Den AIFV (Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle) is a tracked light armored vehicle that serves as an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) in the armies of several countries. It is a development of the M113A1 armored personnel carrier. While the US was uninterested in the design, a number of other governments were interested in the vehicle, which was simpler, lighter, and cheaper than the Bradley. After a series of demonstrations and the delivery of four evaluation vehicles in 1974, the Netherlands government placed an order for 880 of the vehicles in 1975, which were designated YPR-765 when they entered service. Some changes were made at the request of the Dutch government, including shifting the weapon station to the right side and moving the commander behind the driver. The Netherlands ordered 2,079, of which 815 were produced locally under license. Under the YPR-2000 program, virtually all Dutch vehicles were upgraded to YPR-765A1 standard and are easily identified by the 3-tone NATO camouflage pattern[clarification needed]. During the war in Afghanistan, several vehicles were fitted with additional armour.

The YPR-765 is a light armored vehicle that was developed by the US company FMC Corporation as a variant of the AIFV (Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle). The YPR-765 was adopted by the Netherlands as the standard infantry fighting vehicle for its armored infantry units, and was intended to be used in the front lines to transport and support infantrymen quickly and safely. The vehicle has a crew of three: a commander, a driver, and a gunner. The vehicle is equipped with a 25 mm Oerlikon KBA cannon and a 7.62 mm machine gun in a one-man turret, as well as firing ports for the infantrymen to use their personal weapons from inside the vehicle. The vehicle has an aluminum hull with spaced laminate steel armor on the front and sides, filled with polyurethane foam for extra protection. The vehicle has a diesel engine that allows it to reach a maximum speed of 65 km/h on road and an operational range of 500 km. The YPR-765 has several variants for different roles, such as anti-tank, mortar carrier, cargo, command and control, ambulance, and recovery. The YPR-765 has seen service in several conflicts, such as the Yugoslav Wars, the War in Afghanistan, the Syrian Civil War, and the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
