SISU Unveils GTP 4×4

Modern, Modular Replacement for PASI

 

Finland’s SISU Auto established its military vehicle credentials in the early 1980s with the PASI, an armoured personnel carrier that remains in widespread service today as a result of its robust design and operational efficiency.

Aging PASI fleets are now, however, reaching the end of their planned service lives and Sisu Auto has responded to this by introducing a modern, modular armoured vehicle whose performance eclipses that of its predecessor: the GTP 4×4. The vehicle offers distinct advantages in three separate fundamental capability categories:

  • Mobility: the vehicle is equipped with an independent suspension system and differential locks in each wheel, providing mobility characteristics that will cope with severe off-road terrain or whatever the operational environment might be. Payload in off-road conditions is up to 4,500kg, dependent upon the selected protection level;
  • Versatility: the GTP fulfils a wide variety of operational roles. Separate backbone and crew body structures result in unmatched versatility, and have enabled the development of numerous variants for different operational uses, as well as offering easy maintainability even in field conditions. Interchangeable components and maintainability are also important factors in the vehicle’s life cycle support economy;
  • Survivability: Sisu Auto has gained considerable expertise in armouring solutions during the long history of armoured vehicle deliveries intended for the harshest operational applications. In addition to the vast number of PASIs delivered, armoured SISU 8×8 trucks are also field proven, having served in NATO-led operations in Afghanistan and now in the UN-led mission in Lebanon. The crew survivability of the GTP is based on this expertise and knowledge. A modular structure allows mission-specific protection solutions. Protection levels can be increased with an additional add-on kit or replacement components as necessary.
