Babcock achieves contract milestone

Babcock is pleased to announce the completion of factory acceptance of the first delivery of VR7 Armoured Toyota Land Cruiser 300’s to a major NATO Government customer.

The new Land Cruiser 300 Series is a complete redesign of the outgoing 200 Series. Several months of rigorous design, development and testing (which included being shot at over 200 times and explosive devices being detonated next to the vehicle), resulted in successful PAS:300 and PAS:301 certifications. The team has worked tirelessly to ensure we can continue to work towards our purpose of creating a safe and secure world, together, with this next generation of Civilian Armoured Vehicles.

David Coombes, Contract Director – Security, said: “To design, develop, procure, manufacture, test, certify, and productionise in just over 12 months has been a monumental effort by all involved, and we are pleased our customers are happy with the result.”
