Mamba™ Mk5 Iveco
Osprea Logistics is proud of the next generation of the legendary Mamba APC, the Mk5 – now with a state of the art Iveco drive train, this brings the famous Mamba to a whole new level and pushes it into the 21st Century.
Faced with 21st Century threats, governments, corporates and organisations operating in conflict environments repeatedly request the Mamba vehicles they know and trust. This further development of the Mamba Mk5 range provides even higher degrees of ballistic and mine protection, excellent mobility and more manoeuvrability 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 in South Africa and most are still in service in military, combat and peacekeeping operations, across Africa and the world.
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, it is becoming the preferred choice in medium-sized wheeled armoured vehicles with over 60 sold into African peace operations in its first year of production.
The new Mamba Mk5 Iveco retains all of the legendary design and performance capabilities of the Mamba pedigree, combined with the latest improvements and modifications critical for 21st Century combat operations. All this at a price point that reflects the realities of today’s budgetary requirements.
As the owner of the Mamba brand, only Osprea Logistics produces new Mamba Mk5 vehicles.
