The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (NDMA) has awarded a contract to Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) for six Leguan bridge layer systems to be used on Leopard 2 chassis.
In addition to the vehicle systems, training simulators and a peripheral package are also part of the procurement project, the company said in a statement Thursday.
The Leguan bridge-laying tank can configure one 26 meter or two 14 meter bridges with a load rating of class MLC 80. (exceptional load rating class up to MLC 110). The fully automatic laying system enables bridges to be constructed in approximately five minutes. The tactical advantage of the system is to be found in its horizontal laying technique which preserves the low silhouette on missions. The operation is automated and performed by the driver via a system menu, but can also be performed independently by the commander, according to the company.
Delivery will start in summer 2022.
