Viking

The UK Ministry of Defence has awarded BAE Systems a contract for an additional 21 BvS10 Viking armoured all-terrain vehicles. The UK's Royal Marine Commandos took delivery of an earlier batch of 108 in July 2003.

The BAE Systems Hagglunds armoured all-terrain vehicles will be used for transporting equipment for the Watchkeeper unmanned aerial vehicle. Production deliveries will commence second half of 2008 with prototype vehicles being delivered at the end of 2007.

The Viking was selected due to its high load capacity, protection and mobility. Hagglunds' director for marketing and sales, Arne Berglund, says: "The performance, reliability and cost efficiency of the BvS10 is good news, both for the soldiers in the front line and the taxpayer."
