SPEC SHEET (Description) Spartan FV103 Armoured vehicles

Armoured Vehicles Spartan FV103 is a derivative of the CVR(T) vehicle (Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance tracked).
The Spartan is fully amphibious and is operated by a crew of three.
More importantly, the Spartan needs only a crew of two and the armored personnel
variant can provide transportation for up to five combat-equipped soldiers.
The system has seen action as recently as the Bosnian Conflict.

The Armoured Vehicles Spartan FV103 is the armoured personnel carrier variant of the series.
The drivers position, engine and transmission layout is similar to the basic Scorpion.
The crew consists of three with a troop compartment in the rear for another four.
The vehicle has provision for a vehicle commander in a cupola similar to the Striker.
The troops in the rear have a two part hatch in the roof and a rear hatch.
There are no firing ports in the rear compartment.

We have in stock 5 spartans and their condition is excellent, wheels and tracks are very good some like new, clean interior and good paint on the exterior.
