The new launch of the ARMIS vehicle family with two to four-axle logistics and tactical trucks took place in the electronic exhibition e-Xpo due to the unusual Eurosatory. The all-military drive trains of the ARMIS are designed to cope with the most demanding of terrain and conditions and are suitable for long operations and complex missions with low maintenance requirements. The modular structure enables different configurations. Depending on the application requirements, the trucks can be equipped with unprotected or protected cabins in accordance with STANAG 4569. The possible range of vehicles covers tasks such as troop, system, tank or mobile workshop transport up to vehicle repairs and tow trucks.

The ARMIS vehicles are compatible with the Scorpion equipment and are prepared for communication and information systems of the new generation as well as for armament, for example with the remote controlled weapon system Hornet, which was selected by the French army as common equipment for all vehicles of the Scorpion program . The ARMIS 4 × 4 and 6 × 6 are equipped with specific variants of the engines of the Griffon and Jaguar vehicles.

Automation solutions that are currently being developed by Arquus, such as platooning and automatic convoys, are available for the trucks. Arquus provides solutions in the areas of energy optimization and maintenance to simplify logistics and reduce maintenance requirements. The solutions are based on operational experience and use synergies between civil and military technologies.

Arquus offers extensive logistical support for the new trucks as well as for the imported trucks. The fleet management instrument optimizes the use of vehicles and coordinates programmed repairs to operational requirements. In the recently established logistics center in Garchizy, spare parts for all Arquus military vehicles are concentrated and vehicle maintenance is coordinated at the locations. Dedicated servers are the basis for quick access to all spare parts and the control of the teams of maintenance staff and thus the basis for high availability of the device for the team.

Arquus wants to demonstrate the performance of new ARMIS trucks at an event in the second half of 2020.
