2010 Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X Concept news, pictures, and information
Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X ConceptMercedes-Benz is setting the new standard in armoured patrol vehicles showing the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle 6.X CONCEPT at the recent EÚROSATORY 2010 event.
Improving on its cousin, the LAPV 5.4, the new Mercedes-Benz LAPV 6.X Concept now boasts greater agility, higher protection and a greater payload capacity. Weight has been minimised to increase agility while still not compromising on protection and payload capacity.
Running a high torque common rail diesel engine, the 6.X is capable of 150km/h speeds while being able to transport 1.3 tonnes of cargo wîth its impressive payload.
The monocoque full steel body provides ballistic protection and sits upon a compact 2850mm wheelbase. This gives an astounding angle of approach / departure of 50?/ 45? for increased mobility and off road performance.
The vehicle's modular armour plate system allows damaged plates to be removed quickly and be replaced wîth new or extra plates, and includes a mine deflector plate on the vehicles floor.
Based on the G-Class's proven axles, the LAPV 6.X ensures thrilling off-road capabilities and low drive train wear. An individual tyre inflation system is also able to detect ground conditions and adjust accordingly for best traction.
Mercedes-Benz in collaboration wîth EADS, a leading supplier of military technology brings a host of innovative high performance systems to the LAPV 6.X.
• EADS vehicle data recorder system to automatically document vital mission data such as position, data link and vehicle usage status.
• EADS integrated communication system for ÚHF or VHF bands including a mobile Tetrapol base station for radio coverage out of a range of other networks
• EADS integrated mobile command, control and information system for seamless relay of commands through all levels.
• EADS jamming system for greater security, flexibility and scalability.
With the LAPV 6.X Concept, Mercedes-Benz has created the ultimate 'go anywhere' vehicle.Source - Mercedes-Benz
