The floor of the vehicle is designed to defeat the following threat:

Armouring design: 

  • The armouring is a complete self-supporting structure grafted onto the base vehicle chassis in place of the original bodywork creating a unitary protection cell for the passengers. 
  • The main armour shell provides overlap for all the secondary armour components such as the doors and the windows, roof hatches, gun-ports etc. 
  • Double floor protection for improved blast resistance 
  • Heavy-duty hinges for all the opening elements (doors, hatches). 
  • Hinges with in-built door-stop. 
  • Fuel-tank(s) protected with steel armour-plates. 
  • Full engine compartment protection, including bonnet.
  • All welded joints produced using a special welding technique limiting the heat- transfer to the armour steel around the weld, and covered with non-heat- affected overlaps. 

TYGRA has a V-shaped hull. It withstands blasts equivalent to 8 kg of TNT anywhere under the hull. Hull provides protection against 7.62x39 mm armor-piercing rounds.
Vehicle can be fitted with remotely controlled weapon module. Typically these modules are armed with 7.62-mm or 12.7-mm machine guns.
The dual air-conditioners of TYGRA help keep heavily dressed troops from overheating in high temperatures of the dessert.
