Armoured Personnel Carrier Vehicle

The KF412 evolved from the CASSPIR Mk2. It looks like an old CASSPIR, but it is a brand new vehicle with new SSAB Steel for the hull (more strength and durability), new glass and various other improvements to the old design.
This vehicle can carry up to 14 people, is capable of B6+ (and B7 optional add on armor) ballistic protection. With its proven design against Mines and capable off-road capability, this is the master of African APC’s.
