Pars 4x4

Manufacturer: FNSS Defence Systems Inc  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Reconnaissance Vehicle  

Being the latest member of the PARS family, the PARS 4X4 has been designed to undertake special operational roles such as advanced surveillance, anti-tank and command & control. The vehicle was designed in a way to meet all the operational requirements that might be required in the theater.

The PARS 4X4 has a power-to-weight ratio of 25-30 Hp/ton , a silhouette of just 1.9 m and amphibious capabilities. The vehicle with its crew of 5 can operate in water that is deep and fast-flowing without any preparation. In the water, the vehicle can perform pivot turns and even move backwards when required. The increased maneuvering capability in the water is due to the two water jets located at the rear of the vehicle.

The PARS 4X4 can operate on any rough terrain with a reduced break of angle, low center of gravity, fully independent suspension system, ABS-assisted hydraulic disc brakes, low ground pressure and increased angles of approach and departure. The PARS 4X4 can climb slopes of 70% and hold on slopes of 40%, and it can pass over 50 cm vertical obstacles with ease. The hydraulic recovery winch system located at the front of the vehicle has the ability to provide self-recovery when required. The mobility of PARS 4X4 has been increased via the central tire inflation system, and it also has a run-flat capability. The PARS 4X4 has a top speed of 120 km/h on asphalt and a range of 700 km. The vehicle can switch from 4X4 mode for rough terrain to 4X2 mode for use on a highway. The PARS 4X4 has an automatic transmission and an axle lock for slippery surfaces and soft soil.

The windows are ballistically protected and designed to afford a wide field of view for both the driver and the crew. The PARS 4X4 also provides the driver and the commander with integrated night and day vision cameras that enable operations in night drives without head lights. The command and warning panels and the mine-protected seats have been specifically developed for the commander, driver, gunner and military personnel with their equipment.

The body of the vehicle is made of ballistic material, which provides protection against mines and improvised explosives.

The vehicle is especially noteworthy due to its load carrying capacity, its open architecture features and the way it was designed to accommodate the equipment that is used in the vehicle in order to carry out different missions and meet user requirements.

The PARS 4X4 can be transported using any kind of military transport aircraft including the CH-47 Chinook heavy load helicopter.
