RMA Special Vehicles – Global



The RMA Special Vehicles Light Armored Tactical Pickup has been developed for defence and security operations. Equipped with UHF and VHF antennas, two-way radio, PA system, mesh window and light protection, a front bull bar with electric winch and driving lights, and beefed-up suspension and brakes, this pickup is ready for action.

Silent Mode

When a mission depends on stealth, it is critical not to be heard or seen. The silent mode transitions the power source from the combustion engine to the electric motor fitted on the rear driveline and powered by battery. This emits no engine sound or engine heat. Silent Mode doesn’t impact the internal combustion engine operation at all, and when needed, the engine can be quickly restarted.

The electric motor propels the vehicle at speeds up to 20 km/hour, but higher speeds are possible on request, and the range is scalable by various battery sizes and ranges from 2-30 kilometres.

3500 kg Suspension 

The suspension upgrade to 3500 kg Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) expands the operational uses of the vehicle and ensures enhanced handling and long-term durability under heavy loads and extreme driving conditions. Proven and validated with the Australian Design Rules, the strictest GVM upgrade regulations, it prevents fading and ageing of the damping system in regular heavy operating conditions. It adds to safety by stabilising and levelling the vehicle and maintains ride and drive quality by stiffening the suspension system. The upgraded hot rolled front foil was designed for high load and long life, while heavy-duty multi-leaf rear suspension was designed for high load and minimum stress. The twin-tube foam cell dampers front and rear plus heavy-duty rubber and polyurethane bushes all increase stability and lifespan. 

The entire upgrade then undergoes extensive testing and tuning to meet or exceed the OEM dynamics. Both the ABS and ESP are tested and validated to maintain function with the new GVM. 

JP 8 Fuel Conversion

This allows the Ranger SV to run on all grades of diesel and even jet fuel. During the conversion, we replace the catalytic converter with a non-catalytic muffler system. The Exhaust Gas Return valve is blocked to prevent return exhaust from entering the EGR cooler, while the cooler itself remains in place. The conversion is also available in a hot climate option. 

Software updates include recalibration of the Engine Control Unit (ECU) to deactivate the EGR sensor and delete the error codes from appearing. The recalibrated ECU also allows it to manage operations while the vehicle runs on various non-diesel fuels e.g. F 63 and JP 8.
