The collaboration between French and Indonesian vehicle makers has extended to 6x6 APCs.

Indonesian state-owned firm PT Pindad and Arquus of France exhibited an Anoa 3 6x6 APC at Indo Defence 2022 in Jakarta. The Anoa 3 is a lightly customised version of the French VAB MK 3.

A statement from Arquus on 2 November noted that the VAB was displayed ‘in a configuration specifically thought for Indonesia, with several adaptations conducted by PT Pindad’.
