The Supacat SPV400, the all-British, all-new contender from Supacat to meet the UK Ministry of Defence's Light Protected Patrol Vehicle (LPPV) requirement was, this week, subjected to a second round of blast tests as part of the vehicle's development programme. A number of blast tests were conducted to correlate development work and prove the upgrades and improvements incorporated into the SPV400 design since the first round of testing in December 2009. The results were very positive and consistent with expectations.
