INKAS introduces right-hand drive Sentry APC
INKAS has introduced a right-hand drive version of its Sentry armoured personnel carrier (APC), the company announced on 26 April.
The Sentry APC is capable of accommodating eight to ten personnel. The weight distribution of both the left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive versions are specifically engineered to advance manoeuvrability and off-road performance while maintaining dual protective layers offering both ballistic and blast protection. The APC offers modular hook-ups for various external technologies such as air filtration systems, fire source detection and advanced optics.
The APC is armoured up to CEN 1063 BR7 ballistic standards, protecting it from 7.62×51 armour piercing ammunition as well as blasts from underneath even in extreme climate conditions and harsh terrains.
The vehicle features perimeter gunports, roof-mounted turret and an 18,000lb electric winch. It also has advanced door lock mechanisms, a wide field of view from the driver cabin and an electronic night vision system. Further enhancements are optional, but include removable front-mounted plow for obstacle clearance, external view cameras providing 360 degree field of view, sirens/PA systems, warning devices, crowd control features, emergency lights and custom armouring options.
The INKAS Sentry APC can be customised for various tactical missions including SAR and medical evacuation, personnel and private transportation, C2 operations and surveillance.
