Renault Trucks Defense presents the VAB Mark III at MILIPOL Qatar 2016 exhibition

Renault Trucks Defense presented the VAB Mark III medium wheeled armoured vehicle  on its stand at the 11th International Exhibition of Homeland Security in the Middle East, MILIPOL  Qatar, from 31 October to 2 November.

The VAB Mark III is a 20 t 6×6 medium armored vehicle which is as rugged and reliable as its predecessor but with far superior capabilities through the use of very advanced protection and mobility technologies: increased power and payload (up to 4.7 t), larger internal volume, better tactical situational awareness, reinforced protection.

Renault Trucks Defense has envisioned several variants thanks to the modular VAB Mk3 platform: armored personnel carrier, infantry combat vehicle, ambulance, ISTAR (intelligence, surveillance and targeting), 120 mm mortar carrier, command post…


An open and evolutive electronic architecture developed by Renault Trucks Defense is also fitted to reinforce the modularity and scalability of the vehicle while enhancing combat efficiency of the complete system.
