About the vehicles

The vehicles that have been developed fall into two main categories. There are vehicles that are lightly armored, and then stock vehicles that have had armor hidden in their body. The Light Armor Vehicles (LAVs) are popular among governments, whereas the vehicles that have the hidden armor are more popular for high level civilians or sometimes ambassadors. Although these vehicles use two different styles of armor, they both have been designed and tested to be able to stop a 7.62 mm armor-piercing round. The LAVs were also designed to be highly mobile, durable and carry a payload whether it is combat-ready troops or equipment. Their flagship model GURKHA is produced in three configurations, namely; MPV, LAPV and RPV and caters to law enforcement, police and military purposes.
