De­signed for LE and Bor­der Pa­trol, the INKAS Hudson is a state-ofthe-art ar­mored per­son­nel car­rier.

In what can be a volatile world, INKAS Ar­mored Ve­hi­cle Man­u­fac­tur­ing seems to have a per­fect so­lu­tion: the INKAS Hudson APC. Check out its cre­den­tials.

In or­der to en­sure max­i­mum sur­viv­abil­ity for law en­force­ment and the Bor­der Pa­trol, the ve­hi­cle’s perime­ter, en­gine bay and key me­chan­i­cal com­po­nents are protected with com­pos­ite light­weight ar­mor ma­te­ri­als. These ma­te­ri­als, com­pany of­fi­cials said, weigh half of what in­dus­try-stan­dard ar­mor plates of the same size weigh. This light­weight ar­mor al­lows the Hudson APC to demon­strate “im­pec­ca­ble” mo­bil­ity and speed per­for­mance com­pared to equal-sized ve­hi­cles on the mar­ket— all while main­tain­ing top bal­lis­tic pro­tec­tion lev­els.

To bet­ter per­form in volatile sit­u­a­tions, the Hudson APC is equipped with a siren/pa sys­tem, re­mov­able wire mesh glass pro­tec­tion mod­ules and external view cam­eras that pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive sit­u­a­tional anal­y­sis

re­gard­less of en­vi­ron­ment. The wide field-of-view from within the driver cabin, as well as elec­tronic night vi­sion sys­tem, strengthen the Hudson’s arsenal. Equipped with all around perime­ter gun ports, two escape hatches, the ve­hi­cle is as tac­ti­cal as it is de­pend­able.

“This highly ma­neu­ver­able and con­fig­urable ar­mored per­son­nel car­rier can be eas­ily cus­tom-fit­ted with various tech­nolo­gies and sys­tems mak­ing it a great choice for law en­force­ment agen­cies,” said David Khaz­an­ski, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Toronto-based INKAS Ar­mored Ve­hi­cle Man­u­fac­tur­ing. “We are proud to pro­vide the high­est stan­dards of qual­ity, de­sign and work­man­ship in the in­dus­try.”

This new Ar­mored Per­son­nel Car­rier (APC) joins the com­pany’s al­readyex­ten­sive fleet of spe­cial-pur­pose ve­hi­cles. The Hudson has been specif­i­cally de­signed for SWAT, law en­force­ment and bor­der pa­trol agen­cies, of­fer­ing a re­li­able as well as com­pact so­lu­tion for se­cure per­son­nel trans­porta­tion. Based on a Toy­ota Land Cruiser 79 plat­form, the ve­hi­cle en­sures a high level of ma­neu­ver­abil­ity while se­curely and com­fort­ably trans­port­ing up to eight pas­sen­gers and one tur­ret op­er­a­tor.

De­signed to serve in ex­treme cli­mate con­di­tions, the Hudson APC has an aux­il­iary air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem as well as ex­haust fan for quick ven­ti­la­tion and air re-cir­cu­la­tion, which im­proves the pas­sen­gers’ en­vi­ron­ment. Sup­ported by a 4.5L diesel V8 and five-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion, the new Hudson APC is char­ac­ter­ized by a high level of off-road per­for­mance and ma­neu­ver­abil­ity, even in crowd-con­trol sit­u­a­tions where clear­ance and mo­bil­ity is lim­ited.

To meet various trans­porta­tion reg­u­la­tions, the Hudson APC is of­fered in both left-hand-drive as well as right­hand-drive con­fig­u­ra­tions. Volatile world … do you re­ally want to chal­lenge the Hudson? TW
