A total of 98 multi-purpose combat vehicles will be supplied to Bulgarian SOF by 2023

Bulgarian SOF expect to receive their first batch of new armoured tactical vehicles by mid-2021, after the MoD placed an order via local manufacturer Samel 90 in late 2020.

SAMARM (a JV between Samel 90 and United Arab Emirates-based International Armored Group - IAG) is expected to provide 98 multi-purpose combat vehicles in ten variants under the deal, which is worth almost BGN50 million ($31 million).
