Pindad APR-1V, APR-1V, or simply APR-1, also known as APR1V1[1] (Angkut Personel Ringan; English: Light Personnel Carrier) is an armoured personnel carrier made by PT Pindad of Indonesia. This vehicle is the first production model in a series of Pindad's APC which began from a variant that uses 4x4 wheel drive and later developed into APS-1 and APS-2 with 6x4 wheels drive and then redeveloped into APS-3 Anoa with 6x6 drive.


The development of the APC started when Pindad assembled the British-made Scorpion tank. After that, Pindad made a water cannon vehicle and a 4x4 light personnel carrier (APR1-V1) to be used by the TNI and Brimob.

In 2002, PT Pindad produced the 4x4 APR using Isuzu's frame and 120PS engine.[2] This is continued in 2004 - 2005 by cooperating with BPPT to produce a 4x4 APS (Medium Personnel Carrier) prototype.[1] The development was then continued by developing armoured vehicles whose components developed indigenously by making a prototype of 6x6 wheeled armoured vehicle using a Perkasa truck undercarriage, including a 220 PS engine and a transmission produced by PT Texmaco.[2]

This prototype became the starting point for PT Pindad in developing a 6x6 armoured vehicle with a monocoque body, independent wheel drive and suspension system according to TNI specifications.[2]
