A front view of the VBR display by Panhard at Eurosatory 2004The latest wheeled armored vehicle from Panhard is the VBR, an all-protected high mobility platform.  This vehicle is a 10 ton class 4x4 wheeled APC with a combat weight of 7.5 tons, and a payload of 2.2 ton payload capability. The VBR is well protected against small arms, anti-tank mines and CBR threats. The vehicle will be equipped with an overhead remote control weapon station. It can be equipped with a variety of weapon systems, including a 40mm automatic gun or multi-purpose/air-defense missile turret. Panhard expects VBR to address the requirements of the French Army for a future close-contact battle. Also in development is the AVXL, a fully protected command vehicle, which can be configured to carry up to eight fully equipped troops.
