Nexter delivers the latest EBG-VAL to the School of Military Engineering in Angers


EBG-VAL Copyright Nexter - Aspheri  - CopieVersailles, 5 February 2014 – The Nexter Group delivers the 42nd Upgraded Engineering corps armored vehicle (EBG-VAL) to the School of Military Engineering in Angers, thus concluding the program to upgrade the EBG-F1 (initial version) and Pyrotechnic anti-tank mine clearing systems (SDPMAC), driven by the French Procurement Agency (DGA).


Derived from an AMX-30B2 chassis, the EBG-F1 was put into service for the first time in 1987. It has since been destined to fulfill support missions in combat, opening and closing routes, clearing obstructions or landscaping.
Faced with a wider range of threats and an ever-changing environment, in 2006 the DGA entrusted Nexter Systems with the task of upgrading 42 EBG-F1s, which became EBG-VALs, and 12 SDPMACs.


The aim of the program was to enhance protection, develop existing functions, provide new functions and improve ergonomics. In total, 54 engineer vehicles were delivered between September 2011 and January 2014.
