Armoured Vehicles in Asia: Key Programmes and Requirements Report

Ahead of this year’s Armoured Vehicles Asia Conference, Defence IQ compiled a comprehensive report highlighting active ongoing programmes and key requirements in the Armoured Vehicle space in the region, as militaries invest in solutions and adapt to the modern battlefield against a wide array of threats and challenges. Rapid growth of the region’s market can be attributed to increasing indigenous R&D activities in order to develop advanced designs of hybrid armoured vehicles for missions such as enhanced border, maritime patrolling and ISR. The report offers insights into the activity of nations that will be present at the Armoured Vehicles Asia conference, such as:

  • Bangladesh – procurement of 680 new Light Armoured Vehicles for a total value of US$1 billion 
  • India – update on the Future Infantry Combat Vehicle competition that is valued at US$15 billion
  • Indonesia – update on recent deliveries and current capabilities of the Army
  • Malaysia – delivery of the Armoured Engineer Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle version of the AV-8 Wheeled Armoured Vehicle
