France expected to supply 26 more Bastion personnel carriers to Armenian army

France has supplied Armenia with 24 Bastion armored personnel carriers, and another 26 to be shipped to Armenia are under production, a report published on the French Senate reveals, according to Sputnik Armenia.

The document says that Yerevan recently placed an order for three GM200 3D air surveillance radars developed by Thales, and negotiations are also underway on the supply of MISTRAL 3 anti-aircraft missile systems to the country.

Earlier, photographs of French armored vehicles heading through Georgian territory to Armenia surfaced on social networks and Telegram channels.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense has yet to comment on reports of the supply of French armored vehicles.

Back in October 2023, the Ministers of Defense of Armenia and France signed agreements on the supply of weapons to Armenia.
