection against advanced threats such as EFP, land mines and blast. COMBATGUARD can also be equipped with IMI’s ’’Bright Arrow’’ - an active protection system integrated with the vehicle’s optional remote controlled weapon station.
