6th June 2017 - 15:53 GMT | by Richard Thomas in Tel Aviv

Showcasing the platform at the ISDEF exhibition and conference in Tel Aviv, Wharthman said that the Tiger’s use by Mexico’s police and security forces has demonstrated its capabilities in keeping occupants safe during attack.

The vehicle has been ‘designed to be intimidating’, Wharthman added, and citing one example of its use by Mexican police forces where a sniper fired multiple shots at areas usually considered to be weak points without effect.
