Arquus is developing on its own equity, a vehicle which combines the most advanced technologies related to mobility, protection and collaborative combat : The Scarabee.

Offering collaborative ergonomics and maximal comfort, it will enable innovative energy management and exceptional payload.

Equipped with powerful and modern firepower, it will be an essential actor of collaborative combat. Moreover, simple vehicle maintenance will make it optimal for foreign operations.

Arquus Scarabee is to be proposed for the French Armed Forces VBAE program, part of the Scorpion global modernization initiative.  Also, Arquus is expected to market the Scarabee to export markets in Eastern Europe and Africa where a number of nations have requirements for new 4×4 vehicles.
