Description

At Eurosatory 2010, the French Defence Company ACMAT unveils its new light wheeled armoured vehicle the Bastion HD. The Bastion HD is a 4x4, high-mobility infantry and reconnaissance armoured vehicle developed based on the rugged chassis of the VLRA 2 series to provide a capable and reliable multirole platform. Bastion HD is economically built with common parts of VLRA 2, enabling easy maintenance and uncomplicated logistics. The mechanical and automotive components of Bastion HD carry the basic design of a standard VLRA 2. The Bastion HD incorporates blast protection technology with the mobility of a light armoured vehicle. It was developed to keep the war fighter safe and tackle evolving threats. The Bastion HD is multimission capable and is ideal for reconnaissance, forward command and control, patrol, security, escort, route clearance support, peacekeeping, EOD, and urban and close quarters operations.

 
Variants

Design and Protection
The monocoque hull structure of Bastion HD has optimised body angles and a low silhouette for increased survivability. The high hardness armoured steel hull provides all-round protection against infantry rifles and machine guns (ballistic protection Level 1 to Level 3, NATO STANAG 4569) and artillery shell splinters. The vehicle provides protection against anti-personnel and anti-tank mines and side explosives. The Bastion uses V-hull technology, the purpose of this design is to increase vehicle and crew survivability by deflecting an upward directed blast from a landmine or Improvised Explosive Device away from the vehicle, while also presenting a sloped armor face. By presenting its armor at an angle, it increases the amount of material a ballistic projectile must pass through in order to penetrate the vehicle, and increases the chance of deflection. The anti-mine protection is Levels 2a / 2b NATO STANAG 4569. The infantrymen enter and leave the BASTION HD via a double door without a central pillar in the rear of the hull, which opens outwards. Three bullet-proof windows are mounted to each sides of the crew compartment, each with firing ports mounted in the lower part.
Propulsion
The Bastion HD is powered by 5.0-litre Turbo Diesel Intercooler engine that can give 215hp at 2,300 rpm. The engine compartment is located at the front of the vehicle, leaving the remainder clear for the crew and passengers. The Bastion HD has cruise speed of 110 km/h and a maximum range of 1,000 km.
Accessories
The crew and passenger survivability features include blast-resistant seats. In option the Bastion HD can be equipped with 24 v pre-equipment radio communication kit, front electric winch and central tyre inflation system. The Bastion HD is air transportable by C130, C160, and A400M transport aircraft and by CH47 helicopter.
