Upgraded Sentry is ready for a challenge [CANSEC2016D1]

25 May 2016

Toronto-based INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing (Booth 1815) is demonstrating the new generation of its Sentry armoured personnel carriers (APCs), multipurpose tactical vehicles that have proved themselves as a favourite choice for extreme climate condition missions.

With its precision-engineered mechanical components, powerful engine and high clearance, the Sentry is able to operate in a variety of challenging environments and terrains.

The new Sentry has been upgraded and optimised for even better performance, with riot control features including a powerful acoustic hailing and warning device, a removable vehicle-mounted barrier for effective crowd control, as well as a durable body frame, built on a heavy-duty truck chassis, and a high ballistic protection level.

The Sentry can also be further customised to serve as a self-sufficient mobile command centre, command control unit, personnel carrier or as a medical evacuation vehicle, among others.

“We are proud to announce the upgraded Sentry in the INKAS APC family,” said INKAS COO, Major General David Fraser. “This machine is unique in terms of technical specifications, design and assembly. We know how important it is to securely and comfortably transport the passengers within an APC in various challenging environments and have implemented the latest innovations to ensure this.”

The INKAS Sentry APC is designed to be used by military forces, SWAT and other law enforcement agencies. It has been deployed to many countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia.
