The first PARS III Wheeled Armoured Vehicle (WAV) was delivered to the Royal Army of Oman (RAO) on 12 July at the FNSS facilities in Golbasi, Turkey. Finished in RAO camouflage, hull number 001 is in the 8x8 APC variant, aka IFV-25. The vehicle features a one-man FNSS SABER 25 turret armed with a stabilised Orbital ATK M242 25mm dual-feed cannon and an FN MAG 58M 7.62mm co-axial machine gun.

While the 8x8 APC and 6x6 ARecV, ASCV and APC variants are fitted with a SABER 25 turret, the 8x8 ASCV will be fitted with a 12.7mm RWS. The 7.62mm and 12.7mm NIMER cupola, being manufactured by an Omani company, will be integrated on the remaining PARS III 8x8 and 6x6 variants, excluding the 8x8 120mm AMV, which will be fitted with a RUAG Defence 120mm smooth-bore mortar system and 7.62mm pintle mount as a secondary weapon.

Oman inaugurates Pars vehicles

The Omani Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced on 21 November that the FNSS 8x8 Pars armoured vehicle has been inaugurated into service in an event attended by army command Major General Mattar bin Salim al-Balushi.

The MoD said the Pars was ordered in 2015 after it was selected from a group of contenders that were subjected to comprehensive technical and operational studies.
