INKAS® Announces the Unveiling of the New Sentry MPV
At this year’s CANSEC conference, INKAS® unveiled its brand-new Sentry Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV). The new Sentry MPV is a product of advanced development and unique technical design and has made its debut at Canada’s Global Defence and Security Trade Show, May 30-31, 2018.
This new iteration built upon the Sentry APC platform was designed to add more flexibility and customization options while still maintaining the superior protection and comfort one expects from an INKAS® armored vehicle. Using mission-tested solutions, INKAS® has improved upon previous models to design a vehicle able to adapt to any environment. Due to its lighter size and advanced off-road capabilities, the new Sentry MPV can get on site faster, making it an ideal solution for first responders, law enforcement, SWAT, and border control agencies.
The new Sentry model can accommodate four to six people including the driver, and the configurable seating arrangements allow occupants to operate the MPV while maintaining all tactical positions. The INKAS® Sentry MPV is also lighter than a traditional Sentry APC, which increases its maneuverability while keeping its occupants comfortable in almost any climate and terrain.
The brand-new innovative design language has produced a multipurpose armored vehicle with a “pick-up truck” style rear bed that is true to the reliability and adaptability congruent with the INKAS® brand. Whether it is used for transport and maintenance operations, rescue and medical evacuations, personal transport, or surveillance, the Sentry MPV is flexible to suit any mission.
