The engine, automatic transmission Allison 3500SP and other power transmission components ensure the maximum speed of the vehicle which exceeds 110 km/h. The hull which is made of armoured sheet steel in its basic version ensures a very high level of ballistic protection (Level III on the front side and Level II on the other sides as per the NATO standard Stanag 4569), as well as a high level of anti-mine protection (Levels IIa and IIb as per STANAG 4569). The BOV M16 vehicle is intended for the performance of numerous tactical missions and for that purpose it can be equipped with different types of weapons and specialized equipment: day and night remote control weapon station equipped with 12.7mm machine gun, different types of manually controlled armoured turrets equipped with machine guns and grenade launchers, long-range anti-tank guided missile systems (5 to 8.5 km), AD rocket systems, as well as optoelectronic thermal imaging and TV and radar systems for the border control and surveillance which are mounted on telescopic masts of different heights.

The vehicle has 5 loopholes for firing with personal armament during anti-ambush operations, observation holes with ballistic protection, air-conditioning and NBC protection systems, modern communication equipment, Command Information System, and night vision and driving cameras.

The wheels with “Run Flat” inserts ensure the mobility of the vehicle up to 50 km
in case the tires are seriously damaged, and they also feature the central tire inflation system. Owing to the wheels with 20 inch aluminum rims, the vehicle has a robust appearance and features high mobility and off-road capability. The clearance of the vehicle is 420mm and the maximum weight is 14 tons.
