The vehicle can accommodate up to nine personnel together with their equipment are designed to ensure exceptional payload capacity and drive comfort.

With a range of over 800 km, the PARS III 6×6 Armoured Fire Support Vehicle is equipped with fuel tanks featuring special precautions against explosions and punctures. Additionally, a spare fuel tank is located under the armour for emergency use. Run flats placed inside the wheels enable the vehicle to continue travelling even with flat tyres.

The hull of the PARS III 6×6 can be tailored to the desired level of protection thanks to its modular armour systems. Specifically, designed hull form, underbelly structure, base plates, and mine-protected seats provide enhanced protection against high-level of mine threats for the personnel.

The air conditioning system integrated into the PARS III 6×6 offers significant advantages to its users. One notable distinction from its counterparts is its ability to maintain the vehicle’s indoor temperature at +25°C, even in tropical climates. The vehicle is equipped with a 30mm TEBER-II Remote Controlled Turret (RCT) designed by FNSS.

TEBER-II 30/40 Remote Controlled Turret (RCT)

The turret is equipped with a 30mm dual-feed automatic cannon. The existing 30mm gun barrel can be replaced with a 40mm barrel while preserving the main components and the stock. This adaptable weapon system option enables users to enhance firepower easily and as required. Additionally, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun is mounted alongside the main gun.

Various anti-tank missile systems can also be seamlessly integrated into the TEBER-II 30/40 RCT system. Two ready-to-fire anti-tank missiles are supported by a fire control system integrated into the turret. This capability enables the vehicle to effectively engage a wide range of threats at distances exceeding four kilometres.

The turret is equipped with an independent remote-controlled weapon system (RCWS) that can adjust firing angles both upwards and downwards. The elevation angle of this system, which is compatible with either a 7.62mm or 5.56mm machine gun, is effective against threats positioned at elevated points (such as buildings, rooftops, etc.) in urban environments, as well as drones approaching from high angles. Additionally, this system can function as the commander’s independent sighting system for ‘hunter-killer’ capabilities.

In addition to the TEBER-II 30/40 RCT, the vehicle can also be equipped with manned or remotely controlled turrets featuring a range of armaments, including 7.62mm and 12.7mm machine guns, 25mm and 35mm automatic cannons, 40mm automatic grenade launchers, 90mm cannons, and various types of anti-tank systems.
