Armoured Vehicles Africa 2015 Conference

What is the future of Armoured Vehicles across Africa?

Discover the answer by joining African Army Commanders and Operational leaders at the annual Armoured Vehicles Africa Forum.

It is widely acknowledged that armies across Africa need to possess and operate large numbers of armoured vehicles of different sizes and complexities to maintain their effectiveness in both peace and war time. However, the costs incurred in purchasing and subsequently maintaining the vehicles in a high state of operational combat readiness at the required levels of availability are extremely high. With this in mind the event will debate the critically important operational, procurement and technological solutions to these challenges.

Armoured Vehicles Africa 2015 is the African armoured vehicle community’s premier forum for benchmarking, debate and collaboration around the themes of procurement of new platforms, maintenance and upgrade of existing vehicles, the significance of logistics, operational experience, and technological solutions. The meeting brings together over 100 Army Commanders, Heads of Land Procurement, Armour Commanders and industry executives from across Africa and the rest of the globe to discuss the challenges and success shaping armoured vehicles for now and the future. Held with the support and direction of Senior Leaders from across the Africa military community, it provides a rare platform to share lessons learned and best practice in current mechanised requirements, capabilities and programmes. With a critical emphasis on international engagement the event provides on a very real opportunity to strengthen messages of cooperation with counterparts from across the African continent.
