France sells NERVA LG unmanned ground vehicles to the Gabonese armed forces

France sells  NERVA LG unmanned ground vehicles to the Gabonese armed forces, according to the company Nexter.

At Eurosatory 2016 in Villepinte, Paris this week, Nexter Group signed new contracts with the Gabonese Republic to provide NERVA LG unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to the Gabonese armed forces. The UGVs will be fitted with mission equipment to fulfil several roles and are additional to an initial quantity of the reconnaissance robots supplied in 2014, which Gabon is currently deploying with MINUSCA in the Central African Republic.

Also included in the new contracts are a number of FINDSAT positioning systems, mobile medicak shelters from Nexter subsidiary Euro-Shelter and a number of NX-100 unmanned aerial systems (UAS) from partner company NOVADEM.


These contracts follow on from the initial Gabonese order in 2014, which included Aravis 4×4 tactical vehicles equipped with the ARX20 remote weapon station and the PG Guard protection system as well as the NERVA LG UGV.
