VariantsEdit

Type 6616Edit

The Type 6616 was a version of the Type 6614 that incorporated a turret armed with a 20mm autocannon. The turret was designed, built, and installed by Oto Melara.[2]

KM900Edit

The KM900 was a version of the Fiat 6614 produced under license by Asia Motors for use by the Republic of Korea Army. It is expected that the KM900s will be phased out with the introduction of the KNAV (KW1 Scorpion).
