New protection for the military

A company called Force Protection headquartered near Charleston, South Carolina has been contracted with supplying the military with the next generation of armored trop transport vehicles.

The Cougar is a family of medium mine-protected vehicles which can be supplied in 4X4 or 6X6 layout. It can be configured for a wide range of tasks including troop carrying (up to 14 in the 6X6), EOD (4 troops and a large EOD robot in the 4X4), command and control, artillery prime mover, recovery and ambulance duty. Cougar is in production.

The Buffalo is the most advanced mine resistant vehicle in the world. It can be configured for multiple missions and is specifically designed to be repaired in the field. Cutting-edge technology combined with the best American automotive components give this vehicle the maximum visibility, load carrying capacity, interior space and parts availability of any vehicle in its class.

Both of these vehicles dwarf the Humvee in both size and protection and are both designed with advanced ballistic- and mine-protection as a key component. It’s nice to see some new armor being developed and implemented to help protect out fighting men and woman in our armed forces!
