Denel will display RG21 mine-protected vehicle, which is capable to withstand a 21kg blast under any wheel at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEi 2015).

The 4X4 vehicle can also with stand a 14kg charge under hull, the company announced Wednesday.

The South African company designed the 4x4 vehicle's appearance less-aggressive than most military vehicles and is ideally suited to be utilised in internal security roles. However, it still provides all round protection against rifle fire and can withstand a 21kg blast under any wheel.

The Denel Land Systems will display its modular combat turret variants equipped with the locally-developed GI-30 rapid-fire CamGun and the M10 60mm breech-loading long-range mortar. The GI-30 has an effective range of 4 000 metres and can fire up to 100 round per minute.

The display also includes the Personal Area Weapon – PAW – manufactured by Denel PMP. It is an ideal weapon for modern infantry units on the move, including paratroopers and special forces. Moreover, It can be carried and fired by a single soldier and is most effective against high-value targets such as light-armoured vehicles, thin-skinned transport and machine gun nests.

The company will also display the Mokopa precision-guided missile with a range of more than 10km. The Denel Dynamics' Makopa is highly rated for its accuracy and explosive power. The missile is being integrated on the AgustaWestland Super Lynx 300 helicopter and recently completed a launch clearance trial.

Even though Mokopa was initially as an air-to-ground missile, its latest versions can now be fired from a variety of launch platforms such as land vehicles, shore battery installations and naval vessels.
