TITUS is built on a unique chassis produced by TATRA TRUCKS Inc. based in Koprivnice, Czech Republic.

The vehicle can withstand IED blasts of up to 150 kgs. Combined with state-of-the-art active and passive crew protection systems, TITUS is an armored vehicle of choice for the demanding scenarios of the 21st century.

There is a number of versions of the vehicle available, ranging from a classic IFV through a mobile command post, armoured ambulance to communications, maintenance and evacuation vehicles. For police purposes, there is a number of modules which can be used to quickly prepare a vehicle to fulfill specific roles, such as the SWAT module, the WCT module (Water Cannon Tank) or the riot control module.
