Our mission in the Scorpion Project

Arquus is one of the three members of the short-term consortium to which the French Ministry of Defense awarded the Scorpion contract. We are thus contributing to the new generation of French Army vehicles: the VBMR multirole armored reconnaissance and combat vehicle and the EBRC armored reconnaissance and combat vehicle. Our company is responsible for supplying the drivelines and small remote weapons systems for the two vehicles. We will also be providing the spare parts and components logistics for the Scorpion program.
