No Renault Sherpas for MX Navy…so far

Despite initial rumors that the Mexican Navy had bought an unspecified number of Renault Sherpa Light Scout Vehicles, MXSECURITY has confirmed that not a single Sherpa has been acquired over this year.

The Mexican Navy announced it didn’t buy any Sherpa and “has no plans [so far…] to buy such vehicles in the near term”.

Then, what about the Sherpa spotted in Veracruz some weeks ago?

Well, that Sherpa was allegedly undergoing operational tests in a real urban-warfare environment.

The Sherpa Light Scout Vehicle is specially suited for military urban operations, making it a great choice for Mexico’s current internal security crisis.

Let us wait for the Navy’s final call.
