DSEI 2017: Penman launches new Metras MRV

14 September 2017

Penman launched its Metras family of wheeled armoured multirole vehicles (MRV) at DSEI 2017 in London.

The Metras MRV is being offered in the 4x4 and 6x6 configuration, although both models share the same diesel powerpack and driveline.

The vehicle features a welded monocoque steel hull that is installed on a ladder chassis with the engine compartment at the front, which leaves the remainder of the vehicle free for the crew compartment.

It is powered by a Mercedes-Benz 7.2 litre intercooled turbocharged diesel engine developing 326hp coupled to a ZF six-speed automatic transmission with automatic drive train management (ADM).

For routine operation the Metras MRV is EURO 5-compliant, although this is downgraded to EURO 3 when using F-54, F-63, and F-34 AVTUR fuel for combat operations.
