The Israeli company Mobius, which specializes in the design, development and production of life-saving and energy-absorbing (EA) systems for military vehicles, has been providing energy-absorbing combat seats for the new armored personal vehicle (APV) of the Serbian army, the Lazanski 8x8. It is estimated that the supply is for hundreds of APVs.
A prototype of the new APV made by the Serbian company Yoguimport was first presented at an exhibition held this week in Belgrade. The vehicle has a crew of three including a driver, commander and gunner, while its rear part is able to accommodate up to 10 infantrymen that are seated on Mobius' anti-mine blast seats.
