Tactical Patrol Vehicle

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.

Key Features

– Permanent 4-wheel drive
– 2 Ton off-road Payload
– “Diff Lock” on Transfer Box & both Axles
– 460 mm Ground Clearance
– Proven in Service Functionality

Ease and economy of maintenance – though the use of proven, easy-to-maintain and commercially available components, compatible with many Magirus Deutz based fleets.

Long in-service life – through protection of main aggregates, recyclability of the hull and use of readily available spare parts.

Exceptional Off-Road Ability – there is no feasible terrain or gradient over which this vehicle will not pass.

Fleet Compatibility – with many African Forces relying heavily on Samil vehicles, the S20-T fits perfectly into the family.
