Recognising the ubiquity and popularity of the “Toyota technical” amongst irregular forces on the African continent, the Samil 20 was identified as the ideal platform onto which to build a superior load-carrying and tactically potent response. The S20-T is that vehicle.
The S20-T is based on the renowned Samil 20 chassis and drive chain. Originally developed for the rigorous conditions of Southern Africa where extreme terrain and conditions apply, the Samil 20 has a long and well proven record of performance and reliability under African conditions.
With a lowered centre of gravity and reduced weight, the S20-T has even greater off-road and extreme terrain capabilities than the already unparalleled Samil 20.
While this vehicle is reaching the end of its development stage, the final configurations of the rear load-bin are highly flexible to the client input and recommendations.
The S20-T is designed as a tactical patrol, long-range reconnaissance and weapons delivery platform. The enhanced cab to carries up to 3 operators, and four fighting positions with a variety of weapons options in the rear.
The S20-T is Africa’s answer to the need for a classic “Humvee” or tactical Land Rover.
