An armored car with a rocket-propelled grenade stuck in it was shown on video


Designed to protect personnel from mines and land mines, MRAP class armored vehicles can also successfully save them from other weapons of destruction. This is evidenced by the video posted on social networks.

It shows a specialized vehicle that has been under intense terrorist fire. Numerous hits are visible in the armored glass of the side windows, but none of them is broken.

The attackers also used an RPG-7 grenade launcher. The ammunition fired from it stuck in the upper part of the body and did not cause any serious damage.

As a result, the crew left the battle with a rocket-propelled grenade sticking out of their armor.

It is reported that this incident occurred recently in Mozambique, and the hero of the video was the South African Casspir Mk. 3, well-proven during various operations, including peacekeeping.

Their great advantage is the ability to withstand an explosion under the wheel of a land mine weighing up to 21 kg.

Own weight - 10880 kg. Capacity-14 people. Diesel engine power-170 hp Maximum speed - 98 km/h. The power reserve is 770 km.

There is a version of the Casspir Mk. 6 Protector, made on the chassis of the Russian Ural-4320, with a 230-horsepower engine. This armored car, which can be three-axle, also has excellent protection characteristics.
