  • Description

    Bastion is a 4x4 armoured vehicle based on the VLRA chassis, conferring a low loading and a reduced visual signature. The armoured body offers a large internal volume as well as protection against ballistic attacks, mines and improvised explosive devices, according to STANAG 4569.

    The APC version of Bastion is particularly adapted for troops transport. Thanks to the modularity of the vehicle, the hull is also convertible in ambulance, cargo and command post variants. The vehicle is equipped with a 7.62 or 12.7 mm ring or a remote-controlled turret.

    Bastion has also been developed with an open hull for the Special Forces (the PATSAS version) and in a High Mobility version. Numerous African and Middle East countries have placed their trust in APC and PATSAS Bastions for maintaining and re-establishing peace, reconnaissance and combat.
