The Tiger armored vehicle is manufactured by the Chinese defense enterprise Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Manufacturing.
Tiger armored vehicle was demonstrated for the first time at the Eurosatory-2012 international exhibition.
It is created on the basis of an off-road truck, thanks to which it has high mobility in off-road conditions. The vehicle provides protection against 7.62mm bullets.
The armored vehicle can accommodate up to 10 people, including the driver. The Tiger equipped with a 200 hp Cummins ISDE200-30 diesel engine.

The Tiger 4×4 is suitable for a wide range of tasks as an ambulance, command post and as well as law enforcement vehicle.
