Vehicle shown in the pictures may vary from the one in the offer in details, subject to change without notice



Armor specifications / Standards

The armouring process has been integrated after the base vehicle production without changing the exterior appearance. The safety cell is engineered in such a way that all gaps between the main body of the vehicle and the doors are overlapped and fitted with spall-returns to prevent foreign projectiles or splinters from entering the passenger compartment. Materials All armoring materials utilized such as steel, aramid and fiberglass have been ballistic ally tested by independent German authorities (Beschussamt). Test reports can be presented upon request during a factory visit or with prior notice. However complete ballistic protection is not possible for reasons of design and modern weapon technology. Opaque areas When armoring as per protection level B6, all opaque areas are protected against projectiles fired with the following calibers and all lesser weapons at 90° (roof 45°)

impact angle in accordance and above the requirements of the EEC / CEN classification.

•  Caliber 7.62 x 39 mm, FJ/PB/SC, AK 47, (Kalashnikov) OBR-43 PS

• Caliber 5.45 x 39.5 mm AP, FJ/PB/SCP, AKS 74, (Kalashnikov) OBR-74

• Caliber 5.56 x 45 mm, FJ/PB/SCP, US rifle M16 A2, SS-109 /M-855

• Caliber 7.62 x 51 mm, FJ/PB/SC, “FAL” / "LAR" NATO rifle Transparent areas When armouring as per protection level B6, all transparent areas are protected against projectiles fired with the following calibres and all lesser weapons at 90° impact angle in accordance and above the requirements of the EEC / CEN classification.

•  Caliber 7.62 x 39 mm, FJ/PB/SC, AK 47, (Kalashnikov) OBR-43 PS • Calibre 5.45 x 39,5 mm AP, FJ/PB/SCP, AKS 74, (Kalashnikov) OBR-74

• Caliber 5.56 x 45 mm, FJ/PB/SCP, US rifle M16 A2, SS-109 /M-855 • Calibre 7.62 x 51 mm, FJ/PB/SC, (FN) FAL / "LAR" NATO rifle Floor protection The floor of the vehicle is designed in such a way that it will defeat the following hand

grenades and all lesser explosives.

• 2x DM51 (German ordnance hand grenade) per sqm detonated simultaneously

Suspension and braking system Where needed, the entire suspension system has been changed to engineered-to-purpose components to ensure reliability and road safety in order to carry additional weight loads on a long term basis. Parts are re-engineered by dedicated our engineers. The vehicles braking system has been partially re-engineered to adhere additional weight constraints that have been applied to the vehicles main body components. Parts of the original base unit have been exchanged to special engineered-to-purpose parts.

Wheels / Tyres / Rims

We are working together with the leading tire manufactures. Rims and tire combinations are tested by independent German authorities to ensure the highest possible safety on a long term basis. On the armored version special upgraded rims are mounted to carry the additional payload. Tires and rims have been approved for the higher weight ratio according to TÜV (MOT) type recommendations and legal requirements. Modifications are carried out in such a way that they pass German type approval. All wheels supplied with the vehicle including associated spare wheels are fitted with proper run-flat tire inserts.


Base vehicle: Ford F-550 4x4
Doors: LHD, 3 doors
Engine Model: 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel (300HP)
Transmission: 6-speed automatic transmission

Dimensions & Weights
Length: 7.210 mm
Height: 3.000 mm
Width: 2.450 mm

Included security equipment

• Battery additional support (Back up) An additional support battery is installed in the event of the main vehicle battery not operating on full load; or when auxiliary electrical equipment is being used, such as communications. The battery is charged by a diode system and its capacity is constantly controlled. If the main battery is flat, or develops a defect, the second battery will take over this function.

• Battery amour protection x2 Both vehicle batteries, main and support, are protected with armored steel boxes, providing ballistic protection against projectiles and splinters. Both armored boxes can easily be removed for routine battery maintenance.

• Crew Area configuration The OEM glasses of the crew area (left and right) will remain to retain the outer appearance as original as possible. On the inside certified ballistic steel will be mounted.

• Hinges reinforced / engineered-to-purpose All original OEM door hinges have been replaced with specially designed reinforced strengthened heavy-duty door hinges. These hinges will hold the additional opaque and transparent amour features that are incorporated into the vehicle's doors. The engineered-to-purpose door hinges are directly connected (bolted and/or welded) to the ballistic steel making it impossible for the doors to sag.

•  Protected vehicle management system (Black box) As an added precaution, the vehicle management system black box is also protected with armored steel plating, protecting it against splinter and projectiles. Many important vehicle functions are electrically controlled by this piece of equipment.

• Quality automotive parts only The TROJAN® is built with quality brand names parts only! e.g. shock absorbers from Bilstein, Hensch, Bosch electrics etc. Quality keeps the vehicles in service longer and does not burden the limited logistical and maintenance supply teams.

• Run-Flat tire system x7 (including 1x full size spare tire) In the event of a vehicle receiving a puncture, blow-out or having deflated tires, the run-flat system will allow the vehicle to be driven under controlled conditions for 30km @ 50km/h. A run-flat system is a very important security measure. Keeping the vehicle mobile is absolutely essential in preventing would be attackers with hand held weapons from obtaining an accurate ballistic grouping on the vehicles armor areas. Keeping the vehicle mobile is absolutely essential, particularly in dangerous situations and remote regions.

• Side wing full length engine compartment armor Full wing length armored steel is mounted behind both forward wings, providing additional protection for the engine compartment. This is in addition to the safe-cage-/security-cell-concept already implemented in the bulkhead of the vehicle.

• Tail lights and "Kill switch" As a security precaution aid, an additional interactive "Kill switch" will enable the vehicle driver to kill all the vehicles lights in one easy action. This function enables the vehicle passengers to exit and enter the vehicle without interior / exterior lights from going on, thus drawing unwanted attention at night time. When the kill switch is activated, a glowing pin green light on the control switch is all that can be seen.

Interior Features / Additional security equipment (included):

• Vehicle interior Designed in such a way that it uses weight-efficient materials while providing comfort and aesthetic value taken minimisation of maintenance costs into consideration.

• Fire extinguishers (2kg) Two (2) 2kg fire extinguishers are fitted to the inside of the vehicle, one in the front compartment and one in the passenger compartment, allowing easy access.

• Air condition Driver’s cabin The vehicle is equipped with a suitable air condition system to allow vehicle operations also under harsh climate conditions.

• Air condition messenger/crew cabin The messenger/crew compartment is equipped with an additional air condition to allow proper vehicle operations even under harsh climate conditions.

• Spare parts package (recommended 2 year package) The vehicle comes with a two-year spare parts package including the fast using parts for this period.
