Carmor Integrated Vehicle Solutions – an Israeli developer, designer, and manufacture of special-purpose vehicles, including all-terrain protective military vehicles for all types of applications – will unveil the Mantis Family of tactical armored vehicles at Eurosatory 2018.

The Mantis family of vehicles is equipped with multi-layered protection including kinetic, blast, NBC and TIC, in addition to dynamic thermal and visible camouflage options. Carmor's vehicles undergo rigorous ballistic testing against mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and meet international standards.

The new family of vehicles also includes provision for integrated night vision and surveillance systems and can be fitted with foldable weapon stations, missile launchers, mortars, and turrets.

The Mantis Family has four customizable versions for 3, 5, or 8 passengers, with an option of a scalable flatbed in the rear. Each version can be customized according to requirements. The driver of the vehicle is seated in a cockpit-like position, enabling enhanced field of vision and optimal control of the various digitally displayed systems in the cabin.

“The development of the Mantis Family answers the global demand for lightweight vehicles with improved capabilities in the field,” says CEO Eitan Zait. “These new vehicles provide a range of solutions and capabilities together with a unique ergonomic design that do not exist in any other lightweight armored vehicle. The combination of utilization of the internal space of the vehicle, the cockpit configuration for the driver, and the rear compartment, deliver a variety of solutions to meet a full range of mission needs in the field.”
