Completion of 50th Conversion of Armoured Landcruiser 300

We have recently completed the conversion of the 50th Armoured Toyota LC300 since production started in September 2022.

As an industry leader in vehicle conversions and producing vehicle platforms for those who operate in hostile climates, our engineering facility in the West Midlands has specialised in armoured vehicles for over 40 years. With five independently certified armoured vehicle solutions and over 800 civilian armoured vehicles active in service, we play a critical role in international defence and in keeping our customers safe.

The new Land Cruiser 300 Series was launched by Toyota in August 2021 and was a complete redesign of the outgoing 200 Series. The comprehensive whole-vehicle test regime included the vehicles successfully sustaining hundreds of ballistic impacts of varying bullet calibres, and over 21kg of explosives being detonated at varying distances to simulate a number of attacks.
