Spain Back Menu
Spain chose Spike-LR as the next-generation anti-armour missile to equip its army and marines.

The Spike missile family is designed around 2 key principles: low life cycle cost, and simple but reliable operation. Low life cycle cost comes from keeping prices down for all components by using "good enough" solutions that offer high quality without gold plating. The high-end option of integrated training as part of the system is included, however, because it improves the system's cost profile over its entire lifetime. While Spike is less capable in some ways than high-end missiles like the Javelin, it's also far more affordable, and hence useful as a more readily available fire-support option. The 2006 Lebanon war saw guided anti-armor missiles employed as a substitute for artillery, a role in which even very old designs like the AT-3 proved highly useful.
In Spain, 2007 was the Year of the Spike. January 2007, Spain chose Spike-LR as the next-generation anti-armour missile to equip its army and marines, as the RAFAEL/ General Dynamics partnership beat MBDA's Milan-ER and the Raytheon/Lockheed Javelin. In December 2007, Spain book ended its earlier commitment with a contract for Spike-LR's larger cousin to equip its helicopter force.

Contract for the delivery of Steyr Pandur II wheeled armoured vehicle
is killed by the Czech government.

In January 2006, the Czech Republic selected General Dynamics' European Land Combat Systems subsidiary Steyr-Daimler-Puch Spezialfahrzeug GmbH of Austria to supply its army with 199 new eight-wheeled Pandur II armourd personnel carrier (APCs) between 2007-2012. The vehicles would replace Soviet-era OT-64 SKOT APCs, and would be produced in Austria and the Czech Republic. The contract includes an option for 35 additional vehicles for a total of 234, and has a potential value of Koruna 23.6 billion ($1-1.4 billion). Steyr's Pandur II was a finalist, and eventually won the competition. But questions arose, the deal became a political football, and delivery issues jeopardized deal. Steyr recently issued a pair of releases that aim to put the Czech government in a tight spot, while detailing the project's industrial arrangements… but it wasn't enough. In the end, 3 issues killed the contract.

Bulgaria Orders M1117 ASVs wheeled armourd vehicle for Afghanistan.

Add one more European nation to the bandwagon of emergency mine-resistant vehicle purchases. On Dec 7/07, Sofia News Agency Reported that Bulgaria has just signed a deal with Textron Land Systems for armored vehicles. The memorandum is to be in force until 2011, and each year a concrete agreement will be signed for a given number of armored vehicles. The first 7 vehicles, worth 14 million leva ($10.5 million), are meant for the Bulgarian contingent in Afghanistan and are to be delivered by the end of the 2007. The vehicles are almost certainly the firm's mine-resistant M1117 Guardian ASVs, an armored car design that combines good mobility and protection with strong anti-personnel firepower from the combined .50 caliber machine gun and 40mm grenade machine gun in its turret. The ASV is popular with US military police, but was removed from the MRAP competitions by the US Marines after testing.

The Indian Army is seeking a new generation main battle tank (MBT) even as it prepares to receive the locally designed Arjun MBT that has been over three decades in the making. "What we have today [Arjun] is mid-level technology. What we need is a tank of international quality," India's army chief General Deepak Kapoor said in New Delhi at an international seminar on armoured fighting vehicles.
"I have no doubt that the Defence Research and Development Organisation [DRDO] will be able to develop indigenous capabilities for coming up with a better answer and more versatile armoured fighting vehicle [than Arjun] in the future," he added. Arjun was designed by the DRDO.

FN303 Less Lethal Systems FN Herstal for the Border protection and Border Patrol in United States.

FN Herstal’s subsidiary in Washington, United States, FNH USA, won a major contract from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol for purchase of the FN303 Less Lethal System.This was a single source contract awarded to FNH USA, because the FN303 is the only less lethal system with the range requirements specified by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The FN303 is a less lethal device that equips the agent with an added option to address a confrontation and potentially diffuse it at a lower level of lethality than through the use of his or her firearm. Comprehensive and exhaustive testing proved its worth: the FN303 is the only less lethal system with the range requirements specified by US Customs and Border Protection. The Border Patrol has now over 1,000 FN303s for use in training and potential deployment.
