New EOD vehicle to enter service

21st June 2012 - 16:37 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marshall Land Systems has announced that a fully integrated mobile Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) vehicle with an armoured shelter is about to enter service with an unnamed European customer following delivery from MAN Truck and Bus, and Marshall Land Systems.

The company said it has ‘exploited its integration and manufacturing skills to provide an armoured shelter for EOD teams, together with all their equipment, to deploy and operate from’.

The armoured unit provides kinetic ballistic and blast protection to STANAG Level 1 and is mounted on an armoured cab version of the MAN HX60, 6 tonne support vehicle. Storage facilities for the suite of EOD equipment including bomb disposal robot, robot control station, battery charging facilities and an armoured box for sensitive materials and equipment are integrated into the shelter.

The vehicle is equipped with an integral tail-lift to enable rapid deployment and recovery of the EOD robot and is fitted with a winch. A 4.8 kVA on-board diesel generator provides standalone power so the vehicle can operate autonomously.
