First presentation in Asia for Nexter Aravis wheeled armoured vehicle at IndoDefence.
Unveiled at Eurosatory 2008, the ARAVIS® is the most protected multirole vehicle in its category. One of the major advantages of this new 12 tonne 4x4 vehicle is its protection, a main concern of armed forces, highlighted by experience acquired in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Current generation of protected carriers in service can no longer cope with the increasing threat posed by improved IED, mines and more powerful kinetic projectiles. Nexter Systems have developed SAFEPRO® armour technology that can defeat combined effects (blast and fragments) attacks generated both by the most powerful IED, mines and AP carbide HMG Bullets. SAFEPRO® is the core solution for the new family of ARAVIS® vehicles.

The Aravis vehicle has been successfully tested to withstand 'heavy IED attack', with the detonation of 50kg TNT at a distance of 5m, which might become the Nato STANAG level 4 protection against improvised explosive devices. The IED-protection features built into the Aravis are anti-blast and anti-fragmentation side walls and anti-blast doors. The doors withstood the 50kg TNT blast trials without malfunction.

Defeats 155mm burst all around (STANAG 4569)

Tested 50 kg TNT @ 5 m without doors malfunction
