In the early 90s, the Jeunese military began to re-evaluate its fleet of M113 armored personnel carriers and M2/M3 IFVs. The decision to produce a domestic vehicle, rather than procure a foreign model, came about as a result of Jeunese concerns about the effectiveness of models available to the military, but also as the result of the financial troubles of Hsiao Motor Corp., a domestic company that was and is a major source of jobs and income in Jeuna.
The general design specifications were forwarded to HMC early in 1992, and the next two years saw the development stage of the 'XB-92', as it was dubbed. This stage lasted for another two years, while the project changed faces numerous times. The design is conservative: the main armament is a conventional 30 mm chain gun, the engine is a V-12 diesel, run-flat wheels were foregone in favor of caterpillar tracks and the suspension system was designed as a simple torsion bar.
In 1995, the first prototype model was released for field testing, where it was accepted by the Jeunese military and given the designation Type 95/1. Subsequent upgrades since 1997 have been the inclusion of explosive reactive armor (upgraded to heavy ERA in 2001), a targeting systems upgrade and automation of the secondary 7.62 mm machine gun.
