    Military Armored Vehicle Market can be segmented on the basis of type, mobility, engine and geography





    Light Thinner armour, lower-powered guns, better tactical mobility
    Medium Adequate armour with balanced mobility and fighting capability
    Heavy Thick armour, more powerful guns but difficult to transport and less mobile.


    Armored Personnel Carrier (APC)


    APC is used to carry troops quickly and safely to the position where they need to be deployed.

    M113 (Food Machinery Corp) is the most popular APC and was used in the Iraq war.


    Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV)

    They are capable of carrying infantry to the battlefield and can provide direct fire support. IFVs are typically armed with 20-40mm calibre autocannon, 7.62mm machine guns, tank missiles and surface to air missiles.

    CV-9035 (Hägglunds and Bofors) is an example of IFV in from the Swedish Army.


    Infantry Mobility Vehicle (IMV)

     It is a wheeled APC which can be used for patrolling and can act as a security vehicle. They are suitable during ambush protection and are mine-resistant.

    ATF Dingo (KMW,Germany) of the Germany army is an example of IMV.


    Armoured Recovery Vehicle (ARV)

     It is a type of AFV (Armoured Fighting Vehicle). These vehicles are used to either repair any damaged armoured vehicle in a battle or to tow them out from the danger zone for extensive repairs.


    Armoured Amphibious Vehicle (AAV)

    Most of the track designed armoured vehicles have amphibious capabilities. They can be used as APC powered by water jets and are laced with adequate armour.

    BTR-80 (Arzamas machinery) is an example of AAV.


    Unmanned Fighting Vehicle (UFV)

    These vehicles don’t need a human operator and can be remotely controlled, which makes them a viable option for carrying intelligence and surveillance operations. These types of Vehicle consist of a set of sensors to observe the nearby conditions and then could act on their own or send data to the remote operator.


    Sooran is India’s first Unmanned Armour Vehicle.



      Wheeled Tracked
    a. Low production cost Highly power-efficient
    b. Needs a low amount of torque to move Can quickly move on rough terrain
    c. High manoeuvrability More aggressive than wheels
    d. Lightweight Creates less impact on the ground
    e. Simple in design Lower speed of the Vehicle
    f. Can’t drive over an obstacle Can drive over an obstacle
    g. Difficult to drive in snow Easy to drive in snow

     Wheeled type can be broadly classified into 4X4 (4WD, 4X2), 6X6 (6WD, 6X4), 8X8, 8X12.
