On May 30, Roshel unveiled its latest offering, the Senator MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected), at the CANSEC show in Ottawa. The NATO-certified US-based independent laboratory conducted successful STANAG 4569 AEP 55 level 2 and level 2a/2b ballistic and blast tests on the MRAP.

Drawing upon Roshel’s extensive expertise in manufacturing armored vehicles, the Senator MRAP has been engineered to withstand 7.62×39mm API BZ caliber rounds at 30 meters with a velocity of 695 m/s. Additionally, it can withstand a blast of 6 kg (explosive mass) AT Mine activated under any wheel or under the center.R

The armored body incorporates a V-shape, which acts as a deflective armor structure, diverting the force of an explosion away from the vehicle’s cabin and diffusing explosive energy. By redirecting the blast wave and shrapnel to the sides, the V-shaped hull minimizes the impact and reduces the risk of severe injuries or fatalities. Furthermore, it absorbs and dissipates explosive energy, reinforcing the vehicle’s resilience against blasts.

The vehicle’s adaptable layout and advanced engineering create an ergonomic and flexible workspace, ensuring optimal performance and operational efficiency. The MRAP is available in various configurations, such as counter UAV, medical evacuation, and command and control (C2). The Senator MRAP’s high ground clearance, four-wheel drive, and 6.7L turbo diesel engine enable efficient off-road capabilities.
