Canadian Inkas Superior APC/AMEV 4×4 Can Tackle Any Terrain In Any Weather

Canada-based Inkas doesn’t just build armored variants of regular passenger vehicles. It also manufactures some of the world’s toughest vehicles for military and law-enforcing agencies.

Their latest product is the Superior Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) / Armored Medical Evacuation Vehicle (AMEV). The long name designates a multipurpose vehicle created to tackle hostile environments and rough terrains while keeping those aboard safe thanks to its Ballistic Level 7 armor.

It’s specifically built to transport personnel and aid for search and rescue operations, in any terrain. Therefore, the targeted clientele includes law enforcement, paramilitary, and peacekeeping operations. The Inkas Superior can transport up to 14 personnel or up to 2 personnel and 6 wounded passengers. Furthermore, its modular platform enables the fitting of an array of additional components for specific uses.

Some of the vehicle’s unique features include a hydraulic rear ramp system that facilitates the loading of wounded passengers, as well as an upgraded optics package with PTZ infrared and thermal imaging. The intimidating 4×4 also packs drivetrain and suspension modifications that purportedly allow it to operate without a problem in all conditions.

Powering the 33,000-lb (14,968-kg) monster is an inline six-cylinder diesel engine that produces 330 hp and 950 lb-ft (1,286 Nm) of torque. The power plant helps the Inkas Superior APC / AMEV reach a tested top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).

The vehicle also packs a fifth-generation Allison 3000 push-button transmission, 10,000lb-ft (13,543Nm) rated transfer case and an electro-hydraulic fuel system. As a result of all this equipment, Inkas claims the Superior outperforms other similarly-sized vehicles “in terms of both mobility and dependability.”

    Well it’s an APC after all. And if they need to carry cargo I’m pretty sure they customize it to suit their needs.

  • WELL THAT’S BUTCH.

    Cargo? It’s not a delivery van. Armed officers are the ‘cargo’, hence the seats.

  • Sometimes I wonder if CS is car site or military news site.

    • Mr. EP9

      If you see articles talking about multi-million dollar contracts for various vehicles and shows that feature the latest in military hardware, weaponry, and other equipment etc…..you’ll have your answer.

  • Most military vehicle are, since they put function over aesthetics.

    The reason why they put the seat in the middle is that in case of an attack, the passenger won’t get physical injury by hitting the metal bits, also in case of armor penetration, it minimizes the sharpnel injury..

      The seats are like that so the passengers,in case of attack,can use their own weapons thru the gun ports under the windows,besides what you said about shrapnel,it gives the occupants a better situational awareness rather than just staring at each other’s mugs.

    I’m calling BS on their “Any Terrain In Any Weather” claim. Looking at how low that thing is and how far down it’s solid rear axel hangs it seems like it could easily get stuck in mud or deep snow.

    The music was more stimulating than any of the footage, and it can apparently drive at the same speed as their automated lift gate and windshield screens. Talk about putting investors to sleep at this presentation. 33,000 pounds and it has similar power to that of a diesel Dodge 2500? That’s like putting a trolling motor on the QE2.
