K808 8×8 armored personnel carrier completes field trials
- September 10, 2018
K-808 wheeled armored vehicle, built by Hyundai Rotem Co., a unit of Hyundai Motor Group, will be mass-produced by the end of this year.
The vehicle successfully underwent the test in field units, such as the Army’s 25th and 37th Divisions, from April through last month.
The vehicle is equipped with run-flat tires designed to cope with the effects of deflation when punctured, and a tire air control system that modulates air pressure to fit road conditions to ensure high mobility.
The K-808 was developed from 2012 to 2016 with a budget of around 22.2 billion won ($19.7 million).
