Equipment
From the roof, users can operate a multi-level ladder that can be secured to the mounting tube assembly or the front of the assault ramp. The height adjustable assault ramp provides rapid access into buildings and aircraft up to three meters above ground level. Combined with a multi-level ladder the VBAS is capable of reaching up to 8.5 meters, which are the upper doors of a Boeing 747. The ladder can also be fitted with an aircraft gantry platform, which provides users a stable platform to operate from into aircraft at any height the system can achieve. The gantry is able to swivel catering for a variety of approach angles, allowing the driver of the vehicle not having to be too critical. It’s fitted with a cushion bar for resting against aircraft, which can be removed to reveal a set of wheels for rolling up or down the wall of a building. The assault ramp can be fitted with a fast roping system, enabling users to fast rope over compound walls and fences up to two meters high. This can significantly reduce the entry time needed to a target.
Design and protection
The monocoque body, with optimal ballistic resistance and underbody blast protection provides protection firing of small arms and shell splinters. The vehicle body is made of ballistic steel with a maximum thickness of 6.5mm. The 3.7mm mild steel inner floor and the 6mm mild steel under body provide a protection against mine blast. In option, the Cobra can be upgraded with additional ceramic and composite add-on armour plates. To the front of the commander and driver is a large bulletproof window and in each side is a door with a bulletproof window. The vehicle is customizable with 3 or 5 doors. The rear part of the vehicle can carry four people. The roof of the vehicle is accessed via a rear access ladder, or additional side access ladders can be used.
Propulsion
The Streit Group Cobra 4x4 APC VBAS can be motorized with a Diesel 4.5 L V8 engine developing 216 hp or a Petrol 5.7l V8 engine developing 381 hp. The power unit can be coupled to a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission.
