Oshkosh Defense will unveil a new variant of its SandCat protected vehicle at EUROSATORY 2010. To date, SandCat vehicles have been sold to Sweden, Bulgaria, Canada and Israel.

The new variant called SandCat M-LPV (Mine-Resistant Light Patrol Vehicle) is a light patrol vehicle designed to protect users from mine attacks and improvised explosive devices, as well as standard ammunition threats and armor-piercing bullets, while offering superior off-road performance. Improved performance is achieved by utilizing advanced composite ceramic armor materials and a blast-management system for the protective cabin, while optimizing the cabin’s overall size and structure, with a growth capability against new and emerging threats. The vehicle seats four and has an option for two more.

Along the new vehicle, the U.S. company will showcase as well as its MRAP All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV), MTVR LHS (Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement Load Handling System) 8×8 tactical  logistic truck and a variant of its FMTV (Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle) tactical truck.
