Sentry APC IAG
Wheeled 4x4 APC Armoured Personnel Carrier vehicle - UAE
The Sentry APC is the latest addition to International Armored Group’s growing fleet of armored tactical vehicles. The Sentry is a lightweight armored personnel carrier specifically designed for border patrol and reconnaissance missions. Its high mobility, great maneuverability and survivability make it ideal for both highly dense urban settings, as well as rural theatres. With a selection of diesel and petrol engines, available in both LHD and RHD configurations, this highly versatile APC can be used globally. Since 1984, the Toyota Land Cruiser 70 series has consistently proven to be one of the strongest, most off-road capable vehicle platforms in the world. Building upon this chassis, the IAG SENTRY APC is the smallest, lightest & most off-road capable tactical vehicle designed and manufactured by the Company IAG.
Military equipment packages are available such as armored turrets and weapon mounts. The cabin is equipped with weather and noise insulation and protective padding. The rear provides two bench seats that allow seating for six fully-geared soldiers with 4-point inertia harnesses. Custom configurations are available upon request. For ease of operational use, the OEM dashboard, gauges, turn signals, steering wheel, pedals, and climate controls are retained. This familiarity to any other Toyota Land Cruiser 70 series allows the driver and front passenger to quickly become accustomed to the vehicle.

|Design and protection|
Based on Toyota Land Cruiser 70 series, a commercial vehicle platform, the layout of the IAG Sentry APC is conventional with the engine at the front, the driver and commander in the middle, and the personnel compartment at the rear. The Sentry is able to seat a total of eight military personnel including the driver and the commander. The ballistic-resistant windows provide the same level of protection as the armored hull, with each side of the crew compartment equipped with three small ballistic-resistant windows and gun ports. The rear part of the hull includes a single armored door, with ballistic glass, allowing quick and easy access for entry and exit from the rear of the vehicle. The custom-built ballistic steel doors are securely held in place with military style latching locks and supported by heavy-duty billeted steel door hinges. Each piece of ballistic glass is held within a ballistic steel frame to ensure it will not be dislodged in the event of a large blast. Lastly, all doors are backed with ballistic steel overlaps around the entire aperture of each opening. The Sentry APC has an emergency roof escape hatch. The Sentry’s "V-hull design" is made of high-strength, certified steel to protect occupants against blasts, IEDs, mines, and other explosives. The protective floor of the vehicle also increases the structural rigidity of the platform, preventing the chassis from twisting or bending during extreme off-road use. The Sentry APC can be armored from level CEN B4/B4+ (AK-47 protection) up to CEN B6 (7.62 x 51mm protection), NIJ level III, and STANAG I.
|The IAG Sentry APC is available in 4x4 configuration both LHD and RHD and can be motorized by different types of engines: a 4.2L I6 Diesel (129hp/210lb-ft), a 4.5L V8 Diesel (200hp/317lb-ft) or a 4.0L V6 Petrol (240hp/277lb-ft). Those engines are coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission. The suspension, brakes and drivetrain are specifically designed and tuned to optimize off-road capability and handling.|
|The Sentry APC can be custom configured to meet any mission requirement. A 360-degree camera system can be installed providing situational awareness including IR and Thermal Imaging capabilities, with a large control screen allowing the operator to zoom in on an object or switch from day to night mode. The rear of the vehicle is equipped with bench storage for tools and equipment. Additional options are available upon request.|
