The VAB Ultima: armored vehicle ahead

Many changes have been made on the VAB, in order to adapt to the times and to Afghanistan," said Lieutenant-Colonel Winter, program officer of the Technical Section of the Army (STAT). "The VAB Ultima is the ultimate evolution of an ancient gear, yet still alive, that will ensure the transition to the multi-role armored vehicle (VBMR). "
Equipped with a remotely operated turret (TOP) and rear supports for Minimi , this latest version of the VAB is also better protected against mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) through a ventral shield and anti seats -mines. A false floor in the front and footrest to protect the rear occupants of the shock wave.
Different kits can be added, as needed, as the acoustic localization system for snipers (SLATE), which detects departures from blows and direct the cupola to the abuser. To a question of weight, you must make choices and give up some equipment.
