International Armored Group is a quality conscious armored vehicle manufacturer with over 20 years of experience specializing in the fields of design, engineering, prototyping and manufacturing of armored commercial and tactical vehicles, armored components, and ballistic glass and framing systems, with locations in the United States of America, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Iraq and Pakistan.
We have grown substantially over the years and have become one of the most technologically advanced armored vehicle manufacturers in the world.
IAG’s engineering department has over 60 years of combined experience in design and manufacturing of armored vehicles. Our state-of-the-art production facilities allow the teams of highly skilled engineers and technicians to convert any vehicle platform into a fully re-engineered protective vehicle. These include VIP Protection, Luxury & Operational SUVs and cars, Police and Law Enforcement, Pickups & Trucks, Ambulances, Tactical and Armored Personnel Carriers, Anti-Riot vehicles and Cash-in-Transit vehicles.
IAG’s core competency is the ability to engineer and design vehicle armoring solutions providing optimal survivability and reliability, while maintaining superior driving dynamics and performance. We take great pride in producing the most well-protected, low-profile armored vehicles possible. As proof of our company’s capabilities, in April of 2010 International Armored Group became one of the world’s first armored vehicle manufacturers to successfully certify an armored vehicle under the new VPAM BRV2009 standard, the IAG VR7 Toyota Land Cruiser Convoy®, certified by Beschussamt Mellrichstadt in Germany. The Toyota Land Cruiser Convoy® was tested against both ballistic and blast attacks and survived 430 high powered rifle shots, as well as detonations of DM51 German hand grenades, HG85 Swiss fragmentation grenades, DM31 anti-personnel mine and a 12.5kg PETN (17kg TNT equivalent) side blast attack without any deformation. In addition to this in 2018 IAG successfully completed the certification of STANAG Level II blast certification on our VR7 certified Toyota Land Cruiser 200 Convoy, and STANAG Level II and IIIA on our Guardian Xtreme MRAP 4x4. We continuously strive to design and manufacture the safest possible armored vehicles and this certification is yet another testament to that promise.
In addition to low profile light armored vehicles, IAG offers a wide range of Armored Personnel Carriers and Anti-Riot vehicles. These APCs are designed to fill the gap between the much more expensive and heavy MRAPs and low profile, light armored vehicles. IAG APC lineup includes the Guardian, Sentinel, Jaws, Sentry and Rhino Armored Personnel Carriers. All the APC’s can be armored up to NIJ IV / CEN B7.
IAG’s global footprint enables us to supply North American, European, Gulf Country (GCC) and Right-Hand drive type vehicles. We have access to an extensive range of chassis that can operate in harsh temperature environments and low quality fuel. IAG’s production plants are strategically located near major sea and air ports allowing our experienced logistics team to transport our armored vehicles worldwide.
