12:00 AM, August 13, 2012
The Danish Ministry of Defense has issued a tender to eight European armored vehicles builders for the acquisition of 360 armored personnel carriers. The competition will see suppliers from both the track and wheels platforms battling to win the Danish tender. With FFG Flensburger, BAE Systems Hagglunds, Rheinmentall Landsysteme and the Santa Barbara arm of GDELS representing the tracks sector; wheeled vehicle suppliers ARTEC, the Mowag arm of GDELS, Nexter and Patria have also been asked to submit bids. The Danish MoD selected the eight companies after a pre-qualification effort by the government. At present, Denmark has a requirement for between 206 and 450 vehicles, although around 360 machines are expected to be the most likely procurement number, depending on how many of the M113s the military opts to replace. The winning vehicle could be under contract before the end of 2014.
