The BMR-600 (Blindado Medio de Ruedas) is a six-wheeled light armored vehicle manufactured in Spain under French license. To 1972 the Spanish Army fixed the tactical and technical requirements for a wheeled armored vehicle for the transport and movement of a squad of infantry to and in the zone battle. Designed by the Commission of Development of Armored Vehicles, the Army, and the Direction of Projects of ENASA, the prototype the Pegaso BMR-600 was evaluated over four years and entered production in 1979, with versions for personnel, mortar carriers of 81 and 120 mm, recovery-repair and ambulance. On the other hand, the Army made those of transmissions of the Mount Olympus system and combat engineers BMR-VCZ. The BMR has been exported to Saudi Arabia and Egypt and employed effectively in real situation as much by the Saudi forces during the campaign of Kuwait of 1991 ande by the Spanish troops in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania.
