Avibras has delivered the third batch of ASTROS vehicles to the Brazilian Army, the company announced on 11 October.

The Brazilian Army has now received eight ASTROS MK6 vehicles: two fire control units that coordinate and control rocket launching procedures; three mobile meteorological stations that carry out the meteorological survey to maximise precision of the rockets; and three mobile combined workshops, which provide maintenance for missiles and rockets.

The new vehicles are part of the ASTROS 2020 programme that aims to develop the AV-TCM tactical cruise missile and the AV-SS-40G guided rocket, and modernise the vehicle fleet of the 6th GMF (Grupo de Mísseis e Foguetes – Missiles and Rockets Group).
