Saab has received an order from the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann to develop new vehicle electronics for the Leopard 2 tank for an approximate $15 million.
The order encompasses design and development of vehicle electronics, delivery of vehicle electronics units and cables, as well as training and documentation. The order also enables the tank to be integrated with the Swedish Battalion Combat Management System, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
Deliveries will be made during the period 2018–2022.
Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH is a primary supplier of the Leopard 2 tank to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration and the Swedish Army, where the tank is designated as Stridsvagn 122.
