The Danish Ministry of Defense awarded a CHF 46 million ($52.1 million) contract to General Dynamics European Land Systems-Mowag (GDELS-Mowag) to deliver 56 PATROL vehicles and a first prototype of the RECONNAISSANCE Open variant.
This second order is part of the Armored Patrol Vehicle (APV) framework agreement, which GDELS-Mowag and DALO signed in June 2017, after the EAGLE 4×4 was selected winner of the APV tender.
Deliveries of the 57 vehicles will begin by the End of 2021 and will be completed in 2022.
As noted by the company, the EAGLE family of vehicles is NATO interoperable and in service with various armed forces. It offers a high payload and a large protected interior in addition to a flexible load space at the rear of the vehicle. Depending on the mission role, 4×4 or 6×6 versions are available.
The EAGLE survivability standards provide proven mine, Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and ballistic protection that was previously achieved only in vehicles twice its weight. These advances in survivability and capability have been achieved without compromising mobility or reliability.
