The Cougar is an armoured fighting vehicle designed to be resistant to anti-vehicle mines and improvised munitions. It is a family of armoured vehicles produced by Force Protection Inc, which manufactures ballistic and mine-protected vehicles. The automotives are integrated by Spartan Motors. These specialty vehicles are protected against small arms, land mines and IEDs using a combination of design features and materials to protect both the crew and engine compartment against a wide range of attacks. A monocoque type, V-shaped hull extends to the engine bay and serves to direct the blast away from under the vehicle. The dual air-conditioners help keep heavily dressed troops from overheating in temperatures over 100 F (38 C).
The Cougar is powered by a 6-cylinder Caterpillar C-7 diesel engine developing 330 bhp at 2.200 rpm. The engine is coupled to an 5-speed Allison SP-3500 automatic transmission.
