The Vehicle Engineering sales team choose Eurosatory 2018, one of Europe’s largest defence and security expositions, to launch their latest VPAM compliant vehicle; the Toyota Land Cruiser 150 Prado.

Marc Emery, Business Development Manager, described the benefits of adding another compliant tested armour solution to the Babcock range; “When we came to develop our latest armour solution Prado immediately stood out as the ideal candidate to complement our existing Land Cruiser 200, 78, 76 and Hilux models. Prado offers significant advantageous to our European customers from a cost, size, profile and supportability point of view, and our market-leading compliant solution mitigates risk to life in fragile environments.”

With several vehicles already sold and a further batch of vehicles in build for August completion Prado is proving to be a hit for FY18/19.
