French defence minister Jean-Yves Le Drian visits Fourchambault

It was at Fourchambault that French minister Jean-Yves Le Drian announced that Renault Trucks Defense (RTD) would be replacing the Army’s famous Peugeot P4 vehicles - excellent news for Renault’s order book.

“I am very happy to announce that Renault will produce and deliver 3,700 vehicles to the armed forces”, declared Jean-Yves Le Drian. “I wanted French industry to be given every opportunity. And it was.”

A year later, President Emmanuel Levacher inaugurated the new ALTV light tactical vehicle range at the Milipol 2017 event. Using the same basic design, Renault can now offer French security forces and the export market a fully-equipped police station wagon and two ATLV pick-ups, with single and double cabs, to be used on rugged or desert terrain.
