The IAG Jaws 4x4 APC comes equipped with a hidden weapon mounting system. The universal weapon mounting system can accommodate a variety of weapons with the ability to adjust its height and other features. It is safely secured inside the vehicle during transport and can be deployed when needed. The heavy-duty bearing allows for 360° degree manual rotation of the system by the gunner. An optional turret is available offering the same degree of protection as the rest of the vehicle. The rotation turret is equipped with view glasses and is fully compatible with the universal weapon mount system. A tear gas grenade launcher is also available upon special request.
|Design and protection|
The IAG JAWS 4x4 APC is based on a tried and tested commercial vehicle platform, the Toyota Land Cruiser 200 series, and provides great mobility with high ballistic and blast protection. The layout of the Jaws is conventional with the engine at the front, driver and commander in the first row, additional personnel and crew located in the rear, bringing the total number of personnel the vehicle can accommodate to 10. Optional blast attenuation seating provides additional protection to the crew in case of IEDs. This blast attenuation and mitigation technology minimize the shockwave and downward forces imposed on the occupants. A total number of five doors (2 in the front, 2 on the sides, and 1 in the rear) allow for easy and quick egress and digress of the crew. The Jaws has ballistic-resistant windows on all sides of the vehicle providing the same level of protection as the armored hull. Seven gun ports, 3 on each side and 1 in the rear allow the crew to return fire when under attack.
The standard Jaws armoring configuration provides protection up to CEN B6/NIJ III/STANAG Level I against caliber 7.62x51 Ball M80 and 5.56x45 SS109. With the available add-on armor kit, the Jaws protection can be increased to CEN B7/NIJ IV or STANAG Level II capable of stopping armor-pricing rounds (7.62x39AP and 7.62x51 AP). The design of the armor package has been optimized to offer enhanced blast protection against grenades, land mines, and IEDs.
