The Piranha 3H Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) is the baseline vehicle in the series. *The APC can be fitted with many combinations of weapons, although they vary by country. For instance, the Irish Defence Forces (IDF) APC is fitted with a Thales turret mounting a Browning .50 cal M2HB heavy machine gun and a co-axial 7.62mm MAG 80 machine gun. On the other hand, the Danish vehicle is fitted with one (1) .50 cal HMG on a pintle mount. The IDF chose the Piranha to replace their Panhard M3 APC's, with approximately (54) APC's in service.
