PARS III 6×6 and PARS III 8X8 have been developed with a special emphasis on mobility, protection, payload, and growth potential. The vehicles are equipped with the latest designs and cutting edge technologies with a focus on the performance and durability of modern military operational requirements.
Vehicles are powered by a diesel engine. The powerpack consists of a water cooled diesel engine, coupled with a fully automatic transmission which generates a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h. Thanks to the engine layout and favored balanced design, the vehicle has almost equal axle loads. The vehicles has 6×6 and 8X8 driving characteristics, and all of their axles can be locked when necessary. The central tire inflation system allows the driver to adjust the tire pressures to suit different terrain conditions.
The fully independent hydro-pneumatic suspension system, which gives the vehicle the highest wheel travel of its class, and ensures the best road grip under different road conditions.
The PARS III 6×6 and the PARS III 8X8 all-axle steering system gives the vehicles the lowest turning radius in their classes.
The two-man driver’s cab at front of the vehicle offers a 180° horizontal field of vision and a high level of driving safety and comfort. Large glass periscopes, and front driving and maneuver cameras with thermal cameras located on the front and rear of the vehicle give the driver and the commander an even wider field of vision. The door covers, personnel seats, gun holders and interior lighting elements are all designed in such a way that the comfort of the crew is ensured in the vehicle, which can accommodate up to nine personnel.
With range of over 800 km, the vehicles have fuel tanks incorporating special measures to protect against explosion and puncture, and a reserve fuel tank under the armor can be called upon in emergencies.
The vehicle hull can be brought up to the level of protection required by the user thanks to the modular design 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.
PARS III 6X6 vehicle runs ahead of its competitors by offering similar ballistic and mine protections levels with MRAP vehicles while maintaining combat and mobility capabilities of modern armored combat vehicles.
Both vehicles have an integrated air-conditioning system, that even in desert conditions, keep the vehicle’s internal temperature at +25°C.
The modular connection of the vehicle subsystems to the mine-resistant hull ensures the ease of maintenance and replacement. This ease of maintenance and the easy replacement of moving parts and the power transmission systems in particular make the PARS III 6X6 and 8×8 superior to their counterparts. The powerpack architecture, which can be disassembled and reassembled in less than 60 minutes, gives the user the freedom to replace the engine while on the field, providing a remarkable benefit.
Vehicles can be transported through air (A400, C17 & C5), sea, railways or land.
