Superior protection combined with  off-road mobility

Volvo Group’s HIGUARD (MRAP) combines the excellent off-road mobility of the Sherpa Medium 6×6 tactical vehicle with the very high level of protection of its specially armoured cab (ballistic, mine and IED protection).

The HIGUARD (MRAP) is ideally suited for tactical missions such as troop transport in asymmetric combat areas. Its large volume and payload accommodates up to 12 soldiers with their equipment. The HIGUARD (MRAP) is also fitted for a roof mounted weapon system.
