Austrian Defense Ministry is negotiating the purchase of armored all-terrain vehicles BvS-10

The Swedish government has begun negotiations to conclude a contract for the supply of the Armed Forces of Austria armored tracked BvS-10 all-terrain vehicles to the company BAE Systems Hagglunds (BAE Systems Hagglunds).


It is planned to sell the sale according to a scheme similar to the American program “Foreign military sales”.

According to the Defense News, under the agreement it is expected to supply 20 new armored BvS-10 Mk.2B all-terrain vehicles, which will be added to the order for 102 armored vehicles of this type for the Swedish armed forces as part of the overall production program.

Cost, schedule and other terms of sale have not yet been agreed, however, according to the parties, the joint purchase of new equipment will reduce the cost of purchasing and its maintenance during operation.

At the same time, negotiations are under way on the possibility of purchasing for the Austrian armed forces a similar number of reconditioned vehicles from the armed forces of Sweden.

In case of successful completion of negotiations, Austria will become the fifth buyer of armored BvS-10 all-terrain vehicles after Sweden, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and France.

The MoD of Sweden ordered 48 all-terrain vehicles BvS-10 Mk.2B in January 2012 of the year and exercised the option to supply additional 102 vehicles in December to 2013 of the year. The cost of the second batch is estimated at 120 million dollars.

According to the BAE Systems, the assembly of the AFV for the Swedish Armed Forces under the current order will be carried out at the plant in Ornskoldsvik before 2015.

    I don’t know if such news is worth reporting. This is a trickle - giving nothing to the mind and the heart. We will not discuss what types of solid lubricants are used by the aircraft of Austria or Sweden. And which company supplies winter diesel fuel (diesel) for armored vehicles to these countries. This is interesting only to the GRU and they know it and are carefully studying it. But here it is better to focus on important, momentous events. Otherwise, we simply get bogged down in everyday life and will not be able to draw analytical conclusions. hi

      In general, the supply of military equipment is always interesting for those who read military equipment. Do not constantly discuss the same LGBT or Maidan. wink

    Russia once rolled such all-terrain vehicles, something did not go. For the Arctic, this is a good car and you can hang a lot on it. Must see.

In our place in Yamal they go through such places, you will believe in a miracle at the sight of this sight! In the Arctic, we already have these and most importantly, our cars You can install weapons modules, both cannon and rocket!
