Mezcal Security Vehicles successfully managed the test of new Tygra's (Armored Personnel carrier) range and ballistic capability with Armoring Protection level of B6+ (Almost similar to BR7).
We put Tygra through extreme off-road test drive in Sub-Saharan Africa. Not only it surpassed our expectations in the harshest terrain of Africa it even managed the range of more than 1000 Km on full tank fuel. The vehicle has successfully overcome numerous obstacles, comforted personnel admirably, maintained its stability and performance throughout our test.
Country's own military authorized personnel (undisclosed) conducted ballistic tests and the assault rifles used include AK-47 and Heckler & Koch G3. 5.56×45mm NATO specified bullets made their mark on the vehicle when fired from both close and long range, however, it never found a way inside. Bullets also damaged the bullet-resistant glass, but it never shattered it. The military personnel fired shots at the same glass-panel thrice yet it withstood the impacts and stopped the bullet from entering.
Please note that we can not disclose the exact test location as well as authorities and personnel involved due to security and privacy reasons. Do get in touch with us if you are in the market looking for a capable African terrain Friendly Armored Personnel Carrier.
