Arotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ARTX) today unveiled at the Annual Meeting of the association of the US Army (AUSA) its new Light Protected Vehicle — the Tiger. Based on a commercial off-the-shelf Dodge RAM 5500 platform, the MDT Tiger is a cost effective, highly armored Light Protected All Terrain Vehicle for a crew of 6-9.

The Tiger is mine and blast protected, with various add-on armor options, including reactive armor. Its 5 doors and a roof hatch offer easy loading and unloading of soldiers and equipment. The wide and spacious cabin, with its large payload capacity can be tailored to many missions.

A powerful Cummins 350 HP diesel engine, large wheels, and a 127" wheel base offer exceptional all terrain capabilities. The advanced suspension system ensures a comfortable ride for the crew. The 8.8 ton GVWR allows — with a standard armor package — for a 1.5 ton payload, or 6 passengers plus 900 kg of equipment. The add-on armor panels can be removed, repaired, replaced or upgraded. An optional upgrade to a 10.4 ton GVW allows for an improved armor suite, including reactive armor defeating RPG rockets and EFP charges.

The MDT Tiger LPV was designed to be cost effective. The COTS Dodge platform ensures widespread support and cost effective maintenance. The unique encapsulated cabin allows easy access to all components. The capsule can easily be removed and re-mounted, allowing its installation on a new platform, increasing its life and ensuring low life cycle cost.

The spacious cabin, with a flat floor throughout and vertical walls, allows for various seating and equipment mission-dependent arrangements. The front row has three-in-a-row seats for driver, navigator and commander. In the rear, 3, 4 or 5 passengers can ride facing forward. The rear cabin can also accommodate 6 passengers in two side-facing rows. A 2 or 4 liter MedVac option is also available.

Windows on all 4 sides allow for improved situation awareness. Optional gun-ports on all 4 directions allow for accurate small arms operation. A roof mounted remote controlled weapon station, or man-operated turret are optional.

"The Tiger expands our reach into the military vehicle market," said Robert Ehrlich, Arotech’s Chairman and CEO. "With the new Tiger Tiger , the well established David and the recently announced Gideon, we now offer military armored vehicles ranging from 1.5 to 10.5 tons."

It’s not even a bit subtle on its purpose. It looks like a mache of box, and just like a box it actually feels safe to be stored inside.

No doubt that it is a military vehicle! Well, it is absolutely so awesome with this armored gear, and I love the massive appearance which is truly suited to its name. However, I’m sure this one will cost too pricey!

It is an armored car right? Well, I’m confused with the platform of it and it seems too huge for a military vehicle, but I’m still impressed with one. smiley I wonder if what will be the interior of it will look like.

What you mean to say is it fits for a war. You really specify the place huh. However, I can say that it is a powerful car and can catch a lot of bullets without any bruises. Hopefully, our government can also create this kind of vehicle.

This would be suited in middle east crisis like iraq and aftghanistan. Looks very tough APC capable of taking a lot of punishments from blast, bullets and mother nature.
