Franco-Russian Atom APC collaboration 'remains suspended'

17 June 2014

Renault Trucks Defence has contradicted reports that Franco-Russian collaboration on the development of the Atom armoured personnel carrier (APC) has recommenced.

Rosoboronexport deputy director general Igor Sevastianov was quoted by Russian state information service ARMS-TASS on 16 June as saying that the joint project was continuing successfully.

IHS Jane's had reported in April that the joint project had been suspended by Renault Trucks Defence following Russian activity in the Crimea earlier in the year. A campaign in the Swedish media reportedly persuaded Renault Trucks Defence parent company Volvo to suspend involvement.

A spokesman for Renault Trucks Defence told IHS Jane's on 18 June that the programme remains paused.
