Canadian company Roshel Defence Solutions has started serial production of its multi-purpose Senator armoured personnel carrier (APC).
Senator APCs are being manufactured at the company’s production facility in Toronto, Canada, following testing.
The new armoured platform is a tactical, highly mobile multi-purpose transport vehicle that has been designed to support peacekeeping and law enforcement operations.
Roshel Defence Solutions CEO Roman Shimonov said: “With our new series of vehicles, we are continuously focusing on providing our clients with future-proof solutions by further development of both hardware and software.”
Featuring high manoeuvrability and enhanced off-road capabilities, the Senator APC is capable of successfully accomplishing several missions in urban and cross-country terrain.
In addition, the vehicle provides various interchangeable function modules such as medical evacuation, anti-riot, command and control, explosive ordnance disposal, and reconnaissance.
The Senator APC platform can also be deployed to provide ballistic and mine protection for up to CEN B7 / STANAG 4569 Level II.
In addition, the carrier provides advanced integration capabilities that allow the vehicle to be equipped with comprehensive security measures such as observation and surveillance, thermal and infrared imaging, as well as two-way communications with command control centres.
Other security systems are featured for night vision, fire source detection, laser range finder, remote control weapons and chemical protection.
Roshel’s base model includes perimeter gunports, escape hatches, gas extraction system, military-grade mine protected seats, and three-point military-grade seatbelts.
The company intends to roll out the first batch of the Senator vehicles in the third quarter of this year.
