US company Protected Vehicles has unveiled a lightweight prototype Humvee replacement.

The Protector weighs 7t, has a top speed of 70mph and a standard ring-mount for remote weapons stations.

The vehicle offers protection from both improvised explosive devices and explosively formed penetrators, according to the company.

It will undergo design and blast-testing in the next few months.

The Protector may be entered into the US Army’s effort to find the next-generation Humvee; the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle competition.
