First Win is an infantry mobility vehicle with an all-welded steel V-shaped monocoque hull that provides a high level of protection against a variety of battlefield threats, including mines and improvised explosive devices.[1] Gross vehicle weight is about 9 tonnes and it can carry up to 10 troops plus driver.

History[edit | edit source]

The Royal Thai Army has announced an official order of 21 First Wins.[2] 5 More First Wins are being negotiated for acquisition.[3] The Thai Ministry of Justice has officially ordered 18 First Wins.[3] These will be assigned to the Department of Special Investigation.[4]

Chaiseri also plans to export the First Win to customers who wish to purchase it.[5]

Design[edit | edit source]

A 7.62mm or .50 machine gun can be mounted on the roof and firing ports allow the crew to use their small arms from within the safety of the vehicle with other weapons including a RWS system.[6] For the power pack, Chaiseri opted for a Cummins diesel coupled to an Allison automatic transmission that gives a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h. Standard equipment includes powered steering, independent suspension and run-fl at tyres.
