Mamba™ Mk5 Magirus
Osprea Logistics is proud to launch the next generation of the legendary Mamba APC, the Mk5 Magirus – now with more power, innovative tactical capacities, advanced technology and new, upgraded armour protection.
Faced with 21st Century threats, governments, corporates and organisations operating in conflict environments repeatedly request the Mamba vehicles they know and trust.
The latest version of the legendary Mamba armoured vehicle – the Mamba Mk5 Magirus – 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. Some 1,000’s of Mamba vehicles have been built in South Africa; and most are still in service in military, combat and peace-keeping 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 remains the preferred choice in medium-sized wheeled armoured vehicles.
The new Mamba Mk5 Magirus 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.
