German Army Takes Delivery of 1st FENNEK Pioneer Vehicle

(October 6, 2008) -- Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Europe's leading system supplier of protected vehicles on tracks and wheels, has delivered the first of a total of 24 FENNEK pioneer vehicles to the German Army's pioneer troops. The handover took place at the end of September during the "2008 Pioneers" training exercise and the subsequent "Pioneers' Day" at the Munchnsmunster barracks near Ingolstadt in Bavaria, Germany. The vehicles from the FENNEK family will provide a valuable service to the German Army\'s pioneer troops in their reconnaissance and preparatory work in the future. They can move almost silently through any terrain, offer a wide range of functions, wide-ranging protection, excellent stability and a high level of autonomy, and are able to defend themselves.
