New generation 8x8 Infantry Combat Vehicle.

Mbombe 8

The Mbombe 8 is at the vanguard of armoured vehicle technologies and has been developed to meet the increasing demand for multi-role, high mobility and mine hardened platforms, and for the changing demands of the global battlefield.
The Mbombe 8 employs an innovative new form of construction to give unprecedented levels of protection, while keeping profile to a minimum.

DRIVELINE CONFIGURATION

The Mbombe 8 utilises a ‘conventional’ or ‘in-line’ automotive driveline configuration, positioning the powerpack at the front of the vehicle and along its centre line. This configuration results in far greater efficiency in terms of the transfer of power from the powerpack to the wheels, as the loss of power associated with a second transfer gearbox necessary for ‘unconventional’ drivelines, such as with side-engined vehicles, is eliminated.

PROTECTION

The vehicle features mine-resistant flat floor technology which is central to the design of the 8x8 platform. The armoured hull provides excellent stopping power against ballistic attack (STANAG 4569 level 3 as standard) and anti-tank land mine explosions (STANAG level 4a and 4b).
