The Armored Group has just completed a Mercedes Maybach using TAGLight composite, which is 63% lighter than conventional ballistic steel.
January 19, 2014 (Newswire.com) - The Armored Group (TAG) has just announced the completion of a new armored Maybach 57S, which was developed for a high net-worth individual. Though this was the first "up armored" Maybach developed using TAGLight composite. This composite is 63% lighter than conventional ballistic steel. The results were so impressive that it has been added to The Armored Group's inventory and available to all clients who need this level of protection. The process was done with a goal of maintaining the interior and exterior details of the vehicle; upon completion the armored vehicle is indistinguishable from the OEM vehicle. TAG's ultra-light composite armored package was used for the Maybach and took approximately 7 weeks from start to completion.
The Maybach will accommodate a driver and one passenger in the front and two passengers in the back. This particular vehicle was created for a high-profile individual in an African country.
"The Maybach is just another of the unique projects that The Armored Group has been tasked with developing. Our team is very specialized; they are experts in what they do. They face numerous challenges combining the protection required while not losing the integrity, design and performance elements of the vehicles," said Robert Pazderka, owner of The Armored Group. "As we receive more and more requests for both innovative personal security as well as SWAT and law enforcement vehicles, our dedicated team is tasked with finding solutions to meet their needs—while expanding the companys' inventory of vehicles.
TAG also has a complete non-armored specialty vehicle division. The company builds several different types of vehicles used for serving warrants, conducting raids and transporting people. Their line of Rapid Deployment Vehicles (RDV) is NTOA tested and recommended. Other TAG vehicles are used for Hostage Negotiators, EOD, Command Canters, Crime Scene investigations, and many others.
