Tanks & Armoured Vehicles
Constructed on the carriage of a BVP (also known as BMP), it is designed for conducting detached reconnaissance or combat activities in enemy rear areas.
This is a light combat amphibious tracked vehicle (known also under acronym BMP) with high manoeuvrability equipped with huge weaponry and armoured protection. Its capabilities increase the firepower and movement operations of mechanised units even if weapons of mass destruction were used.
The wheeled armoured personnel carrier Pandur II 8x8 is a product of the Steyr-Daimler-Puch Spezialfahrzeug GmbH, Austria. With the exception of first 17 pieces, the rest is being assembled by VOP 025 Novy Jicin in the Czech Republic.
This armoured wheeled amphibious carrier is a combat and transport vehicle used in mechanised, signal and special units. It was constructed in 1959 and jointly manufactured in Czechoslovakia and Poland, and was introduced into both of these armed forces in 1964. The carrier has been in use in many versions in terms of its weapons and additional equipment.
Czech soldiers use this German-made vehicle in the NATO ISAF operation in Afghanistan.
