Bundeswehr Orders Additional LEGUAN Bridgelayers

€280 Million Order for KMW – 24 Vehicles for Delivery 2023-2028

Germany’s defence procurement agency, the BAAINBW, has commissioned Krauss-Maffei Wegmann to supply additional LEGUAN bridge laying systems to the German Army.

The contract covers 24 LEGUAN on the LEOPARD chassis, training simulators, ancillary equipment and transport systems. Delivery is expected between 2023-2028 and the order value amounts to approx. €280 million.

The LEGUAN can launch a single 26m MLC80-class bridge (about 70t capacity) or two 14m bridges, in both cases under combat conditions. The new contract will enhance the Bundeswehr’s fording and gap-crossing capabilities, even for heavy equipment. Germany has warranted this capability to NATO as part of its participation in the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF). The Bundeswehr is thus making a major contribution to the future mobility of European NATO forces.

In total, armies from 19 different countries deploy the LEGUAN bridge-laying system on a range of mobility platforms. On the LEOPARD 2 chassis, the system has nine users.
