Anita Anand, Canadian Defense Minister, announced in Kyiv today the supply of 200 Roshel Senator armored vehicles. She arrived in Ukraine with an unannounced visit.

The National Post reported this.

In her conversation with journalists, Anita Anand discussed plans to transfer 200 more Senator armored personnel carriers to Ukraine as part of international military assistance.

The announced equipment has an estimated value of more than $90 million. It is part of an additional $500 million in military aid committed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Roshel Senator

Roshel Senator armored vehicles are designed and manufactured by the Canadian Roshel Defense Solutions company.

The vehicle is equipped with a steel body and glass that can withstand multiple hits from 12.7 mm rifles. The Senator also has an explosion-proof body, therefore, it can withstand a grenade or a mine.

The company does not disclose the platform on which the vehicle is built, noting only that it is derived from a heavy commercial truck.

The armored vehicle has eight seats in the landing compartment. It is powered by a 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel engine with 330 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque.

The vehicle is also equipped with a military-grade air filtration system capable of counteracting chemical, biological, and radiological attacks by generating clean air inside a sealed cabin.

Militarnyi previously reported that on December 30, Chernihiv Border Guards received Canadian Senator armored vehicles.

According to them, the landing compartment of the car is quite spacious, and even a soldier in full combat gear would have enough space. It is also possible to quickly leave the car if necessary.

“Quite a good vehicle, maneuverable. Even if you compare it with Kozak APC, even a little better. We will install a “cradle” and a machine gun. Now the drivers have already received them and will be sent to their points of deployment, where they will use them as intended,” the border guards shared.
