BearCat climbs to new heights (ES14E1)

16 June 2014

Lenco Industries Inc (Hall 5, Stand A448), a global leader in the design and manufacture of armoured police vehicles, is showing its proven BearCat G2 armoured SWAT tactical vehicle in the markings of the KLPD Netherlands National Police Services Agency, whose fleet already includes a Lenco BEAR and BearCat.

The vehicle on display is a four-door variant with rearward-facing flip-down seats, which offers an open floor plan and five entry and egress points. This functionality greatly enhances tactical response and rescue capabilities in tight urban settings and active shooter scenarios where protected access to downed personnel is critical. It also features the Patriot3 ARC hydraulic ramp system, which allows operators to approach second- and third-storey structures, aircraft and ships-at-dock to conduct assaults and rescues. It is notable for its capability to convert from a ramp platform to stairs, allowing operators to reach increased heights and a more gradual ascent and descent. A host of low-profile lighting and communications equipment is also fitted.

The US company designs, develops and manufactures armoured security vehicles for law enforcement, military, government and private security forces working to safeguard security at home, as well as in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Lenco’s client base includes the nation’s most prestigious law enforcement agencies and is the sole source for more than 90 per cent of US SWAT teams; it has a growing international presence.
