The vehicle operates in temperatures from -32°C to +46°C, from Arctic to desert and jungle conditions. The Bv206 S consists of two tracked units, which are linked together with a steering unit. The front unit has seats for the driver and three passengers and the rear unit has eight seats.

The Bv206 S Armored Personnel Carrier is an articulated Swedish transport vehicle and is used by numerous nations. The “S” after 206 indicates the armored personnel variant capable of carrying 12 troops — four in the front unit and eight in the rear.
The kit includes a fairly complete interior, with detailed doors and hatches, but no engine. The four tracks and power cables connecting the units are supplied as vinyl that can be attached with plastic cement.
Out of the box, you’re given a choice to replicate one of two Spanish or an Italian vehicle. The two Spanish vehicles are armed with a machine gun in the roof of the front unit and use a different roof part. The Spanish units also have extra floodlights up front. These build choices are shown at the end of the directions, so make your decision early in the construction process.
Glue and paint are required to complete this model. (Not included)
