A strategic procurement plan, agreed in 2006 by the Supreme National Defence Council, allotted each of Romania's armed services two major programmes:Air Force acquisition of 48 multirole combat aircraft to replace the MiG-21 Lancer fleet from around 2010, along with new long-range, short-range and very-short-range air-defence systems; Land Forces acquisition of a new fleet of survivable wheeled armored personnel carriers, new armored and unarmored patrol vehicles, and a new fleet of trucks, from light utility vehicles to heavy equipment transporters. In April 2011, the Romanian government decided to push ahead with a RON2 million (USD700,000) research and development (R&D) program for a new APC, despite the straitened financial climate caused by budget cuts. The initiative will be led by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Ministry of Economy, Commerce and Business Environment.
