Arquus launches ARMIS range through e-xpo
Arquus launched its e-xpo interactive showroom on 8 June as a response to the cancellation of the Eurosatory 2020 show.
On the first day of the virtual showcase, which runs until 31 July and is hosted on the company website, Arquus launched its new ARMIS range of logistics and tactical trucks including the 4x4, 6x6 (pictured) and 8x8 models. They have been designed for military use and are capable of operating on a variety of demanding terrains and in a range of environmental conditions.
ARMIS vehicles feature new-generation communication and information systems as well as the Hornet Remote-Controlled Weapon Systems (selected by the French Army).
The company also confirmed that it is planning an event in the second half of 2020 which will also display new capabilities across its full range of products.
