Armoured Vehicles Africa will offer an unrivalled opportunity to engage with the most important issues for the procurement, sustainment, training and operational use of armoured vehicles across Africa

This conference will bring together the African armoured vehicle community for benchmarking, debate and collaboration around the themes of procurement of new platforms, maintenance and upgrade of existing vehicles, and I thought you might be interested in gaining exposure at this exclusive meeting.

We’re delighted to be hosting the forum for the first time in Botswana, where the armoured community of the continent will gather to discuss feedback from operational experience, key on-going challenges and plans for future development and acquisition.

Major General G Morake, Commander, Ground Forces Command, Botswana Defence Forces will be delivering the keynote address welcoming the community to Gaborone and reflecting on the future of armour for the BDF’s ground forces. His strategic view will be followed by Brigadier General Simon Barwabatsile, Commander 3 Brigade Group, BDF, who will continue the discussion from the Botswanan perspective by elaborating on their recent experiences and technical concerns.

Other participating African nations include Kenya, Benin, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, Benin and Gabon, with further involvement from the AU, US Army, IGAD, COMESA and SADSEM.
