PARIS — BAE Systems and the Goriziane Group have firmed up a memorandum of agreement to jointly provide support and services for Italian military users of the Bv206 and Bv206S all-terrain vehicles.

The agreement makes Goriziane the sole partner authorized to conduct support and services on the Italian fleet, BAE officials said at the Eurosatory show here Thursday.

The Truppe Alpini have been users of the Bv206 for years and deployed with the protected 206S version during the Italian mission in Afghanistan. Some 300 of the Swedish-built vehicles are in military service in Italy.

The two companies have previously collaborated in providing service, support and overhaul for the Italian fleet of BAE AAV7 amphibious vehicles.

Goriziane was founded in 1945 as a family-run workshop for the overhaul of motor vehicles and work-yard machines and has built up a position as an established supplier to the Italian Ministry of Defense.
