The Milkor company is planning to unveil a new 4×4 armoured vehicle during the this year’s Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) exhibition.

The new Milkor 4×4 multirole armoured vehicle has a V-shape hull for better mine protection and B7 ballistic protection. This vehicle is suitable for defence forces, police, and security forces as an armoured personnel carrier, ambulance, anti-riot vehicle as well as command vehicle with up to 8+2 passenger capacity.

The Milkor 4×4 is immediately recognizable for its monocoque hull bereft of side doors. To enter the vehicle, crew and passengers climb a hydraulic ramp at the back that comes with folding steps. The cab offers seating for the driver and co-driver and there’s room enough for eight dismounts behind them.

According to Milkor, its armored truck has B7 protection, making it resistant against gunfire from battle rifles and light machine guns. Either side of the hull have stowage bins that act as blast or blow up panels for deflecting the shock waves caused by explosions. Milkor can even install grills on the truck’s windows to deflect large projectiles. A novel feature on the Milkor 4×4 are a row of lamps above the monobloc windshield for extra illumination in the dark.

The Milkor 4×4’s gross weight totals 15 tons fully loaded although it’s able to deploy at just nine tons light. The preferred engine type is left to the end user’s specifications, although Milkor used an Iveco turbo diesel when putting the truck through its paces.

Top speed is a decent 110 kilometers per hour and maximum range is 1,000 km on a full tank. The Milkor 4×4 isn’t amphibious and is meant for navigating outdoor terrain but its height allows it to easily cross small bodies of water.
