BELGIUM has also ordered more than 80 VBMR GRIFFON for its army, as part of a strategic Franco-Belgian partnership called "CaMo" (for motorized capability).

This vehicle is part of the French SCORPION program.  Other vehicles are planned to support the VBMR GRIFFON, such as the light multi-role armoured vehicle (VBMR-L) SERVAL.
The SERVAL starts its first runs
and is undergoing extensive testing.

Also planned is the JAGUAR, a wheeled tank specialized in reconnaissance and combat. It is equipped with a 40-mm gun and an anti-tank missile launcher.
