Romania stays the course with Piranha V

Romania will maintain its programme to acquire the Piranha V 8x8 APC, as the NATO member state continues plans to modernise the Romanian Army's wheeled armoured vehicle fleet.

Piranha V and 'derivatives of the same platform' are needed to ensure Romanian Army capabilities match NATO requirements, the spokesperson claimed.
