The JAIS Family of Vehicles brings together forty years of experience in protected mobility. It offers survivability and tactical mobility in a rare balance that, together with significant internal volume and payload, enables multi-role application and allows multiple customisation options.
The cross-over nature of this family of vehicles makes it the ideal choice for deployment in the volatile and unpredictable modern combat theatre. The highly modular JAIS provides modern suspension and powertrain, high power-to-weight ratio and excellent situational awareness.
The JAIS in 6x6 configuration incorporates significant internal volume, with a payload capacity of 7,500 kg. The vehicle is designed for multi-role applications and multiple configurations. The vehicle can be fitted with a multitude of weapon systems and mission equipment.

The JAIS 6x6 is motorized with a 600 hp Caterpillar diesel engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission generating a maximum torque of 1,900 Nm. It can reach 105 km/h, with a maximum cruising range of 700 km.
Standard equipment of JAIS 4x4 and 6x6 MRAPs includes a power management system, run-flat tires system, and a central tire inflation system. In option, both vehicles can be fitted with a range of onboard military equipment including Battlefield Management System (BMS), C4I (command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence) System, night/day vision, SAS (Situational Awareness System), and a display monitor.
The increased payload of the 6x6 version provides a platform to which a multitude of weapons, mission equipment and enhanced protection systems can be added without sacrificing the vehicle mobility performance. The JAIS 6x6 is an ideal platform to compliment the 4x4 version and allowing users to meet a diverse range of requirements.
