The Light Sherpa Demonstrates High Mobility


At the 2010 Eurosatory Renault Trucks Defense introduced the refined ‘Sherpa Light‘ family of tactical vehicles, featuring the 13.3 ton, 4×4 transport vehicle designed specifically to support special missions. Carrying five soldiers and up to 2.6 tons of cargo, the new Sherpa provides high mobility light forces, traversing all types of terrain with sufficient payload capacity to support paratroops, marines and light infantry on extended missions. The vehicle is transportable by C-130 and A400M transport aircrafts. The platform is based on the Sherpa 2 introduced two years ago at Eurosatory 2008.
