Hägglund Amphibious Tracked Vehicles

The “Bandvagn 206” (more commonly called the BV206) is a tracked, articulated, all-terrain vehicle as was originally developed by Hägglunds (now part of BAE Systems Global Combat Systems) for the Swedish Army but which was adopted for use by many organisations.


The vehicle consists of two units, with all four tracks being driven which provides outstanding traction.

 
ISAR3 operates four BV206’s.  Two in the Personnel Carrier configuration, and two in the cargo configuration with a HIAB crane arm.
 
The Personnel Carrier it can carry up to 17 people (6 in the front compartment, 11 in the rear), and the trailer unit can be adapted for different applications.
 
The BV206 was designed to carry troops and equipment through harsh terrain, snow and marsh-lands in Sweden. The low ground pressure (approximately 8psi) enables it to cope with a wide range of difficult conditions without tearing up the terrain it is crossing.  Unlike a tank the BV206 uses an articulated steering system as opposed to a brake and slew system.
 
It is also fully amphibious, powered by its tracks it can attain a speed in still water of up to 4.7 km/h.
 
The total payload capacity is 2,250 kg and a trailer of up to 2,500 kg gross weight can also be towed behind the second compartment.
