What’s So Special About This Discovery?

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Apr 17, 2009 By: Al R. Budde Category: Land Rover News

It’s got Terrain Response™, a 6-speed automatic, air conditioning, and oh yes, it can stop a bullet from a high velocity assault rifle.

Armored Discovery

To look at it, you’d never suspect that this Discovery is any different from any other. No, to appreciate just how different this Discovery is, you’d have to shoot it. Or toss a hand grenade under it. Then you’d have one of those “aha” moments: this Discovery must be armored. 

And armored it is, with European Standard EN 1522 level FB 6 ballistic protection, to be precise. It is capable of protecting its occupants from DM 51 grenades, should one be tossed indiscriminately beneath it, and a 15kg blast device from a distance of three meters off any side. The glass is glazed (the windows do not move), the tires run flat, there’s a fuel cut-off override system and the whole thing sits on a suspension system that – along with the brakes - has been thoughtfully modified to accommodate the extra mass you’d expect with armor plating all around. 

“The broad range of capabilities provided by the new Discovery Armored make it the ideal choice for government agencies, security organizations and businesses whose employees are exposed to high-risk locations,” says John C Wright, Land Rover’s manager, Government and Direct Sales. “The Discovery has been carefully engineered to help enable occupants to travel across challenging terrains with confidence.”

And, of course, there is service after the sale. Owners get a full three year, 80,000 km factory warranty, access to a complete driver training program and even a dedicated service technician who will provide a number of service calls each year. 

“Yes, I have a number of bullet holes I’d like you to touch up for me, thanks.”
