The Hagglund and Soner BV206 is a tracked vehicle built in Sweden and used by the British, Canadian and Swedish armed forces, and others, on snow and swampy terrain. The BV206 consists of two units articulated together to effect steering. The hulls are made of foam-filled fibreglass sandwich which allows the vehicle to float, propulsion in water coming from the tracks.
Development of the BV206 began in 1974, with deliveries to the Swedish Army in the 1970s and 1980s.
This BV206 (right) is operating in Antarctica.
