Tracked vehicle near Lerags Cross
The vehicle is a Hägglunds Bandvagn 206 (Bv 206), a tracked, articulated, all-terrain vehicle, originally developed by Hägglunds (now part of BAE Systems Global Combat Systems) for the Swedish Army. It was designed to carry troops and equipment through harsh terrain, snow and marsh-lands. It is widely acknowledged as a environmentally green machine because it does not tear up the terrain it is crossing despite being on tracks, as it uses an articulated steering system as opposed to a brake and slew system used by tanks.
