MACS MPPV takes MacNeillies into the mainstream

MacNeillie : 07 September, 2007  (Company News)
DSEi: ExCel, London • 11-14 September 2007 • Stand 902
MacNeillies, the ascendant UK, West Midlands-based defence and homeland security vehicle specialist, bodybuilder and integrator, has entered the mainstream military vehicle market with its own design MACS (Military Armoured Carrier System) contender for the UK MoD MPPV (Medium Protected Patrol Vehicle) competition. It has also now teamed exclusively with QinetiQ to bid jointly for the potential requirement for around 180 of the new MPPV units for the British Army. In addition, the company is involved with discussions about the new vehicle's potential suitability for other applications in a number of world markets.

The MACS concept has been developed to be adaptable for a number of specifications, configurations, protection levels, payloads - and gross weights from 9.5 14 tonnes. MacNeillie engineers have designed, built and fully integrated a versatile monocoque armoured body shell, with a standard COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) high mobility 4x4 powertrain, running gear and componentry. The base level vehicle can be deployed as a protected personnel carrier or progressively up-armoured and up-rated to provide higher levels of protection and payload capacity if required. The design is also capable of accommodating a wide range of equipment, both internally and externally and other variants of the basic platform will follow.
