HEC APC - Armoured Personnel Carrier

MPV and Modular Pallet System

MPV and Modular Pallet System HEC designed a 4x4 10 ton mine-resistant and armoured vehicle with a range of modular pallets for non-combat operations.HEC has made provisions for more practical fixtures relating to the nature of HD and other humanitarian tasks without compromising the outstanding performance, durability and protection. The HEC-APC features a high-roof cab and matching high roof on the pallets, it has two doors on the side of the cab instead of one only in the back, a cab pressurization system incorporated into the heating&cooling pack and comes with state-of-the-art communication kits.

The wide range of extra security features include dual electrical systems and on-board fire suppression. Overall visibility under all conditions is vastly improved. For special applications, a long-wheel-base version is available. HEC designed special modules for many applications, including OPS Cube, Ambulance Cube, Fire Suppression Pallet etc. A couple of units are operational in Angola since 2003.
