The Bright Arrow facilitates rapid detection, engagement and overmatch of threats typically encountered during military missions utilizing its sensors suit and remote fire capability. In case of attacks by an anti-tank threats, the system instantly engages the threat, employs soft or hard kill countermeasures and counter attack with its stabilized machine gun for immediate, effective and accurate counter fire. The turret is fitted with Day/Night panoramic vision with optional image processing capabilities.

The CombatGuard is built based on a monocoque capsule which provides all around ballistic protection against firing of small arms AP (Armour Piercing) rounds, IED (Improvised Explosive Device) and EFP (Explosive Formed Projectile). Locating the wheels on the capsule’s sides also enhances the capsule’s protection. The vehicle can carry a total of 6 or 8 soldiers including driver and commander. Each side of the vehicle is equipped with two doors.

The vehicle has a ground clearance of 70 cm, can ford water obstacles up to 1.5 m and is able to negotiate gradients of 70%, a 35% side slope, and an approach/departure angle of 90°. 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.
