The Bolivian Armed Forces are to receive newly built armored personnel carriers (APCs), the Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Company's China Tiger 4x4 light armoured vehicle, marking the first such procurement since 1979, an industry source told IHS Jane's .
The Tiger uses a 4x4 cross-country truck chassis which provides high mobility in all-terrain conditions. The Tiger APC has a crew of 2, which consists of the commander and driver, and can carry 9 fully equipped infantrymen. The vehicle has already undergone extensive off-road tests, and has shown great mobility on all terrains and in all-weather conditions. The vehicle has shown effective protection against firing of Type 56 Chinese 7.62mm caliber machine guns. During these firing tests the CEO of the Company Shaanxi Baoji Special Vehicles Manufacturing, Mister Wang Bao Ho was inside the vehicle.
