The VBCI is a combat proven vehicle which was deployed on the field in Mali (2013), Afghanistan (2010-2012), and Lebanon (2011). Since 2008, date of first entry into service with the French army (630 ordered, 550 already delivered), the VBCI, 8x8 armoured infantry fighting vehicle, has set itself as the main asset of the French Forces, able to turn the power balance on the battlefield.

The VBCI was designed to replace the old tracked armoured infantry fighting vehicle AMX-10P, which was used by the mechanised units of the French Army.

The VBCI in armoured infantry combat vehicle variant is equipped with with a one-man Nexter Dragar turret armed with a dual feed 25mm Nato cannon type 25 M811 with 150 rounds in the turret and a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun.

The hull and the turret of the VBCI Nexter Systems is composed by Welded steel and aluminium, who offers a protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. To increase the protection, the welded steel and aluminium alloy hull is fitted with spall liners and add-on titanium armour plate to protect against anti-tank weapons.

The VBCI is a fully developed product, produced by a group of companies, formed by Nexter Systems and Renault Trucks Defense, that meets these operational requirements in terms of strategic, operational and tactical mobility, and also in terms of protection and configuration changes, to meet the requirements of various types of mission.
