The Ministry of Defence is to announce a vehicle partially designed by Formula 1 engineers is to replace the controversial Snatch Land Rover.
The British-designed Ocelot has a V-shaped shell intended to defend against attacks coming from below the carriage.
The patrol vehicle can also be easily dismantled if needs be.
The Land Rover had been criticised for not offering troops in Afghanistan and Iraq enough protection from roadside bombs.
The Ocelot, which was created by Force Protection Europe and Ricardo, a British automotive engineering company, was among several bids competing for the Ministry of Defence contract.
The vehicle, which can weigh 7.5 tonnes when loaded, can reach 50mph in 19.75 seconds.
