German special operations forces are due to receive an additional order of Image Intensification (I2) Ground Panoramic Night Vision Goggles (GPNVGs), Shephard has been informed.

Company officials at L3 Harris Technologies, the manufacturer of the GPNVG, confirmed that German distributor IEA Mil-Optics would be supplying ‘hundreds’ of units to the German Armed Forces over an undisclosed timeframe.

Defence sources confirmed to Shephard that deliveries will be made to the German Army’s Special Operations Command or Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK) as well as the navy’s Kampfshcwimmer (KSM) units. The KSK measures approximately 1,300 personnel based at the Graf Zeppelin Barracks in Calw.
