This version has been developed for use in desert environments and for COIN type operations, thanks to 4×4, which provides great maneuverability in rough terrain, having the ability to carry up to six men, with their respective team-and also having weapons station in the middle of the vehicle to which it is accessed by a turret, that can mount a machine gun – a Browning M-2HB-QCB 12.7 mm or a U.S. Ordnance M-60 7.62 mm.

One option is to fit a Rafael remote controlled weapon station on the Zibar.
