Little is known about the SUV but it features a rugged front bumper, recovery hooks, and a snorkel.  The model also has side steps, a heavy-duty suspension, and massive wheels with off-road tires.  While this particular prototype isn’t equipped with armoured paneling, the production model surely will.

The model should build on the success of the G Wagon LAPV 6.1 armored which billed as an “agile and versatile workhorse with superior off-road capabilities.”
