Supacat manufactures a range of armoured vehicles. It says that its “HMT vehicle is firmly regarded as the platform of choice for special forces worldwide.” Its HMT400 (Jackal) vehicle was deployed in large numbers by the UK military in Afghanistan.

The company launched its LRV600 (Light Reconnaissance Vehicle), which included a laser guided rocket system, at DSEI 2017. The vehicle is promoted as “ITAR free”, meaning it is not governed by the US regulatory regime and so is easier to export.
