(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - September 10, 2013:  The French Procurement Agency DGA (Direction générale de l’armement) has announced having taken delivery on last 19 January 2010 of the first four Nexter Aravis mine resistant ambush protected vehicles earmarked for the French Army. 

A total of fifteen such vehicles, dubbed VBHP — for Véhicule blindé hautement protégé –, was ordered in April 2009 for a sum of about €20 million. This specific procurement, made under a French Army crash programme (UOR), is aimed at providing the Armée de Terre’s Engineer Detachment on duty with ISAF in Afghanistan with a highly protected road reconnaissance vehicle likely to defeat and resist any standard IED explosion.
