Israeli Firm Hatehof designed the vehicle and manufacturer it with Rafael. The vehicle is believed to use some type of passive armour designed by Rafael, in a cab designed to be versatile enough that it can be modified to fit the chassis of commercial heavy duty trucks.
Currently this cab system is fitted to the Ford F-550 chassis which is modified by Manning Equipment, an OEM up-fitter located in Louisville, KY so it can be easily maintained anywhere. It is equipped with a diesel, 6 litre 325 HP engine and automatic 5 speed transmission. It can weigh up to 8 tonnes.
Its not fully clear as to the level of protection the vehicle gives, however its supposed to replace the M113’s in urban patrol work and can carry a crew of up to 12 personnel, with an additional 2 stretch beds, if necessary.
