The DAF YP408 is a Dutch 6×8 armoured car, with three out of four axles driven by the typical DAFH-drive. It has a 6-litre, 6-cylinder diesel engine, 5-speed gearbox and 2-speed transfer case.

Prototypes were developed in the later 1950s, production took place in the 1960s and YP408s were used until the 1980s.

A few examples are still use by the Polícia Aérea (Portuguese Air Force military police) in the air base security role.[1]
