Press Release, Munich / Tiel, 16 September 2021: Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), the German systems supplier for battle tanks and combat systems, and Defenture, the Dutch manufacturer of special-purpose vehicles, intend to enter into close strategic cooperation. A letter of intent (LoI) has already been signed by both companies.

The background is the German Ministry of Defence’s plan to procure new airborne platforms to replace the vehicles of the airborne troops, some of which are more than 20 years old. The basis of the envisaged vehicle family is Defenture’s VECTOR, which has already been introduced in the Netherlands and has proven itself in operations. For the airborne platform project, this vehicle basis will be adapted to the new requirements.
