Force Protection Europe, a subsidiary of Force Protection Industries, has presented the Ocelot light protected patrol vehicle at this year’s Defence Systems & Equipment International event, held in London.

The Ocelot, which was designed for the UK’s light protected patrol vehicle (LPPV) programme, uses a special interchangeable automotive armoured spine system as a special-to-role pod that can be reconfigured for multiple missions.

The vehicle will be used primarily for patrol and fire support or as a protected logistics vehicle.

Force Protection Europe managing director David Hind said that a novel design had been adapted, which was a complete departure from the standard practice of basing mine-resistant vehicles on a standard chassis design.

“Ocelot exceeds the required mine protection level set for the UK MoD light protected patrol vehicle, while still meeting the targets for mobility, payload, size and gross vehicle weight,” Hind said.

Access to the vehicle is through large rear doors, two top hatches or if required an oversize commander’s door.

The vehicle uses a V-shape design, which prevents the running gear from intruding into the crew area making movement from front to rear easy, and also reducing the threat to the occupants in the event of an attack.

The Ocelot can be transported in a C-130 or under a Chinook.
