Armored Multi Purpose Vehicle (AMPV)
MEGA Defense is leading the development of the next generation of advanced Armored Multi Purpose Vehicle (AMPV). The AMPV is a state of the art in terms of weight class, protection category and mission-specific equipment ready for every conceivable operational scenario with greater versatility and efficiency. The new tactical wheeled armored vehicle highlights once again MEGA’s role as a high-tech enterprise for security and mobility.
The AMPV is designed and engineered in the USA with advanced cutting edge technology. It is a state-of-the-art highly mobile wheeled vehicle.
MEGA employs superior technologies to advance the light-duty vehicle profile, for missions that take military personnel over the harshest terrain and call for the quickest, most versatile response. It is designed for extreme maneuverability, reliability and greater crew protection and survivability.
The AMPV is based on 4×4 or 6×6 chassis. The modular design of the vehicle incorporates advanced technical and tactical characteristics. Its conventional layout houses engine in front, crew section in the middle and troop compartment at rear. Entry and exit for the occupants are provided through two doors at both sides and a rear door.
The optional Advance Electric Armored Vehicle system uses a modular arrangement to simplify the transmission of power to the wheels, which eliminates dependency on oil and dramatically reduces life-cycle costs.
