Czech Republic to renogiate deal for APC

According to this article in ceskenoviny.cz the Czech government will renegotiate the terms of the APC contract that they canceled recently. See this related post. They are retesting the vehicles made by Steyr in Austria, and then will announce a decision. It also sounds like they are reducing the quantity. The Czech-Slovak split probably left both new countries with a motley collection of Soviet and Czech made equipment. I know recently the Czech government sent some Mi-24 and Mi-17 helicopters to Afghanistan for that country’s use.

General Dynamics Austrian subsidiary, Steyr Daimler Puch, given second chance on Czech contract.

The new Czech government had cancelled a contract with Austrian based Steyr Daimler Puch for armored vehicles due to the General Dynamics subsidiary’s problems with schedule and performance. The government has now decided to allow more negotiations on this contract. See CNNMoney.com for more information here.
