LONDON, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

International Armoured Vehicles , the largest show dedicated solely to the
armoured vehicles community, will be returning to Farnborough FIVE from 5-8
February 2013, with a new Dynamic Vehicle Experience at the Long Valley Test

Long Valley Test Track features different terrains and obstacles for an
enhanced live experience. Open for test track exhibitors and their guests,
the dynamic vehicle experience is designed for vehicle manufacturers to
showcase their products to their clients in an "immersion" setting, with each
track running a duration of anywhere from 15-30 minutes at a time.

With this new installation, the 2013 International Armoured Vehicles show
marks a clear evolution in Defence IQ's flagship armoured vehicle event. The
event is traditionally comprised of a large scale conference of 600+
attendees, combined with a focussed exhibition hall, which annually welcomes
2,100+ visitors from 47 countries.

Running for its 12th time in 2013, International Armoured Vehicles once again
offers a high-level and technical programme during the conference, with topics
focussing on Survivability, Innovative Armour, Simulation, Maintenance and
Industry Requirements. Last year's G6 Industry Panel sees a return for 2013,
with new panellists General Dynamics, Iveco, Lockheed Martin, Nexter, Renault
and Textron , as well as the addition of the International Industry Leaders
Panel (IILP) . Much like the G6 Panel, the IILP will feature leaders in the
international space, discussing up-and-coming markets of interest to the land
defence industry, such as Turkey ,  Brazil ,  Russia and the Middle East .

The 2013 show introduces the Industry Focus Day, which will provide a platform
for technical experts from Tier 1 companies to present their current projects,
challenges and future capability requirements to members of the military and
Tier 2 and 3 groups. Programmes to be discussed include the Boxer MRAV, BVP2
IFV, CV9040 IFV, M113 APC, Scout SV , and the Warthog TPMV .

Amongst the prestigious speaker faculty are Lieutenant General David Halverson
, Deputy Commander TRADOC, Major General Andrew Sharpe OBE, DG DCDC UK
Ministry of Defence and Fleet Admiral Marco Antonio Guimaraes, General
Commandant of the Brazilian Marine Corps. 

Quoted in February 2012 in his previous role, Lieutenant General Christopher
Michael Deverell, Director Land Materiel, DE&S UK MoD commented, "There are
lots of conferences around, but there's not another one on this sort of scale
that is specifically focussed on armoured vehicles, so it fills a very useful

Additional military speakers will represent international organisations such
