The F9-TLC700 can accommodate 6 people and also has an extra-large cargo area for additional cargo loads. As with all WELP Armouring armoured vehicles, the F9-TLC700 offers outstanding ballistic protection and also safeguards against explosives.

Its reliable road performance, exceptional brake power and the especially hard-wearing engine make the F9-TLC700 the ideal armoured vehicle for everyday usage.

The entire armouring around the modular passenger cell is constructed as a bolt-in design. The fitted armoured steel is further refined with an industrial coating making it permanently corrosion-resistant.
