5 Tips for Choosing the Right Armored Security Vehicle for Your Operations

Organizations have the important responsibility of keeping their people safe and protected at all times, especially if they have crew members who are always on the road and in high-risk areas. Making sure they have sufficient coverage is a start; investing in the right vehicles is another way to guarantee their safety and security.

An tactical mobility vehicle is one of the best types of vehicles you can invest in if you want to be certain that teams performing crucial or sensitive work in high-risk or war-torn areas are safe while they are on the move.

People aboard this type of vehicle are protected from flying bullets, shrapnel, explosions and fire since these are specially designed to keep passengers safe and secure regardless of the external conditions.

Selecting the Ideal Armoured Security Vehicles to Invest In

Armored security vehicles require a substantial amount of investment. As such, you have to be sure that you will get your full money’s worth. You can do this by following these tips for purchasing an armored defense vehicle for your specific purposes:

1.      Consider the number of people the vehicle will transport

If you’re in need of a formidable security vehicle, determine how many people would need to be transported in it.

If at least six persons would be riding the vehicle regularly, excluding the driver, it would be best to invest in bulky types or designs of this vehicle. For less than six individuals, there are small- or medium-sized armored vehicles that would be more suitable, and they would be less expensive than their larger counterparts.

2.      Think about the level of protection the passengers will require

Armored security vehicles come with different types of armored window packages depending on their bulletproof rating. If you are looking for protection against commonly used handguns, the B4 rating is the ideal one to get. A B5 bulletproof rating, on the other hand, provides protection from AK-47s.

A B6 rating, which measures at around 40mm thick, will stop high-powered rifles such as an AR-15 and still leave the passengers unharmed on the inside. This specific type of bulletproof armor will stop armor-piercing rounds and ammunition from basically any weapon that one could put on their shoulder.

3.      Check its levels of mobility

The armored vehicle should have high levels of mobility so that it can be free fro
the limits of predictable and smooth routes. This ensures that people being deployed arrive safely at their destination every time. This is a crucial feature to look for if the vehicle will be used in areas with continuous combat taking place and where other threats are constantly present.

It is also important to ensure that the vehicle is prepared for optimal performance has multi-terrain capability so that it can be driven anywhere, in just about any extreme environment. It should also be able to maintain a high speed in case the situation calls for it.

4.      Think about the other features and amenities that may be needed

The following technological features may prove to be valuable for your missions using the armored security vehicle:

       Night or day vision capabilities
       Sensor System
       Situational Awareness System (SAS)
       Battlefield Management System (BMS)
       Display monitor
       Radio or intercom

A good example of a vehicle that possesses all these features (and more) is NIMR’s JAIS 6X6.

5.      Consider the design

Finally, armored security vehicles originally come in the manufacturer’s design. However, if you require special capabilities or features so you can perform your operations more effectively, you can have the vehicle customized so that it can represent suit your specifications. You can also have it painted to make it more discrete.

Most modern armored defense vehicle designs also have higher payload and power that can carry and operate system integration, C4I, sensors, tactical communications and other systems. 

A leading manufacturer of security and tactical vehicles can offer top-notch, state-of-the-art armored defense vehicles which can be customized to satisfy your particular requirements.

By dealing directly with a trusted name in vehicles that deliver maximum protection, tactical mobility and combat defense capabilities, you can be sure you will be investing in reliable and complete vehicles that will keep your crew safe and protected at all times.
