The BMR-625 VEC is an amphibious 6x6 vehicle, intended for cavalry reconnaisance that entered service in 1980. As a derivative of the well known BMR, the VEC retained most components from the BMR, with a different hull shape and internal distribution. The main VEC variant featured an italian TC-25 turret, manufactured under license by Santa Bárbara, armed with the M242 Bushmaster cannon, and also an MG3 7.62mm machinegun

In 1994 a modernization process was started. New features include additional armor to protect against 14.5mm ammunition, a new, lighter Scania DS9-61A245MIL engine producing 310 horsepower, and a covered exhaust to reduce the thermal signature of the vehicle. This upgrade was the VEC-M1.

As far as I could read at various websites and forums, at some point the thermals from the AMX-30E2s were fitted to the vehicle. From what I could find online, this was not part of the M1 upgrade package, but rather a separate upgrade. If anyone could provide information on this it would be greatly appreciated.
