French armor

French company RENAULT TRUCKS Defense, one of the world's leaders in the design and manufacturing of armored vehicles, will present its new lineup of tactical vehicles and light armor at Russia Arms EXPO 2013 (RAE 2013), the IX International Exhibition of Arms, Military Equipment, and Ammunition. The Sherpa Light family of 4x4 combat vehicles, designed to carry infantry and law enforcement personnel, is characterized by lightweight armor, excellent maneuverability, and great all-terrain mobility. These multi-purpose vehicles are easy to airlift and can be fitted with add-on armor kits (for ballistic, mine, and IED protection) and weapon systems without compromising mobility or payload.


The Sherpa Light is powered by a 215-horsepower Renault diesel with huge torque (800 Nm @ 1200-1700 rpm) and up to Euro V emission compliance. Its 0.6-m ground clearance guarantees great all-terrain capability and adds protection from IEDs. Besides, the Sherpa Light can climb gradients of up to 100% and side slopes of up to 40% and cross a trench up to 0.9 meters deep.   Its maximum fording capacity is 1.5 meters.
The Sherpa Light lineup now consists of 5 different versions to suit all needs of the military and internal security forces. Its unified drivetrain reduces maintenance and lifecycle costs. According to customer demands, the vehicles are available with different wheelbases, cabs, protection levels, weapons, and equipment.
At RAE 2013, visitors will see the Sherpa Light Scout. Available in both armored and unarmored version, this model is ideally suited for tactical missions such as reconnaissance, scouting, convoy escort, and so on. The vehicle is fitted with a roof-mounted weapon system and can carry 4 to 5 soldiers.
Along with the Sherpa Light Scout, RENAULT TRUCKS Defense will exhibit at RAE 2013 its Bastion Acmat and VBL vehicles.
RENAULT TRUCKS Defense, a holding company with ACMAT Defense and PANHARD Defense, is one of the leaders in the manufacturing of a wide range of tactical vehicles, wheeled armored vehicles, and armor vehicle drivetrains. RENAULT TRUCKS Defense is part of the Volvo Group multi-brand holding and a legacy supplier of the French Armed Forces.
