There were 750 YP-408 (8 × 6) armoured personnel carriers built by DAF for the Royal Netherlands Army between 1964 and 1968. These were finally phased out of service early in 1990 with their replacement being the YPR 765, a Netherlands-built version of the United States FMC Armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle. A few YP-408s are still used for airport security, border patrol and by the Royal Military Police.

The South American country of Surinam also has nine vehicles in service.
