Trojan armoured vehicle

Trojan is an armoured engineer vehicle designed to open routes through complex battlefield obstacles and clear a path through minefields.

Standard equipment includes a dozer blade, mine plough and an excavator arm.

A full-width mine plough (pictured above, being used in Afghanistan) can be mounted at the front to clear mines and a marking system can also be fitted. It can also carry fascines, to fill ditches, and tow a trailer-mounted, rocket-propelled, mine-clearing system.

Improved visibility is achieved by incorporating direct and indirect vision devices with low-light, image-intensifying and thermal imaging capabilities. The interior, and to some extent the exterior, of the vehicle has been designed around the crew station positions.

Trojan has the flexibility to support a wide range of operations, including humanitarian missions.
