General Dynamics European Land Systems will deliver a fifth batch of Piranha III 8x8 wheeled armoured vehicles to the Romanian armed forces under a contract announced on 26 January.

Piranha has been in service with the Romanian armed forces since 2006.
Thomas Kauffmann, vice president international business and services, General Dynamics European Land Systems, said: ‘The Romanian Army is a very important Piranha user for General Dynamics European Land Systems and we are honoured by this contract award as it reflects the high confidence and satisfaction of the Romanian Army in this vehicle.’
