Streit partners with SHERP on unique vehicle

A SHERP all terrain vehicle.The Streit Group has partnered with SHERP on its unique all-terrain vehicle designed for emergency and rapid action tasks, showcasing the vehicle at the Eurosatory exhibition.

The 4x4 SHERP vehicle has been designed to operate in all terrains, including swamps, ice, snow, rocky mountains, forests etc. It is able to climb out of water and onto ice, ascend a step of one meter in height and maintain its position at critical inclinations.

SHERP has high buoyancy potential: each wheel has a volume of 800 litres and the body is hermetically sealed along with a unique wheel pumping system. It has a carrying capacity of 1 000 kg and is able to swim when fully loaded.

SHERP is powered by a Japanese Kubota four cylinder turbodiesel V-1505t engine with a capacity of 1.5 litres and developing 44 hp, which is enough to carry its aluminium light-weight body, which can be retrofitted with armour if needed. Top speed is around 40 km/h on land and 6 km/h in water.

Streit displayed the SHERP vehicle at the recent Eurosatory exhibition in Paris, which attracted a lot of attention due to its unusual design and huge tyres.

The vehicle is manufactured in Russia, with mass production starting in 2015.
