German Army orders Mungo vehicles
Germany’s military procurement organisation has commissioned Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) to supply nine Mungo N/C Recce vehicles for the German Army.
The N/C Recce variant of the Mungo vehicle is designed to detect and identify nuclear and chemical threats using a mass spectrometer, weather sensors and a radiation detection device among other equipment.
The three-person crew remains inside the secure vehicle throughout the entire detection and analysis process. The ground can also be marked from inside the vehicle in the event of contamination.
The Mungo N/C Recce can be transported in a CH-53 helicopter due to its light weight and external dimensions.
The contract also includes spare parts, and crew and maintenance training.
The vehicles will be delivered by the end of 2022.
