Delivered: First Panus R600 Armoured Personnel Carriers for the Royal Thai Marine Corps

Thai company Panus Assembly has completed the manufacture of two R600 8×8 wheeled armoured personnel carriers (APCs) for the Royal Thai Marine Corps (RTMC). The initial pair was ordered with a budget of $2.77 million.
