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.

We have modified dozens of these vehicles for customers to fit the specific role they are to be used for. From rural load carriers to be used by farmers for carrying animal feed out into the hills where even Land Rover's cannot go through to Executive models which include extravagant interiors with leather seating, satelite television and even a mini-bar.

Since the body is made of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) they do not suffer from the typical rust which other vehicles oftern do and that means they will last.

With all tracks driving these vehicles can climb up 60° inclines in dry conditions and up to 40° in snow and what's even better is that as a benefit of the articulated steering, the driver need not worry (as you would with a vehicle pulling a trailer) about what is happening with the rear unit since it's tracks follow almost exactly in the footprint of the front ones.

Being the most popular version of the Hagglund BV206 we are accustomed to supplying units in quantity as a fleet for companies.

In this example you can see a BV206 as used by the Police Force being used in harsh terrain and in this particular photo having just crossed a river.

The personnel Carrier is equipped with bilge pumps in both front and rear compartments to prevent flooding of the vehicle whilst fording or swimming should for any reason water be permitted to enter the cabins

And in this example we can see the BV206 being used as a Rescue Vehicle equipped with a front mounted winch which is an optional extra. 

Many BV206's are used by Rescue Organisations simply because of the flexibility of the machine as well as the terrain it can traverse whilst carrying large payloads of equipment or rescuers.

We have even been asked to create an executive model BV206 Personnel Version with Metalic Paint, Air Conditioning, Velour Seating and amongst other things a TV with Built in Satelite and DVD Player.

This all combines to show how versatile the BV206 is and how it's role in civilian life is far more positive than it's role in the military.

Civilian versions can now be found in all corners of the world from the freezing cold Polar Regions to the sweltering heat of the Deserts of the Middle East and anywhere in between that you choose to think of.
