Nexter-Renault Trucks to Cooperate on VBMR Program
Nexter Systems and Renault Trucks Defense have signed a cooperation agreement to offer a unique solution to fulfill the request for proposal for the VBMR program.
The VBMR program is intended to provide the French Army with a modernized capability in the multirole/medium range wheeled armored vehicle segment (20 ton class, 6x6 design suitable for mission variants).
The organizational scheme agreed upon by Nexter Systems and Renault Trucks Defense sets up a responsive industrial prime contractorship, focused on delivering an integrated, cost-effective, adaptable and dependable solution, whilst leveraging on the fields of excellence of both groups.
With the aim of expanding commercial opportunities for VBMR vehicles beyond the French national acquisition program, the cooperation agreement also includes organizational provisions regarding export markets.
