Armored personnel carrier APC      www.swat-trucks.info

Isbi Armor is aware that conventional armored VIP vehicles offer limited protection against IED's. Small strips of steel welded to pillars rip apart with blasts. Car hinges are not designed to withstand forces from explosions and implosions.

To better cope with blasts large sections of steel, fixed windows (70mm thick multi hit) and very strong doors (including hinges and mechanical locks) are required. A truck chassis that is built from start to support the weight of the armored body, is a must.

For the past five years we have built Armored Monocoque personnel carriers for all Colombian military (Army, Marines, Air Force) and Police. These vehicles have been constantly battle proven. They have been hit by gun fire, grenades and roadside bombs.

The vehicles have proven very reliable. The 3/8 th inch mil spec steel holds very well after years in the field. Our polyurethane exterior paint lasts for years. Very little maintenance is needed.

This 6 ton Monocoque Armored Personnel Carrier is made from US ballistic grade Astralloy steel cut by computer controlled CNC plasma and welded with MIG.


We mount our armored body on Ford 550 commercial chassis, it fits in a C-130.
