DISCOVERY OF A HERO
Land Rover has built a customised version of the latest Discovery SUV to serve as an advanced command vehicle for the Austrian Red Cross.
Called Project Hero, the special support car comes with its own roof-mounted drone, which is able to land while the vehicle is in motion, perhaps en route to a disaster area. The bird’s-eyeview footage transmitted from the airborne drone would help emergency response teams to carry out their life-saving missions more effectively.
The 3-litre turbo-diesel 6-cylinder Project Hero is also equipped with a heavy-duty sliding boot floor, a segregation panel behind the rear seats, additional tool-mounting points, extra LED lights, multiple-frequency radio sets and numerous onboard power points which accept a variety of plugs from different regions.
