Creation UK Limited presents at IAV 2011 the new 6x6 Zephyr SRV Specific Requirements Vehicle.
Creation, the UK-based defence vehicle design and engineering company, will present the 6x6 variants of its Zephyr SRV (Specific Requirements Vehicle) at International Armoured Vehicles 2011, following formal requests to licence the design – and other configurations of the vehicle - for local manufacture and assembly overseas. The company is also taking the opportunity to introduce a number of styling changes to develop the appearance of all its protected vehicle platforms.

The new 6x6 Zephyr SRV variant is designed to carry a payload of around 5 tonnes, depending on base vehicle protection level – and will significantly widen the range of operational roles, body types and specialist applications for which the vehicle envelope can be configured. These include pick-up utility vehicle, troop carrier, command and control, Weapons Mounted Installation Kit (WMIK), reconnaissance and battlefield ambulance. Zephyr SRV is also able to carry a range of roof-mounted options, including protected or remote weapons stations (RWS).

Crew and seating layouts can be varied from two to eight occupants, to suit operational requirements. Space is also allocated for weapons fit, communications suites, situational awareness (SA) systems and other electronic devices. Additional features include fully integrated Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) and the capability to support exportable power requirements.
