Successful blast testing of troop transport armoured vehicle

Lenco Armored Vehicles/Lenco Industries : 29 December, 2014  (Company News)
Lenco Industries announces successful underbody and side blast testing of the BEAR 17-man Troop Transport Armored Vehicle designed for Military and Government personnel and International Security Forces operating in hostile environments around the world.

The blast-resistant BEAR combines Lenco’s Mil-Spec steel armour construction with an additional composite B-Kit and engineering changes designed to deflect blast pressure. Modelled after traditional MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles, the BEAR’s V-Hull construction and armour package can withstand direct underbody blast and close proximity mortar round attacks. Testing was conducted at the US Army’s Aberdeen Test Center at Aberdeen Proving Grounds. 
 
The blast-resistant MRAP BEAR is currently fielded overseas in hostile regions by US Government Convoy teams and Diplomatic Security details. In addition to the vehicle’s armour protection, key survivability features include blast seats, full fire suppression capabilities and run-flat tyres. A variety of communications and intelligence sensors are also available based on customer requirements.
 
“Improvised explosive devices continue to be one of the most pressing concerns for military operatives and overseas diplomatic transport,” explains Lenco Vice President, Len Light.
