Description 
During the French Defence Exhibition Eurosatory, Edition 2010, Renault Trucks Defense has introduced the latest generation of its range of wheeled armored vehicle, the VAB Mark 2, a modernized version of its wheeled armoured vehicle personnel carrier VAB. With its first-generation armored vehicle VAB (Vehicle de l’Avant Blindé), Renault Trucks has demonstrated the reliability and capabilities of this type of military vehicle, with more than 5,000 units used in the French army in over 30 versions, and several thousand copies in operations in many armed forces worldwide. To meet the new needs of the armed forces, as well as new threats of the battlefield, Renault Trucks Defense has started about two years ago a study phase for upgrading and improving its standard vehicle VAB.

Technical data 
Armament
VAB Mark 2 can be equipped with various weapons systems, including gun turrets with a conventional 7.62mm or 12.7mm, or remote-operated turret with up to a calibre of 30mm weapon, depending on the needs of customers. According to the manufacturer, the VAB Mark 2 could also accept more powerful turrets with 90 mm gun, after some slight modifications.
Protection
One of the biggest improvements on the VAB Mark 2 wheeled vehicle is its protection level. The VAB Mark 2 has a new welded steel armoured hull, on which was added a V-shaped deflector, thereby achieving a Level 4 protection against ballistic fire and explosive charges. All the windows of the front and sides of the vehicle have the same level of protection as the rest of the vehicle.
Propulsion
The VAB Mark 2 comes in two chassis versions, 4 x 4 and 6 x 6. The 4 x 4 Version is a lighter vehicle, suitable for road use and monitoring and security missions. With regard to its engine, the VAB Mark 2 has a new, more powerful, six-cylinder diesel engine delivering 320 hp. It is a DXi7 type made by Renault. The VAB Mark uses a 6x6 or 4x4 chassis.
Accessories
The comfort of the crew and infantry on board had been largely improved by increasing the interior volume from 9 to 11m³ This was achieved by increasing the height of the roof. The VAB Mark 2 features the latest technologies in seats and interior accessories.
