Armoured personnel carrier

New from the US firm The Armored Group (TAG) is their Ballistic Armored Tactical Transport (BATT).

The BATT vehicles offer custom rear door design with 90-degree lockout providing add protection and shooting space with added entry/deployment capabilities.

The Armored Group’s BATT offers more shocks, tires and rims making it adaptable for rural and urban use in a variety of weather and terrains. The BATT vehicles are able to protect against NIJ IV/B7 Level threats, including but not limited to the .30.06 AP Round, .50 Caliber Ball Round ammunition and blast-type threats.

Features include:

Curved Side Walls have been bent/contoured to encompass officers in full tactical gear.

· 141-inch Wheelbase that is not cut down, but built to fit the existing OEM platform.

· Flip-Up Rescue Seat is a custom designed passenger seat that flips up out of the way to allow officer entry/exit through the passenger side front door. This allows officers the ability to deploy out the side of the BATT, instead of limiting them to the rear of the unit. This feature lets the team keep maximum seating, does not require cutting more doors in the unit and is a standard feature on BATT and BATT S AP vehicles.

· Flip-Out Running Boards adds 6-inches of extra footing when deployed providing more stable and safe footing and enables teams to enter/exit a scenario quickly. The flip board folds on top of itself when not needed, and stays within the width of the widest part of the vehicle.

· Rear Deployment:

o Rear double-drop step and officer platform reducing chance of injury.

o When rear doors are locked out at 90-degrees, an officer can be fully covered between the doors on the step, allowing the BATT to extend its armour to protect more personnel.

Robert Pazderka, president and founder of The Armored Group, said: “The BATT has become a critical solution to military agencies because of its level of protection, deployment, operational capabilities, versatility and size. Because the BATT family of products do not require frame shortening, the vehicles are stronger than the competitors’, thereby reducing the risk of possible failures. The Armored Group is an approved supplier of the US military and are made at facilities with employees cleared by the US Government and Secret Service adding even another level of security.”

For agencies that require larger vehicles, The Armored Group offers the BATT XL, which has the ability to carry over 15 fully geared officers. Also available is the BATT S NIJ III Edition which was designed for departments requiring rifle round armour.

TAG also has a non-armoured specialty division that builds units for warrants/raids (NTAO Tested and Recommended RDV), Hostage Negotiators, EOD, Command Centers, Crime Scene, and equipment trucks.
