Oshkosh Defence will showcase their vehicle armouring capabilities at International Armoured Vehicles taking place on the 1st to the 5th February, at the ExCel Centre, London. As calls across the globe for improved equipment to be provided to troops in Afghanistan, Oshkosh have received significant praise from the U.S Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, who claims that Oshkosh’s rapid build up of a new class of military vehicles designed for specifically for Afghanistan, is one of the most remarkable efforts in the defence industry since World War II.With recorded statistics indicating that eight American troops have died in combat through attacks on armoured military vehicles, and forty more wounded, there is the sense of a growing need to hasten global efforts to upgrade armoured vehicle military capabilities. Exhibiting their new SandCat, the high-speed, highly-protected, highly-manoeuvrable vehicle can be specifically configured to fulfil a variety of roles in any type of mission. The SandCat is tailored to meet operational environments, giving the perfect balance of mission performance, protection and payload to meet rigorous demands.
