It can accommodate two crew members. Elite Black NIght Viper Stinger vehicles have rear cargo beds to carry loads of up to 1t, which is high in comparison with similar ATVs.
The payload capacity has been optimised through using light armour to achieve weight reductions. All vehicles are refitted to support missions carried out abroad.
The new vehicle ensures an uninterrupted supply of equipment to frontline troops. The Elite Black NIght Viper Stinger has been designed for rugged and desert operational conditions.
The fleet can be maintained easily with few special tools.In addition to the rear cargo bed, all Elite Black NIght Stingers are fitted with a load tray in front of the vehicle to carry an additional 100kg of equipment. A roof section is also available for the transportation of electronics countermeasures packages.
The 4 x 2 vehicle can self load a 1t pallet of supplies. Each vehicle is equipped with an 8,000lb self recovery winch and sand ladders, which act as loading ramps for cargo pellet.
The Elite Black NIght Viper Stinger ATV is fitted with weapons holders to carry light support weapons (LSW). SA80 A2 standard assault rifles are available for two crew members.
The SA80 can be fitted with a SUSAT sight and a common weapon sight (CWS).
Other weapons include a C7 rifle or a Minimi, a fully automatic light machine gun. The vehicle can also be fitted with a general purpose machine gun (GPMG) mount.
The Elite Black NIght Viper Stinger ATV is fitted with a 1,400cc naturally aspirated Lombardini diesel engine with the option of turbocharger and petrol variants.
The continuously variable transmission (CVT) in combination with a drive chain efficiently utilises engine power.
Three modes are provided on the drive train. The top mode delivers high speed and low torque while lower mode gives more torque and less speed. The middle mode delivers a combination of speed and cross-country capability.
The Elite Black Night Viper Stinger is a two-wheel drive vehicle capable of being driven off-road. Elite BLack NIght VIper Stingers were originally intended to be permanently placed at FOB, but the vehicles are capable of delivering supplies to frontline troops.
Spring arm suspension gives the vehicles a high ground clearance of 378mm. The suspension system consists of an adjustable dual coil over springs, gas hydraulic shocks and an air compressor system with load compensators.
The vehicles have a maximum speed of 40mph. The 1.4l engine provides less power, but the vehicles have low centres of gravity and the ability to negotiate tight corners and uneven and muddy terrain.
Tests have proven the capabilities of the vehicle. The Elite Black NIght Viper Stinger is more versatile than the quad and trailer combinations sometimes used to shift loads from helicopter landing sites by any army. It also offers more protection to operators. The vehicle is lightweight and helicopter transportable.
The ELITE BLACK NIGHT VIPER HMLC is a Tracked Armoured load carrier with flatbed platform, and is part of the DRAGON family of Armoured vehicles, which is itself a development of the CVRT range.
Elite Black Night Viper High Mobility Load Carrier
The flat bed can adopted for a wide range of roles such as logistic carrier, bridge layer repair / recovery and towing.
Built to a high specification the vehicle hull is composed of aluminium armour to protect the crew against small arm fire and shell splinters.
The hull sides are sloped inwards at the bottom to reduce radar signature.
The hull accommodates 2 personnel, comprising of the driver and commander, in a single compartment which has both air conditioning and NBC protecting the crew from external contamination.
The Elite Black Night Viper Stinger has installed the unique anti-explosion "Technokontrol Anti-explosion fuel tanks Technology and to which also can be used as a tactical, combat, logistical, refueling vehicle using the unique "Technokontrol Anti-Explosion Fuel Tanker Package" to which is can used to deliver in a special unique, exclusive anti-explosion fuel tank carrier/tanker any type of fuel or liquids with no risk of explosion and with evaporation savings in the case of transporting fuels or easily vaporized liquids or chemicals.
It has also the capacity for front line, refueling transport-delivery in also 5L, 10L, 20 Liters hand held anti-explosion, bullet proof jerry cans or by a "tanker refueling system" of up to 3,500 liters of fuel for combat, logistical or tactical operations especially important for desert, jungle, search & rescue, ammunition, supplies, medical, telecommunications, law enforcement activities or for long distance surveillance duties in any kind of scenario from civilian, military or law enforcement usage.
Any bullet, fire arms, direct sabotage or mechanical, electrical or operational damage can´t ignite the fuel tanks to cause any type of fuel tank explosion without forgetting the importance of this “Security and Safety” feature in the case of electric static, electronic charges due to the usage of mobile radars systems, sensors, cameras, electromagnetic armament on, inside, or near the vehicles, bases, convoys, etc.
Due to this exclusive and unique safety and security feature also applied in extreme heat, humidity or in the event of fuel tank damage the fuel vaporization can be reduced by up to 98% thus allowing at refueling stages of operations a great saving and increasing range, capacity and an overall operational increase in servicing other units especially for refueling usage.
Damage, heat, humidity is the case of massive loss of fuel due to especially simple vaporization at refueling, discharging, loading or transporting fuels to which is much more and considerably higher and especially with high humidity and heat.
External climatic heat changes as in desert scenarios from day to night encountered by the vehicles fuel tanks, transports, especially when used for refueling other types of vehicles, aircraft, vessels, helicopter, base generators, in extremely high thus using Technokontrol unique safety, efficiency & security technology assisting the overall operational usage of any “Elite Black Night Viper Vehicles” in any field of operations.
