The unbelievable power of force protection vehicles reveals every country’s aspiration to defend its troops or territory. Every country has been developing its means of technology in the twenty-first century. As much as it is essential to understand that humanity despises violent machines, it’s also deemed safe to develop these machines since it provides a sense of security once the nation has a strong defense channel and high protection.


Nowadays, armies of almost all the top countries have been relying upon the very vigilant and powerful force protection vehicles. There are tons of different kinds in the market ranging from the classic vehicle- a participant of world wars- to the modernized versions. There are also many different kinds of minute detailing in these robust vehicles. From security cameras, including dashcams or the spy covert cam, to the channel of power guns, there is a wide range of options any of these Vehicles provides- to assure a fool-proof security network.

We are compiling some interesting and hefty features of the force protection vehicles since it will give us a sense of how much strength each of the designs carries, respectively. Let’s discuss these vehicles by their names!

T-90MS: The Russian Flying Tank

As we already have mentioned above, mainly every technology field has been evolving lately. Similar is the case with power vehicles. The T-90MS is also a modernized version of Russia’s t-90 main battle tank. The flying tank is famous for carrying huge loads along with a maintained speed. Its creation in the late 1980s is understood to be a game-changer and a milestone- not only in Russia but in the whole world.

A unique feature of this tank is its very lightweight for its purpose. Apart from that, T-90 has a high cruising endurance; it can deal with the water fields, has its own missile system attached, and has a very efficient night mode. With all these features, the T-90 is a ridiculously low-maintenance vehicle in its diesel engine. The features have been updated according to the latest suitability with increased mobility, improved cannon, and sleek firing ammunition with all the modernization.

Ultimate Polaris ATVs

ATVs are another big deal out there. These vehicles are among the most famous and used under the US Special Operations Command. It’s important to feature its small posture and its great mobility. ATVs are great in traction to give their ultimate in gripping the terrain to fetch operators from the corners and in the sands. The special thing about the militarized All Terrain Vehicles- ATVs is that they can be deployed to and from greater distances because of their small structure.

Similarly, its size provides the option of being logistic support at hand to ground combat units meanwhile carrying transport and military supplies at a far quicker pace than on foot- since a large tank can’t be just used for insignificant traveling- ATVs are the option to go. ATVs also have nighttime mobility- those mobiles specifically known as LTATV, i.e., Light Tactical All-Terrain Vehicle.

Despot 4×4 APC

Now APC is the classic-looking power vehicle that is deeply abled for multiple purposes and a 4×4 drive. The Despot mine-restraint ambush-protected vehicle can be used from patrol missions, reconnaissance missions, command vehicles, counter-guerrilla, counter-terror combat, strict border control, and the military medical vehicle. The Despot 4×4 APC has a high-quality steel armor hull for additional security.

With the help of six forward and single reverse gear, the despot can speed up to 120 km/h, which makes it way more efficient respectable to the size and weight of the vehicle. The vehicle also has assured independent suspension ability, a tire inflation system, high mobility, a couple of forwarding opening doors, and is consistent with the left-hand drive configuration.

Kamov Ka-52 Alligator

As well all know, power vehicles aren’t just restricted to the land or the marine. Air-army needs support and strength just like any other. One fine example of the force protection helicopter is the model Kamov. Russian-based Kamov Ka-52 is a reconnaissance combat helicopter. Its small body never compromised its great duty of destroying the tanks, armored or non-armored ground battles, several enemy lines, and whatnot.

One good feature of a helicopter is the possibility of targeting the front line troops and being able to fetch the conditioned reserves as well- all these duties the Ka-52 performs perfectly. Kamov Ka-52 Alligator provides a command for helicopter teams and the ground command, conveying the routine patrols and military convoys to their new position while watching the enemy.

Because of its high and advanced reconnaissance system, the new Ka-52 Alligator, named ‘black shark,’ has been taking up an expanded crew team to operate the optronics and radar suite. Starting the journey from the 1980s, the Ka-52 has gone under several powerful alterations and modifications up till 2010. Apart from active reconnaissance, this helicopter has signature control devices, electronic countermeasures, and a double-seat cockpit so that either of the pilots can fly it.

The intelligent crafting of the alligator provides the most advanced flight abilities such as the presence of coaxial rotors making the jet maneuver and attacking into the marginalized spaces, a pair of turboshaft engines allowing operation at highest altitudes, the static ceiling, and the ability to work just as fine whether the weather is extremely hot or extremely cold and icy.


These and many other intense, powerful, differently-abled, and efficient force protection vehicles are the main strength behind any other army. The traditional tanks are still the most radical and cared-about items in the list of force protection vehicles since the operation field is the land- however, the powerful functions and sick abilities of drones and jets cannot be denied at all.
