Plasan’s Stinger optionally manned light combat vehicle cornered plenty of attention at the IDEX 2021 defense expo.

Showcased by the International Golden Group (IGG), the Stinger is a 6.8-ton vehicle based on a standard High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) chassis. Designed for extreme maneuverability off-road and on the road, including narrow streets in urban areas, the vehicle is configured with a highly protected capsule meeting STANAG 4560 Vol1 Level 4.

According to company officials, the Stinger is designed to serve in various mission profiles such as Urban Warfare Law Enforcement, Peace Keeping Operations, Homeland Security, Military and Border Patrol.

Capable of accommodating three crew members, the Stinger can be configured with two remotely controlled weapon stations. The vehicle also mounts multiple missile launchers adding unprecedented firepower for a vehicle of this class. The vehicle is equipped with an electronic control unit controlling the electric steering, gear, and pedal actuators that can be activated quickly.
