Mamba™ Mk7-X


The Next Generation of the Legendary Armoured Vehicle

Osprea Logistics presents the Mamba Mk7-X. The Mamba Mk7-X raises the Mamba platform to new levels of performance for the higher-end user, while retaining the core features of simplicity and ease of maintenance.


Osprea’s Mamba Mk7-X is the new generation of the now famous Mamba Mk7, with considerable upgrades and features giving the user more power, greater manoeuvrability, increased protection levels and a number of built-in add on features making this vehicle the equal or better of any of its major OEM competitors.


  • Fully Independent Suspension
  • 408hp Water Cooled Engine
  • CTIS
  • Driver and Co-Driver doors
  • Higher all-round performance


The Mamba Mk7-X outperforms its competitors on all major capability data points.


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-X 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-X vehicles.


  • Combat proven pedigree
  • Maximum power, manoeuvrability, and protection
  • Advantageous price point

Industrial Partnership


Osprea is committed to bringing the product to the client, not the client to product, both in design and concept and in manufacturing process.

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.

  • Complete or Semi-Knock Down [CKD or SKD]
  • Fulfils immediate supply obligations and provides a platform for future development and growth.
  • Ability to sell and supply anywhere in the world.
  • Ability to do 3rd party contract manufacturing if required– complete or modular— in PPP or simple JV’s
  • Flexibility in providing products in different levels of break-down for assembly as required.
  • Fulfilment of legal/client requirements for maximum export, manufacturing and usage options.
  • Potential for licenced assembly or manufacture in client country
