STC Delta unveils new armoured multi-role vehicle
Scientific-Technical Center “DELTA” (located in Tbilisi, Georgia) has unveiled new variant of its Didgori armored multi-role vehicle during celebrations for Independence Day on May 26 which was the 100th anniversary of the creation of the First Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1918.
Unveiled at an exhibition in Freedom Square in Tbilisi, the new “pick-and-pop” version of the famous Georgian armored vehicle Didgori with the wheel arrangement 4×4, is produced by the state military scientific and technical center “Delta” of the Ministry of Defense of Georgia.
It is reported that this version of Didgori is developed on the basis of the armored medical evacuation machine AMEV (which was delivered to Saudi Arabia in 2016) based on the construction of the armored vehicle Didgori 2.
The base of the vehicle is manufactured from the layer of armoured steel – while the protection level is further enhanced by an add on armour panels – which can be easily removed or replaced – for replacement of damaged panes, upgrade/downgrade of vehicle protection level etc.
Armour plates provide protection from 7.62 calibre armour-piercing bullets shot from near distance and artillery shell fragments.
The new variant of the Didgori armoured vehicle is designed mainly for reconnaissance and patrolling, has a capacity of five people and is equipped with a cargo compartment at the rear.
