Pittsfield, MA – Lenco Industries, Inc., the global leader in the design and manufacture of armored police vehicles, will highlight its proven BearCat® armored tactical vehicle at Eurosatory 2014, June 16-20 in Paris, France located in Hall 5, Booth A448. Eurosatory is the largest international land and air-land defense and security exhibition dedicated to professional meetings bringing international players in the defense and security supply chain together.
The BearCat G2 armored SWAT vehicle on display at Eurosatory 2014 belongs to the KLPD Netherlands National Police Services Agency and joins a Lenco BEAR and BearCat already in the KLPD fleet. This BearCat is a 4-Door variant with rearward facing flip-down seats, which offers and open floor plan and 5 entry and egress points on the vehicle. 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. In addition, this BearCat G2 features Lenco’s Hydraulic RAM and a host of Low Profile lighting and communications equipment. Also included is Lenco’s award winning gas injector unit, which won a 2011 Tactical Innovation Award. Mounted on the vehicle’s hydraulic ram bar, this unique tool allows for controlled delivery of chemical agents into a hostile environment from the safety of an armored BearCat®.
The KLPD Netherlands BearCat at Eurosatory 2014 also came equipped with a Patriot3 ARC Hydraulic Ramp System. The ARC vehicle-mounted ramp allows operators to approach second and third-story structures, planes and ships-at-dock to conduct assaults and rescues. Patriot3’s new ARC system is revolutionary because of its capability to convert from a ramp platform to stairs, which allows the system to reach increased heights and provide a more gradual ascent / descent for operators.
With Patriot3’s Elevated Tactics Systems in current use around the world, they continue to prove themselves in real-world missions as an integral tool to mission success. Patriot3 offers operator training for the ARC Hydraulic Ramp System within the United States and at client locations around the world.
Lenco and Patriot3 will both have International Sales Representatives available to answer questions and discuss the technical capabilities of their equipment.
