Lenco Industries will offer the BearCat X3 all-terrain special operations vehicle described as a "pickup-style APC" to law enforcement agencies seeking a more rugged counter-terrorism vehicle.
The BearCar X3 is a light armored personnel carrier that provides BR7 armor protection, the highest European glazing standard that can stop three strikes from small arms fire of up to 7.62x51mm NATO caliber rifle rounds.
The vehicle's high ground clearance enables aggressive off-road performance and excellent maneuverability, according to Lenco. The pickup-style BearCat X3 offers a large rear bed with a cargo capacity of up to 85 cubic feet with a 2,000-pound load rating.
The X3 offers a variety of interior layouts with seating for up to six tactical officers that support Lenco’s 360-degree rotating hatch and gunner stand. Configurations include networked radar surveillance for border security operations, a self-contained water deployment package, weapons mounting and storage, and medical evacuation. The vehicle that's set up for border security operations includes integration of the telephonics Radar and Video Enforcement Network-Mobile (RaVEN-M) system along with NetCom and TruLink intercom units.
Lenco will show the vehicle for the first time at the SOFIC 2016 Exhibition in the Tampa Convention Center from May 23 to 26.
