ABSTRACT
The article reports on the introduction of new European vehicles that combine mobility and protection to soldiers in Afghanistan. The move was in response to the challenges faced by the mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) trucks and the vulnerability of French and British mobile vehicles to roadside bombs. The French army will deploy the Aravis armored vehicle, while Great Britain is working on its Light Protected Patrol Vehicle (LPPV) program.
