Jankel Group is specialists in the design, development and manufacture of security vehicles and armour systems based on commercially available Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4 platforms.
The Hunter Protected Personnel Vehicle (PPV) was conceived in response to a wide range of requirements from security force commanders for a multirole protected vehicle for internal security, public order, escort, counter-terrorism and patrol missions, based on the rugged and reliable heavy duty Toyota Land Cruiser Pick-up, resulting in competitive purchase price and low life cycle support costs.
7.62 x 51 mm NATO Ball (CEN Level B6) armour protection and under-body blast protection for up to 8 crew members.
Armour protection upgrades to enable the vehicle to withstand 7.62 x 39 mm API rounds and under wheel anti-tank mines.
Comprehensive specification with a wide range of optional equipment packages to enable the vehicle to fulfil a variety of security roles.
The Hunter PPV benefits from the worldwide experience Jankel Group has gained from manufacturing and supporting Toyota-based vehicles, over many years, to Police, Military and humanitarian aid agencies.

Armoured Mission Vehicle (AMV)
The Hunter AMV has been designed as a double cap pick-up to provide a capability specific to the humanitarian missions’ user and shares the same drive-train, spare parts and maintenance schedules as many of the Toyota vehicles already in the humanitarian fleet. This means that the vehicle can be quickly assimilated into the existing fleet to take advantage of skills that already exist to service, maintain and repair current vehicles. This in turn means that life cycle costs can be effectively maintained at similar levels to standard Toyota 4x4 vehicles.
