Okapi 6x6 mine protected vehicle (MPV)

The Okapi is a 6x6 mine protected vehicle (MPV) which can be configured for use in various roles: command and control vehicle, fire control post or specialised anti-mine equipment carrier. Its high mobility enables it to climb steep gradients and sizeable steps. Six large wheels take the vehicle effortlessly over rugged terrain, sand and mud.

The Okapi is powered by a 6 cylinder 4 stroke turbo charged engine and it has an approximate range of 400 km off road and 900 km on road. Occupants are protected against 7,62mm x 51mm NATO standard ball ammunition rounds fired at a distance of 30 m or further. These specifications can be upgraded. Occupants will also survive a detonation of 2 TM57 anti-tank landmines under the vehicle.
