Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Iveco DV jointly develop vehicle family.

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and the Italian vehicle manufacturer IVECO have signed a cooperation agreement on the development of a new military vehicle family in the weight class of 18 to 25 tons in Paris. For this class, there is a specific armed forces demand in Germany as well as in Italy. The two companies intend to serve this demand jointly in the future with highly protected two-axle and three-axle vehicles. In a first step, the German market will be addressed in the Federal Armed Forces class 4 for Armoured Command-Control and Opertions Vehicles (GFF4) with the version 6x6 (i.e. three axles, six driven wheels). In Italy, the VTM-x-vehicle is simultaneously introduced in a 4x4 version. A prototype of the three-axle version is currently tested by the Federal Armed Forces. A two-axle variant will be derived from this model and will this year already be available as prototype for trial purposes. Depending on the customer requirements, the serial production delivery of the first vehicles may already start from 2009 on. The vehicle family is particularly characterized by its high level of protection against all common threats in the ongoing international NATO and EU operations like in Afghanistan, by an extraordinarily high mobility, a high vehicle payload as well as by a simple and reliable suppliability which is ensured due to the use of standardized

Krauss-Maffei KMW and General Dynamics GDELS to produce advanced artillery systems, the DONAR.

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Munich, and General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS), Vienna, are teaming to develop and market a new generation, air deployable, autonomous and remotely operated 155mm artillery system. The system addresses the growing need for precise indirect fire capabilities that can augment or even replace close-air-support operations previously conducted by costly fixed- or rotary-wing aircraft.The KMW / GD ELS system, called the DONAR, provides capabilities that will change conventional artillery doctrine. DONAR not only reduces crew and logistics requirements, but also provides for autonomous operations. The system is targeted to replace legacy systems (e.g., M109, AS90, K9, etc.) in service with modern armies. A first prototype has already undergone rigorous mobility and fire trials at the test facility of the German procurement agency BWB (Bundesamt für Wehrtechnik und Beschaffung), and will be displayed during this year’s defence exhibition EUROSATORY in Paris, France.
