It is not yet known when these vehicles will reach operational readiness. However, given Mexico’s current public safety crisis, the Sandcats will face action anytime soon.

Although more details regarding this purchase are still unknown, we do believe that Mexican troops are in desperate need of modern armored vehicles to effectively tackle organized crime gangs. The Sandcat will therefore receive a warm welcome among soldiers.

The Sandcat of the Mexican is equipped with a small turret mounted to the top of the vehicle, armed with a 7.62 mm machine gun.
