The Gabonese armed forces consolidate their partnership with Nexter Systems

Versailles, 7 November 2014 – The Gabonese Republic has chosen Nexter Systems to equip its four RaidCo RPB20 express-cruiser patrol boats with the 15A naval mounts, and its future ocean-going patrol boat, ordered on 29 October 2014 from the Piriou dockyard, with the 20mm NARWHAL® remote-controlled naval gun. These weapon systems, based on the 20 M 621 cannon, will enable the Gabonese navy to effectively combat piracy and will contribute to the protection of Gabonese national waters.

In another show of faith in the products and services on offer from the Nexter group, on 29 October, Gabon also ordered 12 ARAVIS® highly armoured vehicles to equip its battalion committed in the Central African Republic as part of the UN’s MINUSCA mission.

These vehicles will be fitted with the ARX20 turret, the PG-Guard anti-RPG protection system and NERVA® LG mini scout robots.
