According to the statement made by FNSS on social media, the endurance tests of the Pars IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle have reached the final stage. Pars IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle will be delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces in 2022 in the first batch of 12 units. In the statement of FNSS, “The durability tests of the PARS IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle have reached the final stage. PARS IV 6×6 will be the member with the highest mobility in the Mine Protected Vehicles (MKKA) class.” statements were included.
The survivability infrastructure, which includes fire capability for special operations, effective protection against Improvised Explosives (IED), high mine and ballistic protection, was designed with new technology mission equipment. Designed and developed by FNSS with national resources, the vehicle has a unique modular armor structure. It completes the passive protection elements thanks to the integrated EYP kit and the RPG mesh that can be easily disassembled and mounted by the user.
In the MKKA project, which started in 2019; All mine, IED and ballistic tests of the vehicle were carried out with the user at FNSS facilities, Turkish Armed Forces exercise fields and internationally accredited test centers. The vehicle was tested against high-level mine threats defined in survivability standards, as well as IED and ballistic threats from all directions. Acoustic warning system, which is sensitive to supersonic sounds and integrated with gun turrets, active mixing/blinding system, 360-degree dual-user fog mortars and CBRN system are also on the vehicle as active protection elements.
6 different weapon types can be used in the PARS IV 6×3 Special Operations Vehicle
In line with the tactical needs of special operations, the PARS IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle, which was originally created with its concept, has “two independent SANCAK UKK systems” developed by FNSS. Three different weapon types (3 mm, 7,62 mm machine gun and 12,7 mm grenade launcher) can be used in the turrets, which can be easily changed by the user when needed. The vehicle provides surveillance and twice the effective firepower against threats that may appear from different directions simultaneously from all around or from high points.
The mission equipment of the vehicles includes high-tech systems, including simultaneous, safe and uninterrupted communication between subordinates and superiors, high situational awareness, effective command and control capability, at a single vehicle level and in unity. With its powerful engine, 7 forward and 2 reverse gears, the vehicle, which has the most powerful and agile power group in its class, also provides the best road holding in different terrain and road conditions with its height-adjustable independent suspension. PARS IV 6×6, which has all-wheel drive and front-rear axle rotation system, has the lowest turning circle in its class and high maneuverability in the residential area.
FNSS implements its R&D capabilities, experience and new generation vehicle development competencies with the support of its stakeholders. After the rigorous tests that must be completed before entering the inventory, the project will reach the final stage and the PARS IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle will be delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces. Thus, the new generation combat vehicle in the 6×6 class will enter the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces.
