This year, Renault Trucks Defense has presented five armoured vehicles from its wide range of products including the Electer, the Dagger, the Sherpa Light, the VAB Mk3 and the Bastion.

Presented at Eurosatory 2016, the Electer parallel hybrid drive demonstrator from RENAULT TRUCKS Defense (RTD), the subject of an "advance design plan" (PEA) assigned by the French defense procurement agency DGA in 2012, has been tested in the past two years over a distance of more than 5000 km, half of which off-road.

This PEA, assigned to RENAULT TRUCKS Defense on December 21, 2012, is now completed, with 7 different modes of operation validated and capable of being installed on RTD products, with a view to meeting the requirements of modern military operations.

The Dagger is the new commercial name of the PVP, a 4x4 light armoured protected vehicle developed by the Panhard General Defense now a subdivision of Renault Trucks Defense. The vehicle is in service with the French army and was recently selected by the RAID, a SWAT Team of the French Police.

The Dagger has demonstrated its capacity to be one of the most secure combat vehicle available in the military market after the vehicle was exposed to mine blasts on two occasions during the Barkhane operation in March 2015. Additionally, PVPs operated by the Chilean police were exposed to direct intense firing in an ambush in June 2015. In all three events, the vehicle crew remained protected.

The VAB Mk3 is not an upgrade of the conventional VAB but a new vehicle design that is fully adapted to new threats on the battlefield such as IEDs and mine blast. The aim of this vehicle is to provide a replacement for the old BTR, M113 and VAB based on the design of a combat proven vehicle and a cheaper price.

At the demonstration, the VAB Mk3 was fitted with a remotely weapon station TRT-25 from BAE Systems. The TRT-25 is fitted with a dual-feed 25 mm M242 Bushmaster cannon with two 130-round bins, a 7.62 mm machinegun with 1,000 rounds, and four smoke grenade launchers.

The Bastion APC was unveiled at Eurosatory 2010 by the French Defence Company ACMAT, now a subdivision of Renault Trucks Defense.

The Bastion APC is a 4x4, high-mobility infantry and reconnaissance armoured vehicle developed based on the rugged chassis of the VLRA TDN-TDE series to provide a capable and reliable multirole platform.

The monocoque hull structure of Bastion APC has optimized body angles and a low silhouette for increased survivability. The high hardness armoured steel hull provides all-round protection against infantry rifles and machine guns (ballistic protection Level 1 to Level 3, NATO STANAG 4569) and artillery shell splinters.
