FV-603B Alvis Saracen Armoured Personnel Carrier

The FV603 Saracen APC was developed by Alvis Ltd and based on the 6x6 Saladin Armoured Car. The Saracen could hold a three man crew (driver, commander and radio operator) plus a nine man rifle section. Originally the Mk 1 had a small turret mounting a 0.303 L3A3 machine gun, the Mk2 onwards had the same turret as the Ferret with a 0.303 Bren gun carried for air defence fitted to a ring mount on the rear of the hull.
