The new wheeled Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) vehicle uses a 6X6 chassis and the design was based on the proven concept used in the Rosomak APC family which is in service with the Polish Army. High power combined with limited size and weight, provides good maneuvering capabilities and allows for an easy drive in difficult terrain. The vehicle can run at a maximum road speed of 100 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 700 km.
The new APC is fitted with a robust & fully independent suspension (similar to KTO Rosomak) together with high-performance engine ensures good mobility & crew comfort. Amphibious capability is available as an option.
The high payload capability of the new 6x6 APC ensures that even with the protection level STANAG level 4 (optional) there is enough payload for various vehicle variants and equipment. This allows versatility through various weapon system integrations available to the vehicle.
All solutions are cost-effective with low through-life costs, this together with truck-like user interface makes vehicle simply to operate, maintain and repair. The logistical commonality between KTO Rosomak 8x8 provides additional benefits.
The new APC has a length of 7.5 m, a with of 2.9 m and a height of 2.5 m for a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 22,000 kg.
