Safe, secure transport

The best transport solutions


Armoured commercial vehicles and vans from WELP Armouring are used in particular for the professional conveyance of people and goods. These armoured vehicles are especially deployed by relief organisations (UN), shipping companies / forwarders, corporations and special forces.

Our portfolio includes the following armoured commercial vehicle models:


Basic vehicle: Mercedes Benz Sprinter
Protection level: VPAM VR4 – VR9/BRV2009 & ERV2010

With a wide variety of configuration options, the F-MSC is exceptionally versatile and can be used as a people carrier, delivery van, security truck, troop carrier or even as an ambulance. The armoured F-MSC is based on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter.

This vehicle can be manufactured to a low protection level (VR4) all the way up to the very highest protection level (VR9). To this end, the protection concept is based on a modular construction, with the armouring fitted entirely as a bolt-in design.
