Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen armoured patrol concept

Mercedes-Benz has come with an armored patrol vehicle model that seems to be attempting a rejuvenation of its military roots. Dubbed the G-Wagen Light Armoured Patrol Vehicle 6.X Concept, it shows the actual possibilities of the G-Wagen platform, other than creating rolling roadblocks on city streets.

Running a high-torque general rail diesel engine, the 6.X is capable of 150 kph speeds while being capable to transport 1.3 tonnes of cargo.

The monocoque steel body provides ballistic safety and sits upon a compact enough wheelbase to give it excellent angles of approach and departure off-road.

The vehicle’s modular armour plate system allows damaged plates to be removed rapidly and be replaced with fresh or extra plates, and includes a mine deflector plate on the vehicles floor.

The variable lift front and rear coil-over air shock absorbers which are adaptable while driving, help lift the LAPV 6.X to 450 mm of ground clearance. An individual tyre inflation system is also intelligent to detect ground conditions and adjust accordingly for best traction.
