Plasan will be presenting its new type of SandCat Stormer designed for police and counter-terrorism operations at the MILIPOL event in Paris, France, between 21-24 November.
As a response to the growing domestic terror and violence seen over recent years, Plasan is launching the ultimate anti-terror and riot-control vehicle, and, for the first time, a RHD (right-hand drive) version is offered for RHD countries.
The new RHD SandCat Stormer is equipped with the all-new SCAT system to address low-intensity conflict violence with a variety of non-lethal means, providing precise and proportionate crowd control, preventing civilian casualties, and with no risk to the system operators.
SCAT is a roof-mounted non-lethal RCWS with day and night imaging, command and control system, light dazzler, multi-shot 40mm smoke/gas grenade launcher, long-range acoustic device, and optional rifle.
The SandCat is an advanced intelligent mission vehicle by utilising Plasan’s built-in DAPH (Data And Power Hub), enabling faster, smarter and more effective systems integration, power up, power controlling and monitoring.
The SandCat offers unique optimization between protection, payload, and cost by using composite materials to defeat threats once only encountered in war zones but now seen in attacks on city streets. This includes B6/B7 protection + AK47 7.62×39 AP + Dragunov 7.62×54 AP, a floor protected against two DM51 hand grenades, and more.
Plasan SandCat Stormer is the lightest tactical armoured vehicle providing such a high protection level. It is designed to serve in various mission profiles requiring a highly manoeuvrable and protected vehicle, such as urban law enforcement, peacekeeping, homeland security and border patrol.
It has a low cost of ownership by using a reliable commercial Ford F550 Super Duty chassis with a powerful engine and four-wheel-drive and staying safely within the Ford certified GVW.
The armoured cabin comfortably accommodates up to 10 passengers with great attention to the design and ergonomics to allow the team to fulfil their missions safely.
The Plasan SandCat Stormer truly is the ultimate armoured SUV.
