Background
Timoney MkIII, 6723 ZU was sent to Belgium for demonstration purposes from June 22nd to 25th, 1976 and this resulted in an order from the Belgium Government. A licence was granted to Beherman Demoen to build the BDX, an improved version of the Timoney MkIV APC, the MkV to be known as the BDX. It was manufactured for their own use and for export to Argentina and, later, 2nd hand examples were sold to Mexico where they are still in service.
