Indonesian Light Strike Vehicle will enter production in 2017

Prime contractor PT Jala Berikat Nusantara Perkasa announced at Indo Defence 2016 in Jakarta this week that the Indonesian Light Strike Vehicle (ILSV) will enter production in 2017, with an initial order for 20 having been placed by an undisclosed customer.

That was reported by www.monch.com.

Based on a Toyota Land Cruiser 4×4 chassis fitted with an all-welded steel monocoque hull, the example on show in Jakarta has an enclosed body, a different version from that first revealed here two years ago. A two man crew and six dismounts can be transported at road speeds up to 100 km/h; gross vehicle weight is around 2,750kg and a 175hp engine is fitted. Firing ports, relevant vision devices and provision for a roof-mounted 7.62mm MG are accompanied by individual blast-attenuating seats for all occupants.
