Over the past few years, security of nations is an increasingly complex situation.
There are four main security threats facing countries at the moment: (1) the nonconventional threat, whether coming from hostile actors, (2) the conventional threat of war, high intensity conflicts are coming back on the international scene and (3) the cyber threat.
To help Land Forces to accomplish their missions, Thales provides solutions to Armies worldwide based on digital transformation and collaborative combat covering the whole operational spectrum: from Headquarters (HQ) to theatre area (platforms & soldier).
Thales furnishes vehicle solutions – from effectors-sensors to combat systems -, whatever the platform or type of mission to be fulfilled, from stand-platform to multiplatform. Our products/solutions range from Recce, infantry carrier, and command post vehicles to combat support and recovery transport.
Because military operations are now network-centric, land forces need superior information and communications capabilities to respond to new threats and to work efficiently and seamlessly with joint and allied forces. Thales delivers interoperable systems that are purpose-designed to give land forces operational superiority in a fully digital world. We offer vehicle system integrator solutions for all types of platform and mission, from stand-alone platform to multiplatform. We provide a common vehicle electronic architecture adapted to all variants that gives operational supremacy to end-users as well as industrial and programmatic benefits.
Thales’ vehicle solutions are polyvalent, and we manufacture different families of transport equipment to support a broad variety of operations. Thales has delivered over 25,000 platform systems of 150 different types through partnerships as well as our own industrial vehicle integration facilities around the world.
As a platform vehicle supplier, we manufacture the Bushmaster, a highly protected and mobile family of patrol vehicles. We also work in close cooperation with customers, helping them with through-life support, fleet expansion, aiding with local added value and making optimum use of all their legacy and/or 3rd party equipment.
In addition to offering vehicle solutions, we offer accessory products and services for vehicles already in service. These include:
On-board products including optronics, C2, identification, Electronic Warfare, mortars, radars and other sensors.
Mission packages, such as observation, protection, assault and C4I.
Core vehicle electronic architecture to offer voice, data, video distribution and energy both within vehicles and externally.

Thales C4ISR systems [Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance delivered an integrated C4ISR capabilities to Forces.
The solutions give information advantage to headquarters and units on the battlefield with smart command and collaborative combat features powered by AI [Artificial Intelligence] and big data innovations.
Based on a standardized and open architecture hosting tactical communications and operational information systems, Thales leverages on its ability to deliver integrated and interoperable solutions on multi- platforms.
All our vehicles are designed to rapidly deploy battle-ready troops in all field conditions.
Forces across the world demand highly mobile vehicles that provide high levels of troop protection, all terrain agility and exceptional capacity – we deliver.
Multi-Role Protected Vehicle
Bushmaster is combat proven and has been successfully deployed by three armies on operations in a number of regions including the Middle East, Africa and the Pacific. On-going design enhancement, a wide range of user selectable mission equipment and mature through life support have ensured that Bushmaster continues to meet evolving customer requirements.
Bushmaster is an 11-tonne, 4x4 protected vehicle with a 4-tonne payload, designed to perform a diverse range of mission profiles. Variants include troop carrier, command, patrol, support, weapons deployment and ambulance.
Bushmaster is designed and built to protect up to 10 occupants, combining high levels of blast and ballistic protection with excellent off-road mobility.
In service with six countries on four continents, Bushmaster has proven performance in protecting and saving lives during operations.
