The Iraqi Armed Forces displayed recently-delivered Promoter 4x4 armored vehicles for the first time earlier this month. The vehicles made in South Korea were part of a military parade on January 6 to mark the 100th observance of Iraq's Army Day.
The Defence Blog website said that the Promoter DAPC-2 4x4 is an armored personnel carrier developed by South Korea's Daeji P&I company. Designed primarily for use by police, special response teams and law enforcement agencies, the DAPC-2 is said to offer superior protection levels of up to STANAG 4569 and the possibility of being equipped with a range of weapons platforms. The armored personnel carrier is based on a heavy-duty Ford F550 chassis. Its standard configuration has seats for a driver, commander and a crew of eight, but the seating can be customized, according to the report.
