The Armored Group introduced the new BATT-X series of armored vehicles, which allows law enforcement agencies and tactical teams to carry out rescue operations. The series was designed to accommodate fully geared officers comfortably while keeping them safe.

Based on the Ford F-550 4x4 chassis, the BATT-X is available in gas or diesel engines. The diesel version offers more torque and a faster response, while the gas model is quieter and less expensive. Both versions can achieve highway speeds over 80 miles per hour with 12 to 14 fully geared officers inside.

BATT-X features .50 caliber armor protection and offerings such as adjustable multi-angle hydraulic ram, gas injection devices, ram camera with sound, thermal cameras, winches, run flats, turret protection, and side door/crew cab/off-road ttire/rim packages. It also features a flip-forward or removable front clip for easy access to the engine bay.
