And from the DEFTECH representative that I met that was premiering their AV6 or actually the rebadged PARS 6x6, I was informed that there will finally be a field testing of 6x6 armoured vehicles in order to fulfil the UNIFIL requirements. No wonder there was a lot 6x6 units being displayed except for a particular brand from a neighbouring country that previously claimed the contract was already awarded to them. Hopefully this will be a nucleus order for the full replacement of the Condor fleet of battle taxis.
|The AV6 is currently displayed with the proposed weapon,|
|The emblem although different from PARS belies its origins, mayhaps now in the form of an ODE to Proton?|
|It was claimed that the use of the leash would allow a team of 6 to be transported by a single scooter. Interesting right?|
