Citing information published on Internet, the BATT UMG 4x4 armored vehicles delivered to Ukraine would have been bought by an unnamed Eastern European country that ordered 100 of these vehicles for Ukraine.

On 11 October 2022, Operation EUNAVFOR Med Irini conducted an inspection of the merchant vessel MV Meerdijk off the coast of Libya. The ship was found to be transporting BATT UMG 4x4 armored vehicles for military use in Libya suspected to be in breach of the UN arms embargo.

The BATT UMG is built on a commercially available civilian platform which is then militarized to TAG’s highest standards for survivability in conflict zones. Based on a Ford F550, the vehicle is motorized with a V8 diesel turbocharged engine, coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Ford-based chassis gives the BATT UMG access to one of the largest OEM international parts distribution networks in the world making the BATT repairable in the most remote regions of the planet.

The hull of the BATT UMG provides blast protection of up to STANAG 4569 Level II a and b. Citing information from the manufacturer, it incorporates high blast protection in the small APC-sized class. A custom in-house axle design allows for an extra 2,750 kg of payload capacity which means our BATT can handle the weight of the added armoring requirement.

In terms of technical features, the BATT UMG has a curb weight of 10,100 kg with a length of 6.015 m, a width of 2.23 m, and a height of 2.41 m. It has a crew of two including a driver and commander seated at the front of the hull and the rear part of the vehicle can accommodate up to 8 military personnel. The vehicle is powered by a Turbo-charged V8 Diesel engine coupled to an automatic 6-speed transmission. It can run at a maximum road speed of 100 km/h.
