PARS IV 6×6 Special Operations Vehicle (S-Ops) has reached the final stage of the durability tests. It is able to operate in wide range of terrains, climate types and optimized for different operational requirements. PARS IV 6X6 S-Ops Vehicle is designed to meet the tactical and operational requirements of military and internal security forces whose mission is special. It is highly versatile, reflecting the broad spectrum of potential missions and operation zones. PARS IV 6×6 is promising the highest mobility capabilities among Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (MRAP) class.
PARS IV 6×6 S-Ops Vehicle operates in all weather and all terrain conditions, day and night, including cross-country and urban areas. High level of electrical and optical situational awareness are situated for all the team members. Vehicle’s special design enables maximum optical visual situational awareness with more than 180 degrees for the driver and the personnel located at the front section of the vehicle. Front and rear axle steering provides a turning radius narrower than a 4×4 vehicle. This unique feature enables rapid maneuver capability in narrow spaces, especially in low infrastructure urban areas.
The vehicle’s weapon system is designed to engage multiple targets simultaneously from all directions including high grounds. Two remote controlled turrets are located in the front and rear section of the vehicle. The weapon system is equipped with a universal weapon mount which enables it to carry 7.62 mm, .50 Cal machine guns or 40 mm automatic grenade launchers, and can be easily changed depending on mission requirements. 2-axis stabilization allows firing on the move and the increased elevation of the guns enables to engage targets on high grounds (building tops, cliffs etc) and/or low altitude aerial targets.
The PARS (Anatolian Leopard) is an amphibious Armoured combat vehicle family with 4×4, 6×6 and 8×8 versions, produced by FNSS Defence Systems of Turkey. The development of the PARS vehicles commenced in 2002, based on a design by US company GPV (General Purpose Vehicles). The modular design of the PARS will incorporate external turrets or weapon stations depending on user requirements. It could be a one or two-man turret or a remotely operated weapon station. To allow for PARS to be rapidly reconfigured for different operational roles, all members of the PARS family have removable roofing so that they can be quickly converted for a wide range of specialist roles.
