The BvS10 amphibious armored personnel carrier was developed in the first half of the 2000s by the Swedish division of BAE Systems, commissioned by the UK Ministry of Defense. Currently, BvS 10 transporters in different versions are in service with six countries. The main function of the BvS10 is to transport troops and equipment weighing up to 5 tons; the vehicle is also able to cross water obstacles. BvS 10 is a machine with two bodies connected by a special hinge mechanism. The front hull houses the power plant, the driver's cabin and some of the passenger seats. The rear link has the main compartment and is equipped with track drives. The vehicle has protection against small arms fire, which can be enhanced to protect against 14.5 mm bullets. The BvS 10 armored personnel carrier can be armed with 5.56 and 12.7 mm machine guns, as well as a 40 mm grenade launcher. Due to the low ground pressure, not all anti-tank mines are triggered under the vehicle. In different modifications, BvS 10 conveyors use diesel engines of several models with a power of 285 hp. The car's power reserve is 500 km, speed up to 70 km/h. In total, the Bandvagn Skyddad 10 transporter accommodates 12 people, including the crew.
