Armored Security Vehicles
Through extensive R&D and years of experience, IAG has designed and created our SmartarmorTM technology. Our armored security vehicles featuring SmartarmorTM are capable of defeating an array of ballistic and blast threats enabling the vehicle occupants to effectively counter and survive hostile environments and threats.
We were one of the first companies in the world to receive VR7 vehicle certification for our armored Toyota Land Cruiser 200 series. VPAM BRV 2009 VR7 certification is conducted by the internationally acclaimed laboratory Beschussamt Mellrichstadt located in Germany.
IAG is now introducing armored 2013 GMC Savana Diesel vans, which are available to order today.
The VR7 certification process is an extensive test to ensure the armored security vehicle can withstand ballistic and blast threats. The VR7 certification process places the armored vehicle through a live fire test with over 400 strategically placed shots, and a number of live explosive tests.
Additionally, through IAG's innovative engineering, the armoured vehicle suspension is strengthened to match the original suspension despite the added weight of the protective materials. Also, any loss in power and breaking performance resulting from the additional weight can easily be overcome through engine enhancements and modifications to the original breaking system, all of which can be performed by the specialists at IAG.
Custom Armored Vehicles
IAG custom tailors each armored vehicle to provide clients with a solution that meets their specific needs. We consult with each client to understand their specific requirements and to recommend the best possible custom armor solution for them.
IAG is able to provide custom armored vehicles at various levels of ballistic protection (from B4 to B7) with upgraded suspension and braking systems, heavy duty run flat tires and bumpers, additional air scoops, cooling fans and radiator protection and many more valuable features.
