Arquus is one of the three members of the short-term consortium to which the French Ministry of Defense awarded the Scorpion contract.
On Thursday October 11 last, the Armed forces handed over the first two VT4 vehicles to the 12th Régiment de Cuirassiers during a ceremony organized by the SIMMT, the Army structure in charge of the maintenance of all Land equipment, at the Satory military facilities. The ceremony was held in the presence of Major General Charles Beaudouin, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army, in charge of Plans and Programs.
This first delivery is part of the Scorpion program, announced in December 2016 by the Minister of Defense during his visit to the Arquus maintenance facility (and logistices center) in Fourchambault. A total of 3,700 vehicles will be delivered to the Army, out of 4380 ordered by the Defense Ministry. Production began in December 2017 at Arquus’ plant in Saint-Nazaire.
