FV432 Mk 1 & Mk 1/1

Digitally reproduced from original Army documents

FV432 was an armoured personnel carrier introduced in the 1960s as a replacement for the Saracen 6 wheel personnel carrier. Built by GKN the initial versions were powered by a Rolls-Royce B81 petrol engine, driving a six-speed automatic gearbox. The vehicle was designed to carry a crew of 2 ­ driver and commander ­ and a section of 10 infantryman. It was capable of 32mph on road and 3.5mph on water. Floatation equipment was fitted as standard with surrounding and folding deflector screens.

Later Marks were produced in which the engine was substituted by firstly a multi-fuel engine and, later, a diesel power plant. Production ceased in 1972. Many variants were built creating vehicles suitable for command, ambulance, recovery and cargo purposes. The handbook is in English and includes 159 pages. There are 69 monochrome illustrations and 6 fault-finding charts.
