Saab has received an order from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) for deliveries of Mobile Camouflage Systems (MCS) to equip the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) new LEOPARD 2 A7V. Deliveries of the MCS in woodland configuration will take place during the period 2018-2022.
Barracuda MCS is a flexible solution providing multispectral protection for vehicles when moving or when in a static position. “We are fully certified by the customer as a supplier of advanced mobile camouflage solutions, which we are extremely proud of,” Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab Dynamics, says. “With this order the customer will equip their tanks with a reliable, multispectral and combat-proven camouflage system. This year we celebrate 60 years of developing static and mobile camouflage systems, and this order is a proof of that experience.”
Barracuda’s advanced camouflage technology products have already been exported to more than 60 countries worldwide. The camouflage solutions offer multispectral protection. Everything from ultra-violet, visual, near infrared, short wave infrared to thermal sensors and radar. Built-in thermal radiation protection reduces the operating temperature inside vehicles and increases crew comfort, firing accuracy, and fuel efficiency.
