The FV 432 family of armoured personnel carriers (APC) began production in 1962 running for 10 years. At least 2 dozen variations of the 430 series were purpose built for the British Army alone. Some of these utilize the standard 432 body with only minor interior changes such as troop seats or litter racks. Some required the fitting of a turret like the 30mm Rarden and one model the FV434 maintenance unit had an open rear body.

A Rolls Royce K60 6.5 liter engine hurls this armoured wagon down the road at 32 mph. There are some small differences in the four mark versions none of real consequence less you want the NBC protected version, Mk 2/2. This is by far the most prolific of British armoured vehicles to date making for wide spread interchangability of parts and equipment. Although the Abbot FV433 105mm SPG is of the same basic clan it should be regarded as a distant cousin due to many differences from the rest of the family. The Abbot Self Propelled Gun is listed separate in this catalog.
