The center of attention will be the muli-role PMMC G5 vehicle alongside the multi-functional platform WiSENT 2. Both systems are designed to offer maximum crew protection with very high equipment variability. FFG has already sold the Leopard 2 chassis based WiSENT 2 to several Leopard 2 using countries (Canada, Qatar, UAE and Norway), which between them have taken the main part of the supply and service chain available.

Customers are able to choose between engineer and/or recovery versions that can easily be changed on the vehicle within a few hours, thanks to a flexible design concept. So during a very short period of time, the engineer version, featuring a state-of-the-art hinged arm excavator and high performance dozer blade for up to 300 cubic meters of earth moving work, can be transformed into a completely armoured recovery vehicle, capable of lifting up to 32t with its crane or pulling up to 40t under protection using a winch.

The crew’s safety and special mission adaptability are also essential cornerstones of the multi-role PMMC G5. FFG here provides different mission modules or variants of this system, always offering the perfect configurations for whatever task has been. The extensive use of MOTS and COTS products and the robust design of the vehicle, combined with a simple maintenance and service concept make PMMC G5 a very cost-effective solution with extremely low life-cycle costs. In the matter of IED and mine protection, G5 sets new standards in its weight class, while its ballistic armour can be increased without problems by the use of optional add-on armoury.

At IDEX 2017, there are lots of innovations, sophisticated solutions and real state-of-the-art engineering awaiting expectant visitors at FFG’s Stand, 08-C08.
