31st August 2010 - 14:03 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Textron Marine & Land Systems today announced it has been selected by the Government of Canada, through the Solicitation of Interest and Qualification process, to participate in the competition to be selected to submit a proposal to provide its Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle (TAPV).

Textron Marine & Land Systems plans to offer a 4x4 wheeled armored vehicle specifically engineered and designed to provide survivability, mobility and versatility in full spectrum operations over the toughest of landscapes. The comprehensive, modern design is aimed at shielding troops from roadside bombs and blasts while providing large power reserves for future electronics enhancements with an ergonomically designed interior for optimum comfort and payload. The vehicle has been tested extensively to confirm ballistic, mine blast, mobility and reliability levels that meet or exceed the Canadian TAPV requirements.

"Our team has been working diligently to develop and test this modern combat vehicle for the Canadian military to achieve the highest possible level of crew protection while maintaining the mobility and reliability of our combat-proven Armored Security Vehicle," said Textron Marine & Land Systems General Manager Tom Walmsley. "We are offering the Canadian military the ultimate balance of survivability, mobility and lethality in a modern, ergonomically designed platform. It is a cost effective game-changing solution for Canada's national security requirements for the next 25 years."
