Athens. 26 November 2020. The decision to replace two historic vehicles of the Greek Armed Forces, the Stagier trucks and the jeeps of the Mercedes-Benz GD, through a tender whose first part is estimated to have a budget of 550 million euros mobilizes all major automakers active in defence but also a number of companies specializing in the equipment of such vehicles.
DEFEA (Defence Exhibition Athens) that will take place from 11 to 13 May 2021 at Metropolitan Expo in Athens, Greece offers a unique opportunity for all defence automakers to present their vehicles to Greek Armed Forces.
According to information, some unofficial presentations have already been made in Athens by foreign groups, while the competent services of the Ministry of National Defense are working feverishly on the specifications of the vehicles and the other parameters of the tender. The tender will certainly be a bidding, but it has not yet been clarified the number of vehicles and the exact types of vehicles that will be requested by the Armed Forces.
