18 vehicles, two helicopters bought by AFM since 2013

Since 2013, the Armed Forces of Malta bought a total of 18 vehicles.

Home Affairs Minister Carmelo Abela, said this in Parliament this evening while replying to a series of questions tabled by Government MP Anthony Agius Decelis related to the Armed Forces of Malta and the latest acquisitions.

The minister explained that the substantial investment shows the Government’s commitment to improve the efficiency of the army.

Most of these vehicles, which include army Landrovers, were brought from the United Kingdom and Italy. He said this shows the good relationship the countries have with Malta. The latest acquisition was one of the largest when compared to the previous years.

Some of the vehicles which were bought from the UK were second hand.
