BAE Systems and the Gorizioni Group SpA have signed an agreement to jointly provide engineering and maintenance support to the BvS10 armoured all-terrain vehicle.
The agreement would increase cooperation on marketing and sales of the BvS10 along with engineering and maintenance support. The companies have already collaborated on the older BV206 ATV.
The BvS10 Beowulf is a successor platform to the BV206 tracked all-terrain vehicle that is widely used by over 40 countries. It is designed for use in extremely harsh terrain as a personnel and cargo carrier.
The vehicle has a dual body chassis and is capable of amphibious operations. It is equipped with a rubber track system that does not inflict damage on roads and is capable of climbing 60-degree slopes, ice, and heavy vegetation.
The BvS10 can carry up to 14 personnel and over eight tons of cargo at speeds of 40 mph. In addition to military operations in remote conditions, it is marketed as a fire-fighting, search-and-rescue, and natural disaster response vehicle.
Countries under contract to receive or are already operating the BvS10 include Austria, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
