The Terrier LT-79 has been completely built from the ground up to be the leading light body on frame Toyota 79-based light-APC on the market.  The Terrier has undergone strenuous performance testing which has pushed the limits on suspension, handling, acceleration and maneuverability and allowed us to strategically mate the best aftermarket and OEM components for the task.  We can confidently say that our Terrier APC will outperform any Land Cruiser-based APC on the market today in both on and off-road testing.


The Terrier LT-79 comes standard in a three-door configuration which offers a 2+6 seating arrangement.  Additionally variants are available in 5-door configurations as well as light surveillance, remote firing post (with RWS capability) and aircraft assault platforms which can be customized for any operational requirements. Due to it’s highly customizable nature, the Terrier is popular with law enforcement, paramilitary, NGO and military clientele and can support a wide array of uses in many other industries.


The standard ballistic and blast protection of STANAG 4569 level I ensures survivability in most hostile environments.  From those specific regions which require a higher level of ballistic protection, the Terrier can be equipped with lightweight applique armor increasing to STANAG 4569 level II while maintaining much of the original payload capacity.
