These kits, which were ordered by the French defense procurement agency (DGA) in December 2010, include overhauling the fuel circuit, bringing the safety equipment up to standard, and replacing the decontamination systems.

Having developed the kit, which was qualified by the DGA and the STAT (French Army Technical Department), ACMAT is upgrading the vehicles at the Fontevraud military site, the garrison of the 2nd Regiment of Dragoons – Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (2ème RDNBC), the French regiment specialising in the NBC decontamination of equipment. The Model 2 NBC Liaison, Reconnaissance and Support Vehicle (VLRA NBC F2) is an in-depth decontamination system capable of decontaminating fifteen armoured vehicles (such as VAB) in three hours.

The decontamination unit produces hot water up to 90°C, pressurised steam and dry steam. It allows two spray lances to be used simultaneously. Decontamination is performed by removal using hot water (up to 90°C) under pressure (up to 100 bar), or by neutralisation using a decontaminant solution.

The VLRA NBC F2 is air transportable by TRANSALL C-160 and HERCULES C-130 aircraft. The technical control contract as a whole is worth over 3 million euros, and deliveries will continue until June 2012.
