This version of the Piranha 3C is unique to the Belgian Army with about 18 currently in service. The "DF" prefix in the "DF90" vehicle name stands for "Direct Fire", and alludes to the mission of the vehicle. That is, the vehicle's purpose is to support the infantry by engaging and destroying targets that are preventing them from accomplishing their task/mission. The DF90 variant is NOT an anti-tank vehicle, although it has some capability to destroy lightly armored vehicles.
To view the specifications and references common to ALL variants, please refer to the Piranha 3 Armored Fighting Vehicle Series Index.
