Description
The PARS 8x8 is a wheeled armoured combat vehicle developed, designed and manufactured by the Turkish Company FNSS. PARS is designed not only to have a high level of ballistic and mine resistance, but also carry a variety of weapon stations and provide a high internal volume, which allows for a full complement of infantry soldiers with all of their equipment. The PARS 8×8 has a crew of two and can carry eight fully equipped infantrymen at the rear. The PARS uses an open electronics architecture, it is claimed that inserting new technology can be achieved more easily as it becomes available. The PARS 6x6 is air transportable by military transport aircraft C-130, A400M, C-17 or C-5. The PARS forms the basis of the 8x8 AV8 vehicles, which DEFTECH, in cooperation with FNSS, is developing for the Malaysian Armed Forces. FNSS would be responsible for the development of vehicles, shared production of the platforms for vehicles, subsystem integration and system integration and system performance within the framework of the project. The very first prototype, of which the hull production and installation will be accomplished, is aimed to be delivered to Malaysia in 2012. Together with this vehicle the 25 mm Sharpshooter Turret will be sent for qualification procedure. Unless a delay occurs the delivery of the second prototype is expected to take place in the first quarter 2013. The qualification procedure will commence following the delivery of the prototypes. After the qualification is completed, the produced parties will be accomplished by the end of 2013. 257 8x8 AV8 wheeled armored vehicles with 12 different configurations will be built for the Malaysian Armed Forces within the scope of project.

Armament
The PARS 8x8 can be fitted with a full range of weapons systems including manual ring mount machine gun station or remote weapon station with light or medium caliber weapons. A variety of weapons can be installed on the roof, such as a 7.62 or 12.7 mm machine gun or a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher. The PARS 8x8 can be also equipped with one or two man turret armed with 25mm automatic cannon.
Design and protection
The hull of the PARS 8x8 consists of a composite aluminium and steel armour that provides a protection for the crew and infantry against firing of small arms 7.62 mm armour-piercing attack through a full 360°. The vehicle is also protected against mines and IEDs threats. In option, the PARS can be fitted with an add-on armour package to increase protection. One of the most significant features of the PARS vehicle is situational awareness. A unique feature is that the vehicle commander and driver sit side-by-side. The driver and the commander are seated at the front of the vehicle, both with flat-panel displays all information about the status of the vehicle. There is three large day periscopes at the front position of driver and commander and one on each side that provide excellent visibility. Eight infantrymen can be seated at the rear of the hull on individual seats down each side of the hull facing inwards. All shock-absorbing seats are fitted with five-point seatbelts as standard. Back of the driver and commander position, there is an access passage to the troop compartment at the right side of the hull. The troops leave and enter the vehicle via a large hydraulic ramp mounted at the rear of the hull. To allow for PARS to be rapidly re-configured for different operational roles, all members of the PARS family have a removable roof so that it can be quickly converted for a wide range of specialist roles.
Mobility
The PARS 8x8 is motorized with a EURO 3 Diesel engine with a power of 550 hp. coupled to a fully automatic transmission with 6 forward and 1 reverse gears. The diesel power pack is mounted to the rear of the driver and commander position on the left side of the hull. An important feature of PARS is its very high mobility that comes from its newly developed active pneumatic independent suspension system. The vehicles are equipped with independent suspension at all wheel stations, providing commonality between each station, thereby reducing logistics and improving life-cycle costs. PARS's centralized engine location, made possible by the suspension design, provides for a very adequate passage to and from the rear of the vehicle. The PARS 8×8 features steering on all eight wheels. The PARS 8x8 can run at a maximum road speed of 100 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 700 km. The vehicle can climb up to 60% gradient and vertical obstacle of 0.7 m, move on 30% side slope and cross a trench of maximum 2m.
Accessories
For enhanced visibility, there are two thermal cameras, one at the rear and one at the front which provides images to improve situational awareness. The PARS 8x8 is fully amphibious propelled in the water at a maximum speed of 8 km/h by two water jets mounted on each side at the bottom rear of the hull or 3 km/h with the tires. Standard equipment of the PARS 6x6 includes anti-lock braking system (ABS), central tire inflation (CTI) and run flat tire inserts, self-recovery winch, and integrated survivability suite.
