Pegaso BMR


Pegaso BMR

The Pegaso 3560 BMR is a 6x6 wheeled armoured personnel carrier produced in Spain by Enasa since 1979.

It has a Pegaso 9157/8 306hp diesel engine, automatic gearbox, torque converter, independent suspension in all six wheels and it was able to go into water and be airbone. It received different kind of weapons and there is also a field ambulance version. It can be fully amphibious, as two hydrojets for displacement in water were an optional equipment.

Pegaso BMRs are used by Spanish, Egyptian, Saudi Arabian, Moroccan, and Mexican Armies.

The Spanish Army BMRs (or BMR-600) have been instrumental in the performance of Spanish forces in international interventions in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon. In the last years all of them had their original Pegaso engines replaced by a new 310hp Scania DS9 61A 24S engine, as part of the "BMR 2" programme. Furthermore the vehicles were fitted with additional passive armour and an air conditioning unit. They are now known as BMR M1.
