The French Army has received the first 30 of 931 armored vehicles, very
similar to armored hummers. The PVP (Pétits Véhicule Protégé) is a four ton
vehicle that can be configured to seat as many as seven (including the driver.)
It's a 4x4 vehicle protected by 6-10mm composite (metal and ceramic) armor that
provides protection from heavy machine-guns and anti-personnel mines. The PVP
is 14 feet long, air transportable and modular, so that it can quickly shift
from personnel to cargo carrier. The vehicles
cost $254,000 each.
