Thales electronics for Belgian vehicles
The vehicles being supplied to Belgium under the Scorpion programme will be equipped with Thales vehicle electronics, the company announced on 16 July.
A total of 382 Griffon multi-role armoured vehicles (VBMR) and 60 Jaguar reconnaissance and combat vehicles (EBRC) are being delivered for the programme under a partnership between Arquus and Nexter.
Thales began work in June to provide vehicle electronics for Scorpion vehicles, which will include providing a comprehensive range of data capabilities for onboard intelligence that meet future data requirements for the land forces.
