Info
Manufacturer: Nexter  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Wheeled armoured personnel carrier  

The VAB Mark II was launched at Eurosatory 2010 as a successor to the famous and “combat proven” VAB already operational in more than 15 countries (5000 units). The VAB Mark II is as robust and reliable as the VAB but its capacities are far superior: more power (320 hp engine), more internal volume and payload, better situational awareness, more protection (ballistic kit up to STANAG 4569 Level IV + mines and IEDs kits).

The VAB Mark II is ideally suited for combat and peace keeping missions with the capacity to transport up to 2+10 soldiers. Several 6x6 and 4x4 variants from 15 to 18 tonnes are adaptable to any customer’s specific need: ambulance, command post, weapon systems carrier.

The vehicle is air-portable in a C-130 Hercules transport aircraft. Optional equipment includes reinforced air conditioning, an independent heater, a central tyre inflation system, a winch and amphibious capability.

In addition to marketing the VAB Mk II, Renault Trucks Defense is also offering to upgrade older vehicles with some elements of the new vehicle.
