RTD presents its VAB MARK 3 APC amphibious version


The latest offering from RENAULT TRUCKS Defense, presented on the stand in the Combat and Support zone alongside the 90mm version, meets export specifications with an amphibious APC version.

Developed using internal funding, it stands out from the rest of the VAB range - which stretches back 40 years - on account of its significantly superior capabilities and a cost of acquisition and ownership far lower than its competitors. This 20-tonne 6x6, equipped with a 340 hp engine and automatic gearbox, can reach speeds of up to 105 kph and can be driven on the road.

Transporting two crew members and with a passenger capacity of 10 soldiers in its APC version, it meets the highest requirements in terms of crew protection. It can also be fitted with a CMI 90 mm turret gun with two crew members and four soldiers. The amphibious version presented, as well as enabling the traversing of water barriers, can also be used for landing operations.

The catalog contains all the versions capable of equipping a joint services tactical group: infantry combat, fire support, reconnaissance, troop transport, mortar, command & control, and all the usual versions of a VAB-type collection, at an affordable cost. It is currently being manufactured for several export clients.
