  The Pbv 302 is a very good IFV. Especially considering that it is thirty years old. It allows the rifle squad to fight mounted and has proved itself to offer good protection to enemy fire in Bosnia. It went totally unchanged from prototype to serieproduction which probably is unique. It constitutes the backbone of the mechanized infantry and has done so since the late sixties. Today CV-90, BMP-1 and MT-LB are used as well but this vehicle really made the Swedish mechanized infantry what it is today. Without the best vehicle in its class when it entered service it still ranks above many more modern designs.
