The British automaker Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations, Armoured Range Rover Sentinel has been caught on camera in India. Based on the standard wheelbase Range Rover Autobiography, it was first launched last year in the global market and also showcased at Defexpo 2016. The JLR's mobile fortress can stave off 7.62 mm high velocity, armour piercing incendiary bullets, and 15 kg Trinitrotoluene (TNT) blasts. Besides, it can also protect occupants against DM51 grenade explosions from above the roof as well as beneath the floor.

What's interesting is its specially developed six-piece armoured passenger cell that is made of super-high-strength steel to take the occupants away from all the situations. Moreover, the carmaker has also added a multi-laminated bullet-proof armour privacy glass against the regular one.
