   The Feona mine resistant ambush protected vehicle was developed by Streit Group of Canada. It was first publicly revealed in 2015.

   The Feona is based on Ukrainian KrAZ-6322 6x6 truck. This vehicle follows the lines of the previous Shrek One mine protected vehicle with 4x4 configuration. It is worth noting that Streit Group developed a number of other armored vehicles in partnership with KrAZ of Ukraine. These are based around automotive components of KrAZ trucks. Also KrAZ manufactures some armored vehicles in Ukraine under license from the Streit Group.

   The Feona is aimed at export customers. However it is possible that the it will be license-produced by the KrAZ for Ukrainian Army as the KrAZ Feona.

   This armored vehicle can operate in areas where mine threat is high. Its main role is to carry troops to the battlefield under armor. This armored vehicle can be also used to evacuate wounded soldiers or carry various military cargo.

   Armor of the Feona provides ballistic protection against 7.62x39 mm armor-piercing rounds and artillery shell splinters. Vehicle has a V-shaped hull, that deflects mine blasts away from the crew compartment. It withstands explosions equivalent to 6 kg of TNT.

   This mine protected vehicle is armed with a roof-mounted and shielded machine gun. Also there are a number of firing ports provided for the troops.

   The Feona is operated by a crew of two, including commander and gunner. It can transport 10 fully-equipped troops.

   The Feona is powered by a Cummins ISME 385 10.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine, developing 380 hp. It is mated to an Allison 6-speed automatic transmission.

   In 2015 Streit Group also revealed another mine protected vehicle - the Hurricane. It is based on the KrAZ 8x8 chassis.
