Netherlands orders Leguan bridge layers
The Dutch Army has ordered Leguan bridge layer systems from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) via the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment (BAAINBw).
Five Leguan bridge layer systems on Leopard 2 chassis will be supplied under the agreement, along with training simulators, accessory equipment and an option for additional bridge layer systems.
This version of the Leguan is capable of laying and transporting two 14m long bridges or one 26m long bridge, even under combat conditions.
The vehicles will be transferred to the Dutch Army in 2019 and 2020.
