The Small armoured vehicle used by the French Army
In this way, Panhard's expertise in light wheeled vehicles supplements RTD's in medium to heavy wheeled vehicles, and that of its subsidiary ACMAT in light vehicles such as the ALTV (light tactical vehicle). Panhard General Defense has two sites: Marolles en Hurepoix and Saint-Germain Laval (former site of Auverland). Hundreds of examples of the VBL (light armoured vehicle) and PVP (small protected vehicle) are sold in France and abroad.
