The future CLRV will replace both the Protected Response Vehicle (PRV) fleet as well as the aging High-Mobility-Multipurpose-Wheeled-Vehicle (HMMWV) fleet of the Luxembourg Army. The fleet upgrade enhance the operational capabilities of the Luxembourg Armed Forces.
“With the support of the NSPA, the Luxembourg Defence will acquire new CLRVs, meeting the latest military standards. Three points were essential in this project. First and foremost, the security and protection of our troops during a mission. Secondly, to modernize our equipment and thus increase operational capabilities and thirdly, to ensure interoperability within the Army and with our close allies,” said François Bausch, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence of Luxembourg.
The multi-role and multi-purpose CLRV will feature high ballistic and mine protection. It will be equipped with a specific remote weapon station and French SCORPION programme based mission equipment to ensure interoperability with international partners. Mission equipment commonality with Belgium and France will allow common obsolescence management and logistic synergies, thus reducing CLRV fleet support costs.
