It is in service with Sweden and was not exported. The Kongsberg Protector remote weapon station will be fitted to all variants of the vehicle. Electronics are 4th Gen rated and active dampening technology improves offroad speeds and performance. The photo above is also showing a separate mock-up made to study stowage of soldier back-packs in the right sponson. For ease of deployment it features a range of land and air transportation options.

Survivability is further enhanced by the stealth turret design and radar absorbing track skirts. The remotely-controlled weapon station can accommodate heavier weapons up to 35 mm caliber. The suspension, which had been modified to suit a 38-ton armored vehicle rather than the 700 kg 1,500 lb racing car, reportedly increases speed by 30-40 percent on rough terrain, outrunning main battle tanks, decreases vehicle pitch acceleration by 40 percent, gives greater maneuverability and stability for on-the-move gunnery, and reduces crew fatigue and life-cycle costs. Deliveries of the , with a weight of 16. All-round protection is against 25 mm armor-piercing projectiles. Issues with the sight alignment were unsolved and no units ordered.

Operations in places like Bosnia, Haiti, Kosovo, and Somalia highlighted the advantages of vehicles small enough to drive on narrow city streets and low weight capacity bridges with sufficient survivability and lethality to deal with potentially surly populations. It is worth noting that first batch of vehicles for the Swedish Army had no gun stabilization system, and thus cold not fire accurately on the move. Part of a network of sites that includes , a data-driven property used in ranking the top military powers of the world, and , the World Directory of Modern Military Aircraft.
