The Rakshak is a heavy-duty bulletproof vehicle with a powerful four cylinder, 61 HP engine. The Rakshak’s composite armor stops front, side, and rear attacks with 7.62mm bullets from a distance of 10m, and its roof protects the passenger compartment from a 45 degree attack from 10m. An optional light machine gun comes with a protection shield in the front, providing a firing range of 120 degrees. A ballistic carpet to provide 98 percent underbelly protection from shrapnel grenades can be installed on request.
Today the Rakshak is serving the Indian Army, police and paramilitary forces - saving lives in Jammu and Kashmir, North-Eastern States, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand. It’s also used by the Paramilitary and Security forces of Guyana and Nepal.
