Eurosatory 2024: Bronco Armored Amphibious Vehicle by ST Engineering Showcased.

At the Eurosatory 2024 exhibition, we witnessed the outdoor presentation of the Bronco All Terrain Tracked Carrier (ATTC), an amphibious armored vehicle designed to offer exceptional mobility on both roads and off-road terrain. Originating from Singapore and designed by ST Engineering, the Bronco ATTC is recognized for its versatility and its ability to operate in extreme environments, as demonstrated during the outdoor show at Eurosatory 2024.

In service since 2001, the Bronco has particularly distinguished itself through the Warthog model, customized for the British Army and deployed in Afghanistan for four years. With over 480,000 kilometers covered and 30 improvised explosive device attacks with no fatalities, the Bronco has proven its effectiveness and robustness.

Weighing 10.2 tons, the Bronco measures 8.6 meters in length, 2.2 meters in width, and 2.3 meters in height. It can transport a crew of one driver and up to 15 passengers (5 in the front and 10 in the rear), offering considerable mission space for soldiers and their equipment. Its protection is ensured by steel armor and an AMAP-ADS active protection system, guaranteeing the occupants' safety against ballistic threats and underbelly detonations thanks to its V-shaped hull.

Its Caterpillar 3126B engine with 350 horsepower allows it to reach a maximum speed of 60 km/h on paved roads and 25 km/h off-road, with a swimming capability of 4.5 km/h. It has been rigorously tested in extreme conditions, from the freezing temperatures of the Arctic (-45°C) to the scorching heat of the United Arab Emirates (49°C), demonstrating its reliability in diverse and hostile environments.

The flexibility of the Bronco is also a major asset. Its modular design, incorporating a CANBUS digital vehicle architecture and modern ergonomic interiors, allows it to be adapted for a variety of missions, whether combat support or service support. With over 40 available variants, the Bronco can be configured for missions as diverse as humanitarian assistance and disaster response.

In terms of deployment, the Bronco is designed to be easily transported by air, land, or sea. It is compatible with most military transport aircraft such as the C-130 or C-17, making it an ideal solution for expeditionary forces requiring rapid and effective mobility.

The Bronco All Terrain Tracked Carrier, presented at Eurosatory 2024, may not be a groundbreaking innovation, but the opportunity to see it in action was quite interesting. It demonstrated its capabilities, particularly its speed on challenging terrain, moving effortlessly on the Eurosatory outdoor demonstration field.
