"Mastering his own strength, he respects his opponent and is careful to spare civilians. He obeys orders while respecting laws, customs of war and international conventions. He is aware of global societies and respects their differences."
- Code of the French Soldier

The VAB (Vehicule de l'Avant Blinde) front-line armored vehicle is an Infantry Corps tactical armored vehicle produced by the Euro Mobilite Division of Giat Industries with headquarters at Versailles in France. A joint venture company, Satory Military Vehicles was set up by Giat and Renault Trucks to be responsible for the VAB series and a number of other vehicles including the AMX-10RC and the French Army's new VBCI wheeled infantry fighting vehicle. In September 2003, it was decided to wind up this company and reorganize relations between the two companies. It was determined that Giat would be the prime contractor and have responsibility for marketing of the VBCI, the AMX 10P and AMX 10RC. Meanwhile, Renault Trucks Defense is the prime contractor and has responsibility for marketing of the VAB.

Since 1976, more than 5,000 VABs have been produced in thirty different versions. 376 VABs were used in Operation Desert Storm and VAB has been deployed in United Nations peacekeeping missions in Bosnia, Cambodia, Croatia, Lebanon, Rwanda and Somalia.

The VAB has been selected for the armed forces of 15 countries, Brunei, Central African Republic, Cyprus, France, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritius, Morocco, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The French Army has a fleet of almost 4,000 VAB vehicles.
