The thull is equipped with 2 front doors, 2 rear swing doors, a roof hatch, a cab windscreen defrosting system, and comes with a front area for the driver and commander, an engine compartment, a communication corridor, and a rear area for troops and equipment.

A rear ramp and a roof interface for a 7.62 mm or 12.7 mm self-defense machine gun turret are available as an option.
