In order to meet changing operational needs, the Brazilian Military Police have ordered six “mission ready” high performance APCs. Designed to carry 24 policemen plus crew, the Plasan APCs feature roof and side armor to STANAG 3 standards, under-floor protection, and new operational features. The package is worth more than $9 million USD.

The APC solution reflects Plasan’s total in-house design, production and integration capability. It uses commercial 4x4 vehicles, which have been transformed from the chassis up with detection and protection systems to provide 6 x 6 performance at a fraction of the cost

The vehicles feature exceptional maneuverability, turning radius and flexibility on most types of terrain.

The APCs include NBC solutions, interior fire suppression systems, non-lethal weapon systems, IR night vision and power management for mission sustainability.

A hydraulically operated rear door simplifies access while side doors provide added safety to crew and troops. A large front sled can remove obstacles and clear the road.

“We are delighted that the Military Police in Brazil chose our solution for the CHOQUE DA PMESP project. This demonstrates Plasan’s ability to customize platforms to meet the challenges of tomorrow. We can take most existing solutions, and thanks to our unique experience as well as our in-house engineering, design and testing, deliver a mission-ready solution at a fraction of the price of alternative platforms – in the most aggressive time frames,“ stated Dani Ziv, CEO of Plasan.

“We bring this same capability to existing and new platforms, helping armies, police forces, and security organizations worldwide meet changing defense and security scenarios.”

The vehicles are due to be delivered before the end of 2014.
