BV206 Personnel Carrier
Comprised of a front and rear body, both of which are driven, the Personnel Carrier offers a tremendously versatile capability being capable of carrying up to 17 persons or up to 2,000kg of cargo internally.
The two GRP bodies are naturally buoyant and permit the vehicle to actually swim which is not to be confused with fording. These vehicles can actually swim on still water at a speed of up to 4 knots.
Comprised of a standard Hard Top or Soft Top BV206 front body and a bespoke built rear cargo body, the BV206 Cargo version is well suited to the role of carrying up to 2,000Kg of cargo to and from remote locations.
Fitted with either a low style drop side cargo body or an amphibious body, this machine can take on any role in any terrain.
In this example you can see how we have installed a new small HIAB crane to permit the machine to self load and unload.
Originally designed as an Anti-tank vehicles the soft top variant of the BV206 was armed with either a Bofors 90 mm recoilless rifle, a TOW, MILAN or Bofors RBS 56 BILL ATGW located on a central pivot mount which could be hydraulically raised to the required level.
This of course has all been removed as part of the de-militarisation process prior to preparation.
DROPS / MULTILIFTS
This particular system is a development which we have found to be extremely popular with customers since it affords the ability to carry and drop off a variety of payloads.
Payloads carried on the Multi-Lift system are usually attached to a standard flatbed frame or drop side cargo body as shown above/below.
