BAE, Goriziane partner on BvS10
Under the companies’ current agreement, Goriziane Group already supports the BvS10’s predecessor, the BV206 all-terrain vehicle, extending it to include joint marketing and sales of the BvS10.
The Italian military is one of the largest users of the BV206 and BV206S vehicles, and BAE Systems believes the BvS10, which offers improved mobility, better soldier protection, and lower life-cycle costs, is suited for the Italian armed forces’ mission profile.
The combat-proven BvS10 is designed to operate in difficult terrain while offering fully amphibious capability for littoral operations, making it capable of accessing remote regions.
Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, general manager of BAE Systems Hagglunds, said: ‘Our new, extended agreement with Goriziane Group further demonstrates BAE Systems’ commitment to work closely with industries in the countries we do business in to support government programmes and local economies. Goriziane Group’s excellent record of producing high quality work has made it a trusted partner for years.’
