Honestly well worth the price and effort. It might be second-hand handouts but these are still capable vehicles and force multiplier in an army that absolutely lacks them.

They were designed for Gendarmerie duties, not so much as APC's.

It beats driving in old Wranglers or Humvees. I rather drive in these for protection then the aformentioned utility role vehicles. Greece didnt really have them at all therefore these are very good additions for them.

Bunlar Yunan ordusunun yeni zirhli araçlari! diye baslik atmislar

Yeni araçlar 20 yasinda, ince zirhli ve 5kg patlayiciya dayanikli. Hiç yoktan iyidir elbet ama günümüzün savaslari için uygunlugu tartisilir.

Guardians were active in Afghanistan and Irak. Mobility is superior to Greek M113 fleet.

Not bad..
From nothing it is not bad but to adequately protect the territorial integrity of the country in this area we need something better than the 1200 M1117 ASV Guardian. These ASVs are used with 20 years of service. We need something better in terms of technical specifications and with fewer years of service. For example, since we are not allowed to buy weapons systems from China and Russia, we could take the evolution of the M1117 ASV Guardian which is the Textron Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle as it provides better electro systems and heavier shielding. But unfortunately we are going to be comfortable with something free that is also inferior and not by putting a little hand in our pocket for something better. The issue is that like Greece we had to find something deterrent for the amphibians FNSS PARS III 8X8.4X4 & 6X6 but also for the FNSS ACV-15 where Turkey has thousands. With the M1117 ASV Guardian you can not have a strong deterrent, especially when Turkey has entered the phase of upgrading the FNSS ACV-15.
