New Toyota Land Cruiser-based APC from Inkas boasts outstanding off-road capability

A high level of maneuverability and off-road performance are key characteristics of the latest addition to Inkas’ extensive fleet of special purpose vehicles, and armoured personnel carriers.

The new Hudson APC has been specifically designed for SWAT, law enforcement, and border patrol agencies, according to the Toronto-based Canadian company which specializes in security and protection services. The vehicle is powered by a 4.5L diesel V8 engine, and a five-speed manual transmission. It is based on the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser 79 platform – the Japanese auto maker’s reliable, and longest running vehicle series.

The Hudson can comfortably transport up to eight passengers, and one turret operator.

“This   highly maneuverable and configurable armored  personnel  carrier can be easily custom-fitted with various technologies and systems making it a great choice for law enforcement   agencies,” said David Khazanski, CEO of Inkas.

Hudson APC is fully armored in accordance with CEN 1063 Level BR6. In order to ensure the maximal survivability and ongoing dependable service, the vehicle’s perimeter,  engine bay, and  key  mechanical  components  are protected  with composite lightweight armor materials that weigh half of what industry-standard armor plates of the same size weigh.

Lightweight armor allows the Hudson APC to demonstrate better mobility and speed performance compared to equal-sized vehicles on the market – all the while maintaining top ballistic protection levels.

 

To better perform in volatile situations, the Hudson APC  is equipped  with a siren/PA system, removable wire mesh glass protection modules and external view cameras that provide comprehensive situational analysis regardless of environment.

The wide field-of-view from within the driver cabin as well as electronic night-vision system make the Hudson APC an ideal choice for larger fleets in remote areas. Equipped with all-around perimeter gun ports, two escape hatches, the vehicle is as tactical as it is dependable, said Inkas.
