German Fenneks to be reconfigured

10th July 2017 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


KMW will retrofit 30 Fennek reconnaissance vehicles to the Joint Fire Support Team configuration for the German Army, the company announced on 4 July.

The contract, worth $99 million, was placed by the Dutch Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) on behalf of German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment. The DMO is responsible for the bilateral Fennek programme.

The Fennek scout variants will be retrofitted to the Fennek JFST 1A3+ variant between 2018 and 2022 and then transferred back to the German armed forces.

The vehicles will be configured as Forward Artillery Observer and Forward Air Controller variants, with obsolete component assemblies and software replaced.
