Netherlands To Procure Leguan Bridge Layer Systems On Leopard 2 Tank

The German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment (BAAINBw) on behalf of Dutch Procurement Office (DMO) signed an agreement with Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) Tuesday to procure five Leguan bridge layer systems on Leopard 2 main battle tank chassis.

The procurement plan also includes training simulators, accessory equipment and an option for additional bridge layer systems, the US department of defense announced Tuesday.

The vehicles will be transferred to the Dutch army in 2019 and 2020. This version of the Leguan is capable of laying and transporting two 14 metre long bridges or one 26 metre long bridge, even under combat conditions.

The Dutch army is the sixth user of the Leguan on Leopard 2 chassis. In total, armies from 17 countries operate the Leguan bridge layer system on various mobility platforms.
