Arquus Defense is rooted in a century of innovation and development at the service of the armed forces. This industrial tradition, which began with Panhard and Levassor, has marked the history of national defense through mythical figures such as Marius Berliet (the trucks of the Sacred Way) and Louis Renault, co-inventor of the FT 17. It has produced equally legendary armored vehicles such as the AML, EBR, VBL and VLBRA, to provide support, liaison and reconnaissance, and the VAB personnel carrier. Today it is reflected in the armored vehicles in the Scorpion program and the development of the vehicles of the future. The name Arquus comes from two Latin roots: arma and equus. Equus is the horse that endows the soldier with mobility on the battlefield. Arma are the weapons, the vehicles’ armament.
