A team of engineers from Pearson Engineering are now supporting field tests of a specialised variant of the Guarani 6x6 in Brazil.
The prototype VBE Eng variants of the 6×6 Guarani have been configured to allow front end equipment from Pearson Engineering to be integrated quickly and easily. The set-up, based on system integration with the vehicle’s hydraulic and electrical supply, and the addition of a Vehicle Integration Kit, will allow the Guarani 6×6 to be rapidly configured in the future to accept different types of mobility, counter-mobility and survivability equipment, whenever the mission requires it.
The team in Brazil are currently supporting the integration of an Excavator Manipulator Arm, Loader Bucket Attachment and General Purpose Dozer Blade.
The project, which commenced in 2020, was paused as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic with agreement from all parties, and was resumed in August of this year, progressing to field tests at the São Paulo War Arsenal (AGSP).
Pearson Engineering’s range of equipment for lightweight vehicles has extended in recent years, in keeping with their popularity around the world. Vehicles such as Boxer, Piranha, PARS and Stryker can now be deployed with the following:
