Scania has announced that it has secured an order for 300 trucks from the French military. The trucks will be built at its Angers plant in France.

“This is an important order,” commented Marc Haezenberghe, President of Scania France.
“Scania already has a firm presence in the French military sector, for instance with our delivery of heavy tractors to the army in recent years.

“The order marks the first time the French army buys vehicles in the heavy segment, 16 tons and above, totally based on Scania´s ordinary modularised product range. The 300 chassis from Scania will be equipped with stainless steel tanks from the French Lafon Group.”

The order means that Scania’s French production company in Angers – which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary – is expanding its range to include more technically complex products. The 300 trucks will feature drive to all wheels, and their six-cylinder engines have a power output of 340 horsepower.
