HENSOLDT to Supply Sight Systems Worth € 75 Million for Dutch Armored Reconnaissance Vehicles

Date: Issue 106 - May 2021

Oberkochen-based sensor solutions provider HENSOLDT has received an order from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) worth nearly 75 million euros to equip the Royal Netherlands Army's "Fennek" armoured reconnaissance vehicles with visual systems. The scope of the order includes 188 BAA II NL observation and reconnaissance systems, as well as several spare parts.

The BAA II NL is the further developed model of the BAA II JFST, which is already used by the Joint Fire Support Team (JFST) of the German Armed Forces. The external dimensions have remained the same, and the menu navigation has also been left unchanged to keep the training effort for the crew as low as possible.
