Krpan 8x8 - first slovenian infantry fighting vehicle represents a combat vehicle of the future.
KRPAN 8x8 represents a new generation in the range of modern 8x8 wheeled vehicles.
KRPAN 8x8 is the next step in the advancement of the successful VALUK 6x6 (Pandur 6x6) which has found service with several national armies worldwide.
It is an integrator, stimulator and engine of slovene defence industry.
Due to its vehicle construction and its modularity, it can be equipped with different weapon systems up to cal. 105 mm or mortar cal. up to 120 mm without changing basic construction of the vehicle.
The various KRPAN 8x8 versions (partly amphibious) share the same platform and therefore minimize the efforts of logistics and maintenance. Increased vehicle dimensions (compared to vehicle 6x6) and improved drive train guarantee outstanding mobility in heavy terrain combined with a large utilizable interior space and sufficient payload.
The KRPAN 8x8 infantry fighting vehicle is entirely produced in Slovenia by the help of Slovenian and foreign partners. It combines decades-long tradition at the production of armour and artillery equipment as well as Slovenian knowledge and experience gained at more than a decade long production of Valuk 6x6.
