Bulgaria is to halt the procurement of six SandCat 4×4 armored vehicles

Bulgarian Defense Minister Nikolay Nenchev announced that the country is to halt the procurement of six SandCat 4×4 armored vehicles. A contract was earlier placed to Plasan of Israel for several vehicles aimed for the country’s military police. Bulgaria earlier purchased several identical vehicles under separate orders, with some having remote-controlled weapon stations.

It is based on an upgraded commercial of-the-shelf Ford F-Series 4×4 chassis, adapted by Oshkosh Defense for military use and fitted with modular armour developed by Plasan

Nenchev also announced that a contract with Textron Marine & Land Systems for the supply of additional COMMANDO Select 4×4 armoured vehicles will be halted.
