F2-LXC (LEXUS LX570)
Armoured VIP vehicles / Escort vehicle / Convoy vehicle
Every F2-LXC can be turned into your own, personal, one-of-a-kind vehicle through bespoke, luxurious upgrades. We offer customisations, vehicle stretching and roof heightening options with our without armouring.
Armoured vehicle for heads of state
Customised interiors, the installation of entertainment systems, and bespoke seats turn the F2-LXC into a premium vehicle for heads of state. The vehicle can be stretched and the roof heightened as requested. It can also be fitted with special, concealed radio and telephone systems.
Armoured patrol vehicle
When equipped with various positioning and radio and telephone systems, the F2-LXC becomes the ideal patrol vehicle.
Armoured support vehicle
Depending on the project requirements, the vehicle can be fitted with customised equipment, storage areas, pre-prepared cable harnesses, seating and work areas.
Armoured vehicles supplied by WELP Armouring are additionally reinforced to handle the extra chassis and brake weight of the vehicle. The chassis has been completely redesigned by our engineers and adjusted and developed to accommodate the increased vehicle weight. What’s more, every vehicle is fitted with a run-flat system that enables the vehicle to escape the danger zone even with a flat tyre.
The entire range of armoured SUVs has been tested by Germany’s independent ballistics testing agency (Beschussamt) and successfully certified to the latest VPAM standards. The protected passenger cell is based on a unique, modular bolt-in design system that enables repairs and inspection work to be carried out swiftly and without difficulty.
Our armoured SUVs are known across the globe for their reliability and are therefore in use in every area of conflict throughout the world.
Every armoured SUV supplied by WELP Armouring is equipped with the following basic features:
The passenger cabin is protected using high-ballistic steel. Every glass component is bullet resistant in accordance with the latest DIN EN 1063 BR6 NS standard. The transparent armouring comprises bulletproof glass with a polycarbonate film coating.
The vehicle’s armoured roof has been certified to the latest VPAM BRV standard and tested for roof detonations using 2 DM51s and/or 1 HG85.
Every vehicle supplied by WELP Armouring comes with an emergency exit built into the luggage compartment as standard. It is integrated into the armoured luggage compartment lid. When wearing protective clothing, it is therefore possible to make an exit through here even with equipment.
Armoured fuel tank
The main and additional fuel tanks are protected in the event of a ballistic or detonation attack. A self-sealing fuel tank can be optionally fitted.
WELP Armouring vehicles are equipped with interior DM51/HG85 underfloor mine protection (UMP) as standard. Higher interior DM31 UMP is optionally available. We do not recommend an exterior floor as this can create heat build-up in petrol-driven vehicles.
Reinforced door hinges
In-house developed reinforced door hinges as well as hinge reinforcements in the columns are used instead of Toyota’s original parts so as to accommodate the extra weight in the armoured doors and ensure that they work safely and securely without interruption.
Battery and control unit armour
Our armoured vehicles come with main and auxiliary battery armour as standard. What’s more, every control unit located outside of the ballistic protective cell is additionally ballistically protected.
Overlap protection system
Every vehicle supplied by WELP Armouring has a 360-degree overlap system as required by the VPAM standard. This overlap protection system above all protects all the spaces between the doorframe and the door as well as any openings in the case of a gun attack.
All complete wheels come with a run-flat system to enable the vehicle to travel 50 km on flat tyres at a maximum speed of 50 km/h. The run-flat system is fitted to 18” aluminium rims.
Exhaust pipe end grill
Every armoured vehicle comes with its own exhaust pipe end grill. This protects the vehicle’s occupants from the possibility of foreign objects being thrown into the exhaust pipe which could potentially bring the vehicle to a standstill.
To enable communications with people outside the vehicle, a corresponding intercom or interphone system is installed. An additional alarm system is also incorporated.
Impact bar/bull bar
The vehicle can optionally be fitted with a visible bull bar or visible impact bar. An LED fog lamp as well as additional LED indicator lights are integrated into the impact bar.
The above-mentioned vehicle types are examples of the vehicles used as armoured security trucks, cargo vans, personnel carriers, motor vehicles, troop carriers, emergency vehicles, police vehicles, special carriers, wheeled vehicles or armoured patrol vehicles for commercial use.
Our sales staff will be more than happy to submit an offer and provide you with further details on the available models as well as our range of optional extras.
