Jamaica adds six more Bushmasters

16th June 2020 - 13:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) has spent about €7 million ($7.93 million) on buying six more Bushmaster 4x4 protected vehicles from Thales, to add to its 12 in-service vehicles delivered in 2015 and 2016.

‘The enhanced fleet of 18 vehicles allows the JDF to field larger operations in support of the Jamaican Constabulary Force’s (JCF’s) crime fighting efforts across the country,’ Thales announced on 16 June.

New features of the latest vehicles (three troop carriers and three ambulance variants) include fully integrated auxiliary power units that deliver power and supplementary air conditioning when the engine is turned off. This allows static vehicles to maintain a comfortable temperature in the hot Jamaican climate.
