Plasan introduces latest model of SandCat 4×4 armoured vehicle at Eurosatory 2016

Plasan introduces latest model of SandCat 4×4 armoured vehicle at the world’s largest international land and airland defence and security exhibition – Eurosatory 2016.

At Eurosatory, Plasan will present the newest, most advanced SandCat model. It is designed for the most challenging missions and is equipped with an observation system and thermal cameras for full situational awareness.

As battlefields and home land security (HLS) situations today pose more challenges, SandCat addresses these challenges for diverse operational needs and missions, as it is designed to carry a spectrum of different payloads, making it fully operational in a multitude of today’s most challenging scenarios, threats or other rapidly evolving situations supporting a wide range of missions including: law enforcement, special forces, peacekeeping, homeland security, border patrol and armed conflict.



The Sand Cat (also Plasan Caracal) is a composite armored vehicle designed by Plasan of Israel. It is based on a commercial Ford F-Series chassis.

The SandCat’s advanced lightweight composite armor provides up to STANAG Level 3 protection without adding to the vehicle’s GVW or compromising its outstanding performance…

The Sand Cat was first shown publicly as the Caracal at the AUSA show in October 2005. It has since been presented at various shows including the 2005 Milipol law enforcement show in Paris, the 2006 Mid-America Trucking Show, and 2006 Eurosatory under the name “Sand Cat”.

Plasan is a trusted partner for armor and survivability solutions that allow customers to win military and defense contracts.

Few, if any, armor providers can match Plasan’s history of designing more than 150 armored hulls and delivering more than 30,000 armor solutions to armed forces and security organizations worldwide.
