The French VBCI Giat Nexter wheeled armoured vehicle selected by the British Ministry of Defence.

The VBCI (Véhicule Blindé de Combat d'Infanterie) armoured infantry fighting vehicle, has just been selected by the British Ministry of Defence to undergo a series of trials as part of the FRES (Future Rapid Effect System) programme intended to equip the British armed forces with a new medium-weight armoured vehicle. Let’s mention that 7 contenders were in the contest and that the British authorities selected 3 vehicles: the Boxer from Artec, the Piranha from General Dynamics and the VBCI from Nexter. Following this first step, Nexter will continue and intensify its efforts to work with the British industry, at all levels, as part of this program.
The VBCI was ordered by the French Army to equip the Army’s infantry regiments. The contract covers 700 vehicles available in two versions: infantry fighting vehicle and command post. The series production is already initiated with deliveries of the first production vehicles scheduled for 2008.
The VBCI was designed to meet the new threats facing the armed forces. Its protection level widely outclasses that of all current 8x8 vehicles and remains upgradeable. Its outstanding tactical mobility (from Renault Trucks Defense) relies on excellent crossing, acceleration and manoeuvring capabilities. Its road range of 750 km, its speed greater than 100 km/h and its air transportability provide it with significant strategic mobility. With its open electronic architecture and its internal volume of more than 13m3, the VBCI can be quickly configured into several versions or variants to meet the specific requirements of the British armed forces. .

British army order the new Mastiff Cougar variant

Britain is part of the general push by western countries to field heavier, mine-protected vehicles, via orders for the Mastiff Cougar variant and the forthcoming MPPV program. UK forces are also fielding vehicles like the Land Rover WMIK (Weapons Mounted Installation Kit) that have a very different concept: firepower and visibility over protection. The vehicles, derived from Cougars used by the American Marines, are six-wheeled mine-protected vehicles which have had around 50 modifications. As well as carrying infantry troops around danger zones with much more protection, they are also used by Royal Engineers and Bomb Disposal Teams
