Plasan's Stinger light combat vehicle is a 6.8-ton vehicle based on a standard HMMWV chassis, configured with a highly protected capsule meeting STANAG 4560 Vol1 Level 4, a protection level rarely accommodated by vehicles at this weight class. The 4x4 vehicle is designed for extreme maneuverability off-road and on the road, including narrow streets in urban areas.
With new survivability solutions, including advanced ERA against kinetic and chemical energy threats, passive armor stopping threats beyond the medium caliber level, and blast protection from mines and IEDs, Plasan's expertise become essential for combat vehicle manufacturers producing efficient designs of next-generation platforms such as the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV).

Such armored vehicles are required to withstand medium caliber cannon threat levels and maintain functionality.
Plasan expands the Sandcat family with the introduction of the 4 GEN Sandcat. The new generation uses a monocoque hull, that eliminates the need for the Ford 550 frame, although retaining the automotive parts of the heavy-duty commercial vehicle.
