Paris: Monday 16th June 2014 STREIT Group
When a leading armored vehicle manufacturer’s records show that not a single fatality has ever resulted from confrontations involving its products, buyers are sure to take a particular interest in anything new it brings to the market.
Eurosatory is renowned as the number one platform for defense product launches which makes it the perfect launch pad for STREIT’s newest models.
STREIT’s new releases at the show include: Varan 6x6 is an APC (Armored Personnel Carrier) designed to give unrivalled protection against IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), landmines, sideblasts and RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade) attacks. Another of its APCs is the Warrior, offered with an integrated anti-tank guided missile system and protection against threats such as ballistic assaults, mines and grenades.
The STREIT Typhoon 6x6 is an MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle, developed and built to withstand attacks, including ballistic arms fire, mines and IEDs. Also on show is the bomb disposal variant of STREIT’s Shrek MRAP range, which features an extendable mine or IED arm as well as excellent blast and ballistic protection.
Along with these newcomers STREIT will showcase Scorpion APC, which has been tested and certified to STANAG3 blast protection standard and is ready for STANAG4 testing. This vehicle will be available to experience on the live demonstration track.
In addition to their practical and life-saving features and benefits, each product offers a major affordability advantage, as STREIT Chief Executive Guerman Goutorov explains: “We are passionate about creating high-quality, innovative and dynamic vehicles, but our other top priority is to make them cost-effective. Our aim is to bring high standards of protection within the reach of more people, so their safety is not limited by budgets.”
He adds: “We are able to do this thanks to the efficient operation of our 12 production facilities around the globe, and the dedication and skill of more than 300 craftsmen who share our philosophy.”
