PARS III 8x8
WHEELED ARMOURED COMBAT VEHICLE (WACV)

PARS III - 8x8 WHEELED ARMOURED COMBAT VEHICLE (WACV) Overview

PARS III 8X8 has 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.

The PARS III 8X8 combat weight is 30.000 kg and is powered by a diesel engine. The power pack consists of a water cooled diesel engine, coupled with a fully automatic transmission which generates maximum road speed up to 100 km/h. PARS III 8X8 is capable of manoeuvring on a 60% vertical and 30% horizontal gradient, climbing 70 cm-high obstacles and crossing 200 cm wide trenches.

Thanks to its unique design with its powerpack location and favoured weight balance, the vehicle has almost equal axle loads on each axles. This design approach gives the vehicle the ability to move comfortably even on loose and soft terrain, providing increased roadholding at high speeds and short braking distances. The vehicle has 8X8 driving characteristics, and all of its 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 PARS III 8X8 all-axle steering system gives the vehicle the lowest turning radius in its class at 8 meters. The ability of gradual decreasing of steer by wire of rear axles and locking over certain speeds, together with the ABS system and the engine brake, all contribute to enhanced driving safety.

The PARS III 8X8 all-axle steering system gives the vehicle the lowest turning radius in its class at 8 meters.

The two-man driver’s section is located in front of the vehicle, which offers more than 180° horizontal field of vision and a high level of driving safety and comfort. Large glass periscopes, and front driving and manoeuvre cameras with thermal cameras located on the front and rear of the vehicle provides high-level situational awareness for the driver and commander. The door covers, personnel seats, rifle 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 a range of over 800 km, the PARS III 8X8 has fuel tanks incorporating special measures to protect against explosion and puncture, and a reserve fuel tank under the armour can also be called upon in emergency situations.

The PARS III 8X8 hull can be brought to the level of protection required by the user via the modular designed armour system. Modular hull and armour design of PARS III 8X8 offers various level of ballistic and mine protection according to customer requests.

The hull form, underbelly structure, base plates and specially developed mineresistant seats are designed to protect personnel against high-level mine threats.

PARS III 8X8 vehicle runs ahead of its competitors by offering similar ballistic and mine protections levels with MRAP vehicles while maintaining combat and mobility characteristics of modern armoured combat vehicles. The PARS III 8X8 has an integrated air-conditioning system, which keeps the vehicle’s internal temperature at +25 °C even in hottest desert conditions.

The modular connection of the vehicle subsystems to the mine-resistant hull ensures 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 8X8 superior to its 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 maximum readiness levels on combat situations.
