Brazil set to issue RfP for 105 mm gun system

16 July 2014

The Brazilian Army is scheduled to issue by August a request for proposals (RfP) to purchase a 105 mm turreted gun system intended to arm the service's future 8x8 armoured reconnaissance vehicle, known locally as VBR (Viatura Blindada de Reconhecimento).

The objective is to award a contract in 2014, a source close to the programme told IHS Jane's . The RfP will be made available to the four companies who answered the request for information (RfI) in 2013 as well to other possible bidders.

A contract for one turret with an option for one pilot batch is scheduled to be awarded by the army´s Manufacturing Directorate within the service's Department of Science and Technology.
