As with its predecessors, this vehicle was previously used for the secure transport of high value goods and cash within the UK.

New uprated armour materials have been supplied by one the UK’s leading specialist armour material manufacturers, ASL GRP. These products have been installed to the vehicle to improve their protection levels for the drivers and aid workers who will potentially need to contend with the projectiles, explosives and gunfire that may be encountered in a conflict situation. As further protection for the aid workers, protective equipment supplier Rezizt ltd has provided personal armour for the effort.

The helmets and vests supplied by Rezizt will be worn by the aid workers as they travel into potentially dangerous areas and situations.

Donations towards the aid effort are still being accepted at Fleet Service Limited, to be handled by Polish Association Gloucestershire.
