As the Defense News reported, referring to an official French official, a couple of weeks ago, four light wheeled armored vehicles made by Renault Trucks French company (part of the Renault Trucks association controlled by Volvo) were delivered to Russia for testing in the interests of the Russian Interior Ministry. Group) - two PVP machines and two VBLs (as can be understood - modifications of the Mk 2). Machines are tested at the site "in the Caucasus at Sochi." It is alleged that the Russian army is also showing interest in the PVP armored vehicle, although Renault Trucks Defense has officially denied that the vehicles were sent for testing by the military.


The aforementioned official reported that it is a question of the possibility of Russia purchasing "several hundred" VBL machines directly in France.

The newspaper in its publication is on a number of other projects currently being implemented in the field of Russian purchases of military products in Western European countries. Thus, a representative of the French shipbuilding association DCNS said that the construction programs for Russia of two universal landing ships of the Mistral type and the delivery of equipment for them (radar and SENIT ASBU) "are moving ahead, as expected." The representative of the French Ministry of Defense Pierre Beyle said: "There is Ukraine, on the one hand, and there is French-Russian cooperation on the other."

In a statement released by 7 in March, the German concern Rheinmetall declared that it was fulfilling its obligations towards the Russian side under the 2011 agreement of the year worth 100 million euros to build the training center of the Russian Defense Ministry in Mulino. “It is in the delivery stage and is supposed to be commissioned this year. ... We do not want to speculate about the possible consequences of further deterioration of the political climate with Russia,” Rheinmetall said. - "In principle, Rheinmetall continues to see good potential in the Russian market. Nevertheless, at present there are no specific tenders in which we participate."

As for the transaction for the purchase by Russia in Italy of 358 light armored vehicles Iveco LMV, it has been stalled for some time, and, according to an Italian source, for Russian domestic political reasons due to pressure from Russian manufacturers. According to this source, only 57 machines were fully equipped in Russia, where they were parked and not used for a year. More 126 machines were delivered, but without part of the nodes that are in Italy ready to be shipped. The rest of the cars are ready for shipment to Russia. According to the source, the pace of Russian acceptance of cars has slowed down - perhaps due to the growing pressure in favor of purchasing Russian-made cars.

        Yeah and said the world leader of the proletariat is speaking from the British armored car "Austin" smile
        By the way, it was on Panhard cars that a wheel in the form of a circle appeared for the first time in the world.

      Well, why not buy ??? Do not buy the loyalty of France and the car in addition ??? Money rules all over the world and if in this way it is possible to break the unanimity of the West, then this is quite a worthy move, it seems to me ...

    If the grandmas paid, you need to select the remaining nodes and collect ...

    Again "Panar" got out ... How many people have already found fault with it (expensive, weakly protected, uncomfortable, with poor visibility), but no, the smoking room is alive, trying to squeeze into the Russian market. Well, in the military industry, one cannot be guided by imports; Fight with another former ally and be left without spare parts, components, electronics and so on, so on. True, in the case of Renault, everything is much more interesting, they would rather push Hollande rather than remain without our market, because AvtoVAZ is half their enterprise, and Renault-Nissan revived the Datsun brand almost because of us ...

    Some sort of heresy. Can't we create armored cars ourselves? What about "tiger", "wolf"? What to do with them? Better instead of foreign "ferrous metal" bought their cars.

    And it seems to me that this is a purely political move, so that France does not impose sanctions against Russia and does not order others. Although, it seems to me, to promise to buy two more Mistral would be enough.

    Such contracts with the West helped Russia when the question of sanctions arose: they immediately started to mumble something, Merkel made it clear that her industrialists would tear to shreds because of a breakdown in relations with Russia. How they started to think how to punish the Russian Federation - everywhere it does not work, except for visas wink

    A nice machine, of course, but its necessity is in question - you can take a little part or another, but no more - you can study the nodes, line-up, outposts on the border of Kazakhstan can be completed. Another thing - on spare parts and fuels and lubricants we go broke.

    All right, the French took the eggs firmly and did not expand, then let some cars test, then others, wheeled tanks. As long as the essence and the matter, they will definitely not swing sanctions.

    Let me remind you - on March 5, the Mistral-class landing ship Vladivostok left Nazaire for sea trials. The French side reaffirmed the principles of further interaction, on which the situation with Ukraine will not have any impact.

    And finally, let's put an end to the sanctions - I was driving in the car and using my knowledge of the language listened to the BBC about what was happening in Brussels. So I'm reporting - there will be sanctions !!! Steep sanctions, but ... All of them will be directed at officials of the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation and members of the Government of the Russian Federation. To which Rogozin wrote on his Twitter "Boo-ha-ha !!!" In general, Europe has depicted the most violent activity in front of the United States, canceling insignificant and, at the same time, agreements that have not yet been concluded, intending to punish those whom it cannot a priori punish. For in the Russian Federation now there is not a single official who has accounts abroad ... There is real estate, but a year ago the GDP personally warned everyone that Russia would not stand up for those who did not fulfill its orders.
