Missions Possible

At Russia Arms EXPO 2013 (RAE 2013), the IX International Exhibition of Arms, Military Equipment, and Ammunition, ACMAT Defense, one of the world leaders in the design and manufacturing of combat armored vehicles and light trucks, will present its new lineup of the  BASTION, VLRA, and ALTV tactical combat vehicles.


Launched in 2010, the BASTION is designed on the underpinnings of the VLRA2 all-terrain truck. Combining great mobility, protection, and high carrying capacity, it is suited for various missions in extreme conditions. This all-wheel-drive truck can be used in military transport operations, by internal security forces, medics, and so on. Its high internal volume allows it to carry 10 to 12 people and protect them in accordance with STANAG 4569.
At RAE 2013, visitors will see different versions of the BASTION: BASTION APC, BASTION PATSAS, and BASTION APC Extreme Mobility, all of which can be further upgraded to suit individual customer needs. The BASTION PATSAS was designed by ACMAT Defense specialists on the base of experience acquired in conflicts in Africa and Middle East. The vehicle's open top allows it to carry heavy weapon systems, missile launchers, and surveillance systems. Like other open-top ACMAT Defense vehicles, the BASTION PATSAS is a unique solution for autonomous special operation missions requiring maximum tactical mobility and firepower.
The Bastion APC Extreme Mobility with a 320-hp engine was launched in 2012. Unlike the standard version, the new model has independent suspensions and armor protection ranging from level 1 to level 3. Its payload varies respectively from 3 tons (level 1) to 2.5 tons (level 2) and to 1.5 tons (level 3), while its mine protection rises to level 2a/2b. The Bastion APC Extreme Mobility carries eight troops and two crew.
Founded in 1984, ACMAT Defense became part of RENAULT TRUCKS Defense in 2006. ACMAT Defense is the manufacturer of the famous VLRA tactical transport vehicle family fielded by the French Army (over 1,200 units) and many other armed forces.


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.
