The Czech Ministry of Defense seeks to replace about 700 Russian-made UAZ and British Land Rover Defender vehicles in service with the country’s army (ACR).

The MoD will soon issue a public tender to replace the light 4x4 vehicles in service with the ACR. The MoD will also select a replacement for its 115 Iveco LMV lightly armored vehicles in service since 2008, IHS Janes reported Thursday.

"We want to be prepared for the replacement process that must begin in 2020 and do not want to find ourselves in a situation where we would be forced to procure something quickly under pressure," Czech defence minister Martin Stropnicky told media on 28 February while attending a vehicle demonstration event at the ACR's Vyskov testing facility.
