Another chance for Austrian Steyr-Daimler-Puch Spezialfahrzeug GmbH Company was opened this month to deliver 107 pieces of wheeled armoured vehicles for the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic. The total number of vehicles would include six modifications.

Following recommendation by the Czech Ministry of Defence, the Czech government is ready to conclude a new contract with Steyr, represented in the Czech Republic by Defendia Ltd. Company. The crucial prerequisite is result of a pre-contract testing of offered vehicles, which will be performed by an independent accredited testing station.

The last contract with the Steyr Company amounting to 199 vehicles was terminated by the Czech government on 10 December 2007, because the contractor was unable to meet agreed stipulations.
