The German Army has ordered laser duel simulators from Rheinmetall AG for the Bundeswehr's Army Combat Training Center, Rheinmetall announced.

The order is worth nearly $22.9 million.

The AGDUS HdWa -- or "Training Device, Duel Simulator, Small Arms" -- system is a leading laser- and wireless-supported duel simulation system based on Rheinmetall's LEGATUS family of products and supersedes existing first-generation Bundeswehr systems.

Under the contract with the military, the company will produce more than 2,000 laser transmitter units for small arms and 1,500 soldier target sets featuring "AGDUS passiv Soldat" laser sensors.

The new technology is compatible with practically all standard-issue Bundeswehr infantry weapons, including pistols and assault rifles, the G28 and G82 sniper rifles, the MP7 submachine gun, MG4 and MG5 machine guns, and the AG40 automatic grenade launcher and simulators for hand grenades.

Rheinmetall gave no information as to a delivery schedule for the equipment.

Washington DC (SPX) Apr 28, 2016
Today's ground-based armored fighting vehicles are better protected than ever, but face a constantly evolving threat: weapons increasingly effective at piercing armor.
