Brazil set to launch vehicle weapon stations tender

26 April 2017

The Brazilian Army is aiming to launch a competition next month to supply a number of manually-operated protected weapon stations for its new wheeled armoured vehicles.

A request for quotation is slated to be issued in early May by the Brazilian Army Commission in Washington on behalf of the army's Logistics Command (COLOG), but administrative procedures could slightly delay that schedule. The number of initial weapon stations to be procured by the COLOG is yet to be defined, a source told Jane's .

The effort is part of Strategic Project Guarani, run by the Army Projects Office, which includes long-term procurement of 1,770 stations for installation on Iveco VBTP-MR Guarani 6x6 and Light Multirole Vehicle (LMV) 4x4 armoured carriers for cavalry and infantry mechanised brigades, Jane's was told on 25 April.
