Background
The so-called Panhard AML 127, is a conversion of the AML 60 CS armoured car, that were delivered in 1964, and is unique to the Irish Army.

The upgrade consisted of fitting a Peugeot Diesel engine to replace the Panhard HD petrol engine, and a direct fire weapon, a Browning 12.7 mm MG, to replace the obsolete and dangerous 60 mm CS mortar, originally fitted to these armoured cars,

The conversion was designed and performed by Manroy Engineering and 16 vehicles were converted.
