The National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA) recently performed a test on a new version of VAMTAC ST5 in its facilities of La Marañosa which simulates of a mine or grenade remotely operated as a convoy passes through a conflict zone.
The Board in charge of awarding the prize decided that the award should go to Urovesa for the special relationship it has with the Galicia VII Brigade regarding the manufacture, maintenance and repair of vehicles and components for them, as well as training in their use.
The Portuguese RRF (Força de Reação Rápida) deployed in the Central African Republic under the command of the UN mission MINUSCA is carrying out its first mission using the VAMTAC ST5.
The Third Mechanized Landing Battalion (BDMZ-III) of the Marine Brigade "Tercio de Armada" (TEAR) has just incorporated four off-road Urovesa VAMTAC ST5 vehicles in Spike configuration, which carry as standard the mast and shaft for the launchers of this anti-tank missile.
This configuration of the VAMTAC ST5 ensures the same off-road mobility and stability because it has permanent traction with 100% differential locks and independent 4-wheel suspension.
