INKAS® Armored Vehicle Manufacturing is proud to announce a strategically important collaboration with Force Development Services (FDS) – fusing the industry’s most reliable heavy-capacity tactical intervention system with INKAS® globally-renowned armored vehicles to create a lineup of highly capable Armored Tactical Intervention Vehicles. This collaboration will produce vehicle-mounted and rapidly deployable intervention capability that delivers unparalleled performance in mission-critical operations across a multitude of scenarios. As a complete system that can be deployed and operated directly from the vehicle, INKAS® Armored Tactical Intervention Vehicles eliminate the need for security forces to await secondary support vehicles prior to acting, this enables tactical teams to respond significantly faster in time-sensitive situations that involve hostages, criminals, terrorists, or active emergencies where lives may be at risk. Designed specifically for Counter Terror teams, the FDS Vehicle Borne Intervention Systems have been operationally proven for over two decades and are known to enable users to achieve successful outcomes especially in extremely demanding scenarios.
Claire Hemmings, CEO of Force Development Services said. “We are absolutely delighted that the collaboration has been such a success. Working closely together, the teams have created a very special capability that will equip users with a vital competitive advantage”.

The FDS tactical intervention systems are an excellent fit within the INKAS® special purpose vehicle lineup and will enhance the capabilities of the tactical teams and special forces that have entrusted us for over two decades,” said Margarita Simkin, Chairwoman and Co-Founder of INKAS®.
This armored tactical intervention vehicle is equipped with a vertical assault ramp system tested by special units in many countries worldwide. The system is mounted on the vehicle which can be raised and lowered. It is suitable for special operations – storming buildings, airplanes, buses, rail vehicles, overcoming fences, or as positions for snipers. Designed to be a reliable secure transport and sturdy support for the vertical assault ramp. This vehicle is crafted-to-order and can be customized both internally and externally in order to accommodate a specific need. INKAS® has engineered this vehicle to be a reliable bulletproof SUV for various operations. The vehicle’s high suspension allows it to take on numerous types of terrains regardless of mission.
