FNSS announced in a video that it has recently released that its PARS 6x6 SCOUT vehicle will be the company's vehicle with the highest localization rate.
The released video demonstrated the company’s PARS 6x6 SCOUT vehicle’s capabilities in reconnaissance and internal security operations.
Speaking in the video, FNSS executives and engineers said the following about the PARS 6X6 SCOUT:
"As FNSS, our basic approach is to prioritize user requirements in all vehicles we have developed for friendly and allied countries, especially for the Turkish Armed Forces.
Pars SCOUT has become a more suitable vehicle for reconnaissance and surveillance type missions compared to our other vehicles.
We are talking about 5 to 6 years of indigenization and nationalization.
The most important and prominent thing about Pars SCOUT is actually its indigenous subsystems.
When we evaluate it in terms of localization, we have a vehicle with the highest rate of domestic contribution.
It has been a very good teamwork.”
The PARS 6X6 SCOUT
The new member of the PARS family, the PARS 6x6 SCOUT, takes its name from the silent, agile and predatory leopard that once roamed in Anatolia. This special purpose tactical wheeled vehicle is equipped with modern technologies providing strategic advantages to its user, including a high situational awareness feature that is designed especially for reconnaissance and internal security operations.
The PARS 6X6 SCOUT has a power-to-weight ratio of 25-30 Hp/ton, driven by a diesel engine. The PARS 6X6 SCOUT Powerpack consists of a diesel engine, coupled with a fully automatic transmission which generates a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h and is capable of maneuvering on 60% vertical and 30% horizontal gradients, climbing 60 cm-high obstacles and crossing 120 cm-wide trenches. Thanks to the engine layout and favored balanced design, the vehicle’s axle loads are almost equal.
This design approach provides the vehicle with the ability to move comfortably even on loose and soft terrain, while also providing increased road-holding at high speeds and short braking distances. The vehicle has 6X6 and 6X4 driving characteristics, and all of its axles can be locked if required. The central tire inflation system allows the driver to adjust tire pressures to suit different terrains, and the independent height-adjustable hydro-pneumatic suspension system provides the best road holding for different road conditions.
