The Pars İzci armored personnel carrier will be produced on 6X6 and 8X8 chassis in five modifications. It will go into service with the gendarmerie forces and the Turkish army. There is no information about the weapons.


At the first stage, FNSS will supply 100 armored vehicles for two law enforcement agencies. The first pre-production armored personnel carriers should arrive as early as 2022; in total, 36 months are given to fulfill the contract.

In general, the project is designed for 36 months. The first armored personnel carriers will be used by the army and gendarmerie as early as 2022

It is emphasized that this is the first armored personnel carrier on which a Turkish engine manufactured by TÜMOSAN with a capacity of 450 hp is installed.

    The first contract for the supply of Pars was signed in 2016, with Oman, for 172 armored vehicles in 13 different configurations. The contract is estimated at approximately $ 500 million.
    There is an interesting modification with a 120-mm mortar, it has automatic loading.

    And such armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles in the series of type 2. The second Otokar ARMA is currently being tested by Kazakhstan.

    Is the 6x6 version of the stern too far out?

      with such a high location it is not at all critical

    The glazed cockpit is five. Is that to drive the protesters and Kurds, who do not even have thirty.

      In general, if there are 30, then what's the difference? Of all the armored personnel carriers, only the German Boxer has a booking of 30k or more. And then, probably with classic shells. For example, the BTR-82AT, which has no analogues in the version of additional protection, holds 12,7 of ours and NATO in the forehead and is limited to the sides. KPVT in Toyota punches the newest BTR-82AT head-on at a kilometer.

        Shoot from a wheeled chassis from a mortar as much as 120mm, as if the bottom in the "cabin" of the armored personnel carrier vomited

            With a humvi 120 mm shoots at the armored personnel carrier, there are no questions at all.

            The Turks put this mortar on the MRAP

          Here the most incomprehensible thing is why a large mortar should be installed on a wheeled chassis? In this form, it begins to compete with multiple launch rocket systems and loses this competition.

        KPVT, in general, is not an easy thing. The cartridge was originally used for PT rifles.

        The striker also has 30mm protection. With additional booking, of course. Both the Boxer and Striker do not have half frontal glazing. And to cite the BTR-80 as an example is already somehow rotten. Do you know when it was designed and how it was supposed to be used? Completely outdated for the modern battlefield. The boomerang will also hold the cannon in the forehead as well as the striker with additional. reservations, which are simply hinged blocks.

    Well done Turks. And they have a diesel engine of 450 hp and an armored personnel carrier and a mortar. And the design is beautiful.

      The design, yes, the driver must have a good view, and the mortar is lightweight, although it is automatic, because the floor in the armored personnel carrier keeps recoil, if instead of it we put the type of our 2B23 "Nona-1" then the picture will be different

          But in general ...
          yes, the creation of a wheeled vehicle with a mortar for shooting from the "body" is a technically feasible task, but
          1 minus leads for reference - do not shoot from a mortar on the move in motion
          2 any recoil damper systems will reduce the accuracy of the shot
          3 recoil impulse can disrupt the operation of machine mechanisms
          4 anyway, only a very moderate mortar can be installed in the car
          5 hide the mortar inside the armored personnel carrier !!! there is not enough space
          6 shooting from the "body" is possible only if the car is standing on a sufficiently horizontal surface
          Conclusion, it is much more effective and more convenient to shoot from a mortar standing on the ground, but it should be carried on the roof of an armored personnel carrier (similar to that of Tulip) and there is no need to admire Turkish designers

            For reference, an armored personnel carrier with a mortar is a mobile art system. And no longer an armored personnel carrier.

              No matter how it is called and whether it is on wheels or even on a caterpillar track, it is still impossible to shoot from a mortar on the move in motion.
