Video of new Korean army K806 and K808 armored vehicles testing released by KFN Defense TV. That reporteing by snafu-solomon.blogspot.com.

Two armored combat vehicles, the K808 and K806, were developed as part of the project of army modernization. The K808 is designed for speedy troop deployment and reconnaissance missions in front line areas, including mountainous regions, while the K806 is intended for use in mobile strike and reconnaissance missions in the rear.

The new vehicles could later be adapted to carry 30 millimeter anti-aircraft guns and be used as wheeled combat command centers, DAPA pointed out. The agency said the new armored vehicles may find an export market, since they enjoy a price advantage and are more capable vehicles overall than those currently on the market.

The Korean army plans to deploy 600 wheeled K806 and K808 armored vehicles from 2016 until 2020. These will replace tracked armored vehicles in the rapid deployment and internal security roles.
