Rock”: Urban Combat Dominance
In today’s uncertain world, Ama-Tsu-Mara is dedicated to bringing
you the latest and best in rugged, tough, and economical combat
The Granite Global Services Granite APC-1 (nicknamed “The Rock”)
armored personnel carrier is the latest and best Urban Fighting
Vehicle. Designed by Navy Seal Reservist Chris Berman, “The Rock” is
built to offer unmatched speed, protection, and combat effectiveness.
No other vehicle is so specifically designed for urban warfare,
tailored to meet and exceed the demands of the most rigorous urban
environments. The modest price ($200,000) puts it in a class of
Armored Excellence: Armored to a fare-thee-well,
The Rock sports three layers of all-over (top, sides, front, back,
and floorboards) advanced armor as well as ballistic glass windows.
This armor configuration enables the Rock to shrug off AK-47 rounds
and even IED explosions. The Rock’s “bolt-on” armor system means
that adding additional layers of armor (such as the popular RPG
screen) is quick and painless.
Gap-free coverage: Unlike our competitors, the
windows are set in specially-designed frames that leave no gap
for a “Golden Bullet” to penetrate the cab.
Room to ride: The Rock can seat up to 10 combat-kitted
troops, ammo and all, in comfort and safety, without affecting
the vehicle’s performance.
Speed to get in and get out: The Rock features
rapid acceleration, a top speed of 95 MPH and a cruising speed
of 80 MPH. Whether speeding to the rescue or redeploying from hostile
territory, the Rock gets you there in minimal time.
Built for combat: The Rock sports two roof turrets
with belt-fed machine guns and six armored windows with spring
loaded gun-ports, arranged in all-round firing positions. There
are no blind spots on this combat monster.
Tire damage is no problem: All tires are fitted
with Run Flat Inserts, allowing full functionality when damaged
by hostile fire. Punctured tires can be replaced quickly by one
team member, allowing other crew members to remain in overwatch-
an essential activity in an unsecured area.
Size matters: Unlike most competitors, our crew
cab is built to allow the driver, front passenger, and front gunner
to exchange positions quickly and easily.
Climate controlled: The Rock is fully air-conditioned
and carries an onboard auxiliary generator, capable of powering
the climate system for up to 8 hours.
Rapid Replacement: The ballistic glass is quickly
and easily replaced by any end user- no expensive service stops
Stock Chassis: The Rock is built on a standard
Ford F-550 chassis, with an unmodified transmission and engine.
Replacement parts can be purchased cheaply and easily, in any auto-parts
store. In addition, any Ford dealership can service or replace
these standard parts, lowering maintenance costs and widening the
possible deployment zone. (Of course, worldwide top-of-the-line
service can be had wherever Ama-Tsu-Mara vehicles are sold.)
Customized for your needs: Each Granite APC is
custom-built on a Ford F-550 chassis, enabling us to build the
vehicle to your exacting specifications. The build time on these
high-powered urban vehicles is measured in mere weeks, not months.
