Pakistan’s Cavalier Group has unveiled an updated version of the Hamza 6×6  armoured vehicle at the BIDEC 2017, Bahrain International Defense Exhibition and Conference in Manama.

The Hamza is a new armoured vehicle in the category of MRAP developed by the Pakistani Company Cavalier Group to respond to the new needs of the Pakistani army. The Hamza 6×6 appears to be a variant of the Hamza 8×8 MCV, which was revealed at Pakistan’s biennially-held defence exhibition IDEAS in November 2016. Cavalier positioned the Hamza 8×8 as a multi-mission solution with under-chassis blast protection of STANAG 4569 Level-4B. That was reported by quwa.org.

The HAMZA 6×6 has weight of around to 22 tons with a payload capacity of 7 tons maximum. The vehicle is motorized with a Cummins ISM 500 6 cylinders Turbo Charged and Intercooled diesel engine coupled to an Allison 6 speed automatic transmission.

The HAMZA vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 110 km with a maximum cruising range of 500 km.
