Partner of the French armies since 1898, Arquus is the first provider of land mobility solutions of the French Army, with more than 25,000 vehicles in service, including 10,000 logistics and tactical trucks. Historical specialist of military transport, the company has built its reputation on the GBC8KT, GBC180, TRM2000, TRM4000 and TRM10000, the VLRA and Sherpa Medium, which have been carrying a large part of the Army’s logistics and systems during the last decades. These product ranges, combat and time-proven on all theaters of operations, now give way to a new generation of logistics and tactical trucks, designed and produced in France: the ARMIS 4x4, ARMIS 6x6 and ARMIS 8x8, forged by Arquus’ centenary experience in military mobility solutions.

Designed specifically for the operational needs of the armies, on foreign theaters of operation as well as in domestic missions, these vehicles are fully adapted to the soldiers’ everyday needs. They benefit from decades of research on the design, use and support of tactical and logistics trucks for the military. Proud heirs to the GBC and TRM trucks, they fully integrate the experience of the current generation of army trucks. That everyday experience side by side with the armies is now brought forward to better serve the soldiers.

Built on fully military drivelines, developed on own equity by Arquus, the ARMIS 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 are reliable, dependable and robust, fully able to overcome the most demanding terrains and conditions. Mobile and enduring, they are adapted to long operational deployments and complex missions, with reduced maintenance needs. Versatile, the new generation ARMIS vehicles are able to fill the whole army logistics and tactical missions, troop transport, mobile tanker, mobile workshops, vehicle breakdown service and tank transport. Compatible with all the Scorpion equipment, the ARMIS also accommodate new-generation communication and information systems, as well as armament such as the Hornet RWS (remote-controlled weapon system) selected by the French Army as common equipment for all vehicles of the Scorpion program. Hence, the ARMIS 4x4 and 6x6 are equipped with specific variants of the VBMR Griffon's and EBRC Jaguar's engines.

Modular, the ARMIS trucks are available in several configurations, allowing for effectiveness, simplicity of use and tactical flexibility for the commander on the field. Depending on the mission at hand, they can be equipped with non-protected or protected cabins, compliant with STANAG 4569. Evolutionary, they can adapt to the operational needs and the threats met on the battlefield.

The trucks of the new ARMIS range benefit from the most recent technologies adapted to the operational needs and proven in the most demanding situations. These technologies, developed in Arquus’ R&D centers, provide the ARMIS 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 with optimal mobility on all grounds, limited fuel consumption and very high resistance, which guarantee optimal uptime and low cost of ownership. Thanks to these design choices, the ARMIS trucks are fitted with all necessary capabilities, at the best price.

The ARMIS can be equipped with the automation solutions currently being developed by Arquus, such as platooning and automatic convoys. They may be fitted with the Group’s most innovative solutions in the fields of energy optimization and maintenance. These solutions are available for the armies thanks to Arquus’ experience in terms of dual technologies and militarization. They simplify the necessary logistics and reduce maintenance needs.
