Design and Protection
The protection of the Aravis Observation variant is based on the company's new Safepro Nexter armour technology, outclasses that of all existing 4 x 4 vehicles. Nexter Systems has developped SAFEPRO, an armour technology that can defeat combined effects (blast and fragments of attacks) generated both by the most lethal IED, mines and anti-personnel carbide HMG bullets.
Propulsion
The Aravis, is based on the light truck chassis Mecedes-Benz U-5000. Nexter Systems selected the Unimog U5000 chassis for the Aravis because of its legendary high mobility on roads and across country, and because of the wide availability of spare parts. The vehicle is powered by a 218-hp Mercedes Benz four-cylinder diesel OM 924 engine and can achieve a top speed of 100 km/h and a range of 750 km.
Accessories
The Aravis Observation variant is equipped with an optronic Margot 5000 system, an integrated surveillance solution, designed and manufactured by the French Company Thales. The standard equipment includes day/night observation system, rangefinder laser system.
