The French DGA, délégation générale pour l'armement or Armament Procurement
Agency, has awarded a €40 million ($48 million)
production contract to société nouvelle des automobiles Auverland (SNAA) for 314
petit véhicule protégé/protected small vehicles (PVP).
These vehicles ordered for the French Army will be delivered beginning in 2007. This
contract represents the first batch of a procurement program valued at €108
million ($135 million) for 933 armored vehicles. The €108 million figure also
includes manufacturing and support costs. The Auverland A4 AVL vehicle was
selected for the PVP program by the DGA and the French Army during
technical-operational comparative tests with other bidders underwent mainly at
the Ventoux mountain, France.
The French Army envisages that current and future operational scenarios will
require improved protection on military platforms, specially those of support
units. Basically, the all-terrain PVP vehicle has improved protection, air
transportability, and higher mobility than current systems.
The Auverland A4 AVL solution provides a seat capacity ranging from two to
seven, modular design for future growth, improved/innovative protection for
personnel and engine compartments due to aluminum and steel plates use, and
overall weight below five tons. The French solution results quite similar to UK
Future Combat and Liaison Vehicle (FCLV) solution.
