Nexter signs French Army VBCI support contract

9th April 2014 - 07:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Nexter Group will support the French Army’s VBCI armoured infantry combat vehicle under a contract signed on 4 April. The Support in Services contract (MSS) will ensure the continued availability of the fleet for the next ten years.

The contract will come into effect on 1 August, and will replace the work already conducted between Nexter and the French ministry of Defence maintenance in operational condition department (SIMMT) under an initial Series Logistics contract.

This previous contract has seen the vehicle supported throughout its use in operations such as PAMIR in Afghanistan, DAMAN in Lebanon, SERVAL in Mali, as well as the maintenance of the training fleet in Champagne.

The new contract will be structured around purchase orders, to enable the army to regulate financial commitments to meet their needs based on the actual use of the fleet. Technical expertise services will concurrently ensure the continued existence of supply flows.
