The new member of the PARS family, the PARS 6×6 SCOUT, takes its name from the silent, agile and predatory leopard that once roamed in Anatolia. This special purpose tactical wheeled vehicle is equipped with modern technologies providing strategic advantages to its user, including a high situational awareness feature that is designed especially for reconnaissance and internal security operations.
The PARS 6X6 SCOUT has a power-to-weight ratio of 25-30 Hp/ton, driven by a diesel engine. The PARS 6X6 SCOUT Powerpack consists of a diesel engine, coupled with a fully automatic transmission which generates a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h and is capable of maneuvering on 60% vertical and 30% horizontal gradients, climbing 60 cm-high obstacles and crossing 120 cm-wide trenches. Thanks to the engine layout and favored balanced design, the vehicle’s axle loads are almost equal. This design approach provides the vehicle with the ability to move comfortably even on loose and soft terrain, while also providing increased road-holding at high speeds and short braking distances. The vehicle has 6X6 and 6X4 driving characteristics, and all of its axles can be locked if required. The central tire inflation system allows the driver to adjust tire pressures to suit different terrains, and the independent height-adjustable hydro-pneumatic suspension system provides the best road holding for different road conditions.
PARS 6X6 SCOUT is optionally amphibious if required by the user.
The two-man cab at the front of the vehicle is protected by ballistic glass and provides a 230° horizontal field of vision, high driving safety, situational awareness and comfort.
The large ballistic glass located at the driver’s compartment, and the day/night cameras located in rear and front sides give the driver and commander a wide field of vision. Inside the vehicle, the door covers, personnel seats, infantry rifle holders and interior lighting elements are designed to provide comfort to the vehicle personnel.
The PARS 6X6 SCOUT has a range of over 600 km, and its fuel tanks are incorporated with special protective measures against explosion and puncture. The vehicle is fitted with run-flat tires and has a self-recovery winch.
The PARS 6X6 SCOUT hull can be brought to the level of protection required by the user thanks to its modular designed armor system. The hull form, underbelly structure, base plates and specially developed mine-resistant seats are designed to protect personnel against high-level mine threats.
The modular connection of the vehicle subsystems to its mine-resistant hull ensures the ease of maintenance and replacement, and it is this ease of maintenance, replacement of moving parts and power transmission systems in particular that makes it superior to its counterparts.
