AchleitnerAchleitner has built a strong international reputation for protected vehicles. Our expertise is highly regarded among the defence and security industry for military, security or special operations.

Maintaining a full in-house R&D centre, Achleitner has developed many innovative products for specialised requirements, including the protected Survivor 4×4 family and Mantra 4×4 troop carrier.

Achleitner also chose to diversify its offer into security vehicles, developing interior protection solutions for Toyota Land Cruiser 200 (VR7 and VR9 protection) and Mercedes Sprinter. Thanks to our high flexibility and fast decision-making process, we can adapt to any project submitted to us.


Achleitner developed a family of protected vehicles specifically designed for the use of military and special police forces. Adopted by active police special forces in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the Survivor line offers user protection and mobility.

PMV SURVIVOR II: protected mission vehicle with modular protection kit and highest protection against ballistic threats, mines and IED.
HMV SURVIVOR I: high mobility vehicle with high protection to meet nowadays and future police, military and paramilitary forces requirements.
RCV SURVIVOR: reconnaissance and command vehicle with up to 8t (GVW), permanent four wheel drive and a lot more.
MANTRA 4x4 (troop carrier): high mobility multipurpose light tactical vehicle
MANTRA 4x4 (e.g. troop carrier, command or communication vehicle, carrier platform, ambulance): tire inflation system
MMV SURVIVOR: militarized mission vehicle for special purpose as a ideal platform for various mission kits and systems integration
Achleitner GESON: rugged, high mobility militarized vehicle as a ideal platform for various mission kits and systems integration.
ASV SURVIVOR: armored security vehicle to meet present and future police and VIP forces requirements.
Achleitner Land Cruiser 200: the special protection vehicle for civil application according to VPAM standards.
Achleitner Shield: interior protected vehicle that offers a secure, versatile and discreet mean of protected transport.

The Achleitner Survivor line is composed of four vehicles:

The Achleitner Security Vehicle is specifically designed for VIP transport, valuables transfer or police forces transport. It is based on a Land Cruiser 200 with exterior protection that we have adapted.


Achleitner developed two militarised vehicles for missions not requiring ballistic or mine protection: GESON and MMV, which are both rugged cross-country 4WD vehicles.

GESON 4×4:

  • GVW: 3.5t
  • Troop capacity: 2+6 / 5+4

The GESON 4×4 is a pick-up adaptable in various configurations (single or double cabin, van type, cargo body, shelter body or even chassis). It has proven its efficiency as a border patrol vehicle for armies and police forces in Europe, especially in hard mountain conditions. It is also adaptable as a communication / liaison vehicle or troop transporter due to its high-volume capacity.

MMV 4×4:

  • GVW: 3.5t
  • Troop capacity: Five

The MMV 4×4 is a rugged 4×4 vehicle adapted to any hostile environment. At ease in snow, mud, sand, rocks, it can overtake any conditions with agility. It is an ideal platform for various mission kits and system integrations.


The MANTRA 4×4 is a logistical tactical vehicle built to provide outstanding mobility and performance. The MANTRA 4×4 uses state-of-the-art technology to guarantee the highest level of safety, reliability and quality. Achleitner has designed a vehicle with permanent 4WD technology and a variety of platform bodies for adverse conditions.

The MANTRA 4×4 is available in a range of sizes and configurations such as:

  • Troop carrier: available with tailor-made bodies on a double or single-cab chassis or as a bus with a seating arrangement for up to 21 people, in miscellaneous versions and equipment
  • Command or communication vehicle: available with tailor-made bodies on different cab versions or as a van with communication, radio-table and navigational unit, featuring an external power supply
  • Carrier platform: platform with sliding canvas, with a palletised load system (PLS) loading capacity handling system and a universal platform for fast and simple handling
  • Ambulance: as a van or box body with up to four extractable latches and various medical equipment


In-house developed security vehicle Achleitner Land Cruiser 200 has proved its adaptability to all terrains over the past 20 years. With only 5.4t capacity, it provides a great protection-to-weight ratio thanks to its modular design.

The vehicle is certified according to the current VPAM guidelines against ballistics and explosives in-class BRV-2009-ERV-2010 VR7 and VR9. Its appearance is substantially unchanged from the OEM production model by using an internal protection solution, allowing missions for security agencies without attracting attention.

The Achleitner Land Cruiser 200 is available in different versions along with various supplementary equipment, including fuel tank protection, run flat systems and an intercom system.


Available as a passenger carrier, in cargo, pick up and ambulance configuration, the Achleitner Shield offers a secure, versatile and discreet means of protected transport.

Many useful features and equipment are available for this fully developed protected vehicle. In the past ten years, it became a popular low-profile vehicle for special police forces around the world.


Due to our extensive experience and various developments over recent years, Achleitner is able to offer a rolling chassis for many different purposes and users.

Three types are available:

Type I: GVW = 4.5t – 6t Payload: up to 3,500kg Power: 205 PS
Type II: GVW = 8.5t – 12t Payload: up to 7,500kg Power: 245 – 285 PS
