The French defence industry wants to show its capacities to modernize the Albanian army with the participation of Renault Trucks Defense, a company leader in the design of armoured vehicles, which presents two of its new products, the Sherpa APC armoured personnel carrier and its new modernized armoured vehicle the VAB Mark II, equipped with new armour Level 4. Since 1850, the Marck Group is a French company based in Paris, which is specialized in the design, the production and the sale of uniforms, body armour and military equipment.
The « Sherpa Light » family of 4x4 tactical and light armoured vehicles is designed to provide light forces (infantry, paratroopers, marines, internal security…) with the best mobility / payload compromise of its category. In addition to its outstanding on and off-road performances, the Sherpa Light is fully air transportable (A400M / C-130), multirole and ready for being up-armoured (ballistic and mine kits). The Sherpa Light has already been adopted by NATO, France and other countries.
The “Armoured Personnel Carrier” is a 3 doors protected troop transport version for up to 10 soldiers with their equipments. It is also able to receive any mission or weapon system thanks to a large internal volume.
