IMUT President Michel Knight told Jane's that the Egyptian Armed Forces has shown serious interest in the larger of the two, the ST-100 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) vehicle, saying it has requested modifications before ordering it. He said he expects a contract to be signed very soon.

Reham Fahmi, IMUT vice-president for strategic alliances, said the MRAP has already passed extensive protection tests carried out by the Egyptian Armed Forces.

The IMUT specification sheet lists the vehicle as having a curb weight of 14,500 kg and a payload of 3,500 kg. It is powered by a 450hp Cummins engine. Another specification sheet released by the Egyptian Tank Plant said the vehicle has four-wheel steering, anti-lock braking, and automatic fire suppression systems. It has STANAG Level 4 protection at the front and underneath, with Level 3 on its sides and roof.
