Strategic Cooperation Result: 382 Griffon and 60 Jaguar July 1, 2019


The intergovernmental strategic cooperation agreement between the Government of the France and Belgium on their cooperation in the field of land mobility, came into force on June 21.

This contract calls for the delivery to the Belgian Army of 382 Griffon multi-role armoured vehicles and 60 Jaguar data-driven reconnaissance and combat vehicles between 2025 and 2030, both of which are developed by a consortium formed of Nexter, Thales and Arquus. These vehicles will be equipped to the specifications of France's Scorpion land modernisation programme and will be compatible with the equivalent French vehicles that are being procured.

The Belgian and French land forces will conduct an initial joint training exercise in Belgium in September 2019 to test command procedures.
