   The Veran armored personnel carrier was developed by Canadian Streit Group. It was first revealed in 2013 during IDEX exhibition held in the Abu Dhabi. Later Streit Group renamed this APC as Varan.

   It is claimed that this new armored personnel carrier provides protection against 14.5-mm armor-piercing rounds and artillery shell splinters. The Varan has a V-shaped hull and offers high level of protection against landmines and IED blasts. Vehicle withstands 10 kg TNT blast.

   The Streit Varan is fitted with a remotely controlled weapon station, armed with a 12.7-mm machine gun. Alternatively it can be armed with a 7.62-mm machine gun or 40-mm automatic grenade launcher. Other weapon options are also available.

   This armored personnel carrier accommodates up to 10 troops including the driver. Troops enter and leave the vehicle via rear doors. Also there are roof hatches for observation, firing and emergency exit.

   The Streit Varan is powered by a Cummins ISL400 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 400 hp. Engine is located at the front. It is mated to Allison 6-speed automatic transmission. It uses axles of a Russian KamAZ-5350 truck. The Varan has a 6x6 configuration. Vehicle is fitted with a central tyre inflation system. It seems that this APC is not amphibious.
