SMi reports: Spanish MoD’s Colonel Jose Maria Gonzalez Casado to provide updates at the Future Armoured Vehicles Central and Eastern Europe conference, now a virtual conference.

With less than 10 weeks until the 6th annual Future Armoured Vehicles Central and Eastern Europe Conference, taking place on the 12th and 13th October, it has now become a virtual event only.

The two-day conference will welcome an exceptional gathering of international senior military officers from the Central and Eastern European region. In recent CC news, 'The Spanish version of the Ascod armoured fighting vehicles, called Pizarro, were deployed to Latvia.’ *(Source: Defence Blog). The Pizarro, designed by General Dynamics European Land Systems, was transferred to Bilbao as part of NATO’s multinational Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) operation to increase defence and deterrence capabilities in the alliance's contested Eastern flank.

Building on the that, SMi Group are delighted to welcome General Dynamics European Land Systems as Sponsor and Exhibitor for this year’s Future Armoured Vehicles CEE meeting, showcasing their very latest armoured vehicles updates. With heavy support from the host nation – Czech Republic, the conference will also feature several high-level, regionally focussed presentations, from senior military and government personnel from countries such as; Austria, Estonia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and more.
