Sherpa passes production milestone

20th May 2020 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Arquus has completed production of the 1,000 armoured vehicle in the Sherpa family at its Limoges factory.

‘The Sherpa’s commercial success, in all versions and configurations, has allowed for the foundation and growth of a durable and long-term industrial activity, combining modern methods, long-term expertise and high-quality design,’ the company announced in a 19 May statement.

Production of the Sherpa began in 2006 and the multipurpose vehicle is available in four baseline models: the Sherpa Scout (pictured), which is a light armoured vehicle for liaison and reconnaissance with room for four or five soldiers, also available in a station wagon configuration; the Carrier, which is equipped with a bed for troop or systems transport; an APC for troop-protected transport; and the Sherpa Special Forces, which is designed for missions behind enemy lines.

Arquus also produces an unarmoured version of Sherpa Scout.
