Armoured LC 300 passes certification tests in the UK, says Babcock.

In what it claimed as a ‘European first’, Babcock announced on 25 February that its armoured Toyota Land Cruiser 300 (LC 300) has successfully passed ballistic and blast trials and will be available for delivery in Q2 2022.

Babcock stated that it is the first European company to market a tested and certified solution for the LC300, with certification having been conducted by QinetiQ.

During ballistic and blast trials in February 2022, the LC 300 passed testing in compliance with various UK and international standards (PAS 300, VPAM BRV2009, VPAM ERV2010 and NATO STANAG 4569 AEP55 Vol 2).

The UK-made protection package is completely integrated with Toyota’s base vehicle, offering an entirely armoured passenger compartment without an internal bulkhead or secondary load space door, to maximise the internal dimensions.

Babcock has more than 20 years of experience in armouring Toyota sports utility vehicles (SUVs).
