The Austrian Army has received its first four BvS10 all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in the Austrian state of Tyrol and city of Salzburg. The ATVs were delivered by Britain’s biggest defense company BAE Systems. The four are the first of 32 BvS10s worth EUR85 million (USD96 million) alongside other weaponry and equipment to enhance the infantry’s capability.
The first set of vehicles will be fielded by the Austrian Armed Forces’ 24th Infantry Battalion, a battalion of the 6th Mountain Infantry Brigade, which plays a leading role in the European Union Mountain Training Warfare Initiative (EU MTI).
The Austrian BvS10 APC variant can accommodate changing mission requirements and has been designed to operate in multiple terrains to deliver personnel or cargo in combat and disaster relief missions.
