FNSS has signed an agreement with the Malaysian Company Deftech to produce locally 256 PARS 8x8 armoured vehicles for the Malaysian army in 12 configurations.

PARS is the new generation of wheeled armored combat vehicle (WACV) designed and developed by FNSS Savunma Sistemleri A.S. PARS has been developed with a special emphasis on mobility, protection, payload, and growth potential. The vehicles employ the latest designs and technologies with special emphasis on the performance and durability of modern military operational requirements. The vehicles are available in 6x6 and 8x8 configurations. FNSS has named the vehicles as PARS which in Turkish means "Anatolian Leopard".

PARS 8x8 is fitted with independent air spring suspension. Hydro pneumatic suspension system is still an option for the user.

One of the most significant features of PARS 8x8 vehicles is situational awareness. Commander and driver sit side-by-side concept is standard in all PARS FoV's. For enhanced visibility, there are two thermal cameras in the front and rear, as well as two optical cameras at the front and rear. Local situational awareness is significantly enhanced.

The power pack is located at the rear of the driver between the first and second axles. Left side located powerpack leaves an aisle on the right side for the commander and driver cockpit to access the rear troop compartment.

The vehicle is provided with roof hatches and a power operated ramp at the rear and in addition there is an emergency hatch at the right side of the hull between the first and second road wheel stations.

11 to 13 personnel can be carried, depending on the role and the weapon system fitted on the vehicle. Foldable blast attenuation seats are used for crew and dismounts against mines and IED threats.
