The Fortress Mk 1 is an up-armored Bastion, with a more powerful engine developing 340 hp and fitted with an independent suspension to improve its mobility. The vehicle is available in two variants: APC and cargo. The Fortress has a Level 2 STANAG 4569 ballistic and mine protection.

The Fortress MK1 is a 13.5-tonne armored combat vehicle.

The Bastion, which is based on the VLRA 2, is in operation. The semi-open-topped Patsas version of the vehicle, which was developed with a Special Forces unit, has been marketed successfully.

The “High Mobility” Bastion APC has a number of new advantages: a running gear system with independent suspension is driven by a 320 hp engine generating a torque of 1200 Nm at 1200 rpm.
