Osprea Logistics presents the Mamba Mk7, the latest version of its legendary Mamba Mk5 APC, built in the USA. With more power, innovative tactical capacities, advanced technology, upgraded armor protection, US components and manufacture, the Mamba Mk7 is the most cost-efficient APC built in North America.
The latest version of the legendary Mamba armored vehicle – the Mamba Mk7 – builds on the proven success of Osprea’s previous Mambas, the Mk5 and Mk5 Iveco, and now provides even higher degrees of ballistic and mine-blast protection, excellent mobility and more maneuverability than ever before.
The Mamba was one of the most successful wheeled vehicles designed to protect multi-role forces operating in mine-threatened environments. Thousands of Mamba vehicles have been built, and most are still in service in military, policing and peacekeeping operations, across Africa and the world, and spawning many variants in extensive use by US and NATO forces, such as the RG-31, RG-32 and RG-33
The Mamba has a documented and enviable in-service record for user- friendliness, safety, performance reliability and ease of logistics support. Sound in its ballistic and ergonomic design, having saved numerous lives in IED attacks in kinetic African Peace Keeping Operations, it remains the preferred choice in medium-sized wheeled armored vehicles.
The Mamba Mk7 retains the legendary design and performance capabilities of the Mamba pedigree, enhanced by the latest improvements from leading US OEM’s, and further developed with multiple configurations on the base-platform.
As the owner of the Mamba brand, only Osprea Logistics produces new Mamba Mk7 vehicles.

Additional options would add Ground Penetrating Radar to the EOD or IA vehicle.
Multi-Platform with a simplified unified logistics and parts supply chain
Osprea has developed a fully industrialised assembly process for the Mamba Mk5, enabling the vehicle to be built or assembled or even fully manufactured in the client’s country.
Fully scalable in its execution according to client needs and ability. Each stage of the process from component procurement, manufacture, through to assembly can be scaled from original part supply, to sub-assembly and higher assembly supply. Enabling the client to bring as much or as little of the vehicle manufacturing process into their own country, as they desire, in line with their economic imperatives and the industrialisation level of the country.
