The military convoy of the new Spartan  armored personnel carriers for United Nations was spotted in Virginia on June 24.

Jeff Stern posted several photos to Facebook and added the description, “Can’t begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington, VA. Interesting times ahead!”

“Tactical Vehicles, with bullet proof glass? What ever could those be for, and why are UN vehicles here, in THIS country?!” Fernando Johnson questioned, while Vincent Sammons noted, “They are sealed against gas too.”

Spartan 4×4 Armored Personnel Carrier can be deployed for various missions, peace keeping operations and convoy escort and developed by STREIT Group.

The vehicle offers excellent protection against both ballistic and blast threats with crew compartment protection of CEN Level BR6 armor in various applications ranging from a battle field ambulance up to a fully armed direct fire vehicle.
