The Jaguar EBRC (Engin Blindé de Reconnaissance et de Combat - Reconnaissance and Combat Armoured Vehicle) is a development of a 6x6 Reconnaissance and Combat Armoured Vehicle for the French Army under the program EBMR Scorpion (Engin Blindé Multi-Rôles - Armoured Multi-roles Vehicles).

A total of 248 Jaguar 6x6 combat vehicles are planned for acquisition by the French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA) through its Scorpion program. The Scorpion Program is the most ambitious military program in the recent history of the French army. It consists of a $6.8 billion multi-company modernization effort aimed at replacing all French frontline fighting vehicles, with improved platforms linked with a new and unified communications and battlefield management system (BMS).

A total of 110 vehicles expected to be delivered to the French Army until 2025. In June 2017, the Belgian Council of Ministers gave its green light to a proposal of the Defense Minister Steven Vandeput for launching the acquisition of France-made armored vehicles. Under a US$1.2bn program, Belgium plans to purchase 60 Jaguar EBRC combat and reconnaissance vehicles.
