The SVI company has unveiled its new armoured vehicles during the Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) exhibition.

South Africa’s company took the opportunity at this year’s AAD 2018 exhibition to showcase its latest armoured vehicles, included the new MAX 4×4 armoured personnel carrier.

The MAX is an 8 seater (driver and seven passengers with a payload capacity of 3000 kg) armoured personnel carrier (APC). It is designed to be adaptable to many different roles depending on customer requirements, from purely a transporter of personnel, to weapons platform (turret mounted), to law enforcement, peacekeeping or even configured into a battlefield ambulance.

The MAX incorporates specially designed features starting from the hull which can withstand blast levels normally associated with much larger far more expensive vehicle (Ballistic protection – STANAG1 with optional upgrade, Blast protection – STANAG 4569 AEP 5 level 3A/3B).

The vehicle has 5 doors, with the rear main door automatically operated from the driver’s seat to facilitate speed entry, fast recovery of wounded patients, and speedy exit from hostile situations. MAX can also be adapted to a vehicle recovery role, where an extra rear axle is built in resulting in the MAX becoming a 6×6 vehicle with a flat back equipped with recovery and towing adaptations.

MAX is powered by a trusty efficient, yet powerful and reliable Cummins 6.7 litre turbocharged diesel engine, driving through a specially built 6 speed Allison Automatic Gearbox, sent to Axletech front and rear axles, and good for 110km/h. Modern CAN bus electrical system provides a digital dashboard display to the driver, while being more reliable and efficient to maintain and upgrade when necessary.
