AMX-10P APCs Giat Industries has just received a firm EUR 50+ million contract from the DGA (French defense procurement agency) to upgrade the AMX 10P tracked Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs) in service with the French Army’s infantry regiments. The contract is being undertaken within the framework of a contract signed in March 2004 with the French state. The modifications will significantly increase the vehicles’ protection with the installation of add-on armour, while improving mobility by fitting new suspension systems and a strengthened gearbox. The AMX 10P tracked APCs will be upgraded by Giat Industries in their units between 2006 and 2008.
