First Win has been devised as a family of versions, offering different levels of protection and mobility to suit various customer requirements. The vehicle can be reconfigured for many different battlefield and security roles, such as ambulance, command post, reconnaissance and infantry fighting vehicle. It is easily transportable by air, sea, rail or road, and can be fitted with a variety of overhead weaponry such as 7.62mm or 12.7mm machine guns, and 40mm automatic grenade launcher. A variety of internal configurations can be installed, but with a single driver the First Win can carry 10 troops.

Protection for the crew and occupants is provided through an all-welded V-shaped armour steel hull, which also is the basis of the chassis-less monocoque structure. The protection not only covers the crew compartment, but also that of the engine

The highest level of protection is offered by the First Win personnel carrier with 300hp engine, which offers a high degree of resistance against mines and IED blasts. It has STANAG Level 2 protection against ballistic threats as standard, with an option to upgrade to level 3, while it has full level 3 protection against mines. This equates to protection against the equivalent of an 8-kilogram TNT blast under the belly, or 10 kilograms under the wheels.

First Win-E is a slightly smaller vehicle with a 250hp engine and independent suspension that is optimised for fast-moving reconnaissance operations. It has Level 2 mine blast protection but has reduced weight compared to the standard First Win, but with a corresponding increase in mobility. Chaiseri also offers the First Win-L, a lighter version with 200hp engine and Level 1 protection as standard, intended primarily for internal security uses where mines are not a threat.

More than 30 First Win vehicles are already in service with the Thai army and internal security agencies. Chaiseri is now offering the vehicle for export as a versatile and efficient vehicle that offers high levels of protection for its occupants, but at an affordable cost.
