The Netherlands Procure Leguan Bridge Layers
 
On 20 December 2016, the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment (BAAINBw) on behalf of the Dutch procurement office (DMO), signed an agreement with Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) for the procurement of 5 Leguan bridge layer systems on Leopard 2 chassis.

The entire procurement plan also includes training simulators, accessory equipment and an option for additional bridge layer systems. The vehicles will be transferred to the Dutch army in 2019 and 2020. This version of the Leguan is capable of laying and transporting 26 metre long bridge, even under the combat conditions.

The Dutch army has become the sixth user of the Leguan on Leopard 2 chassis. In total, armies from 17 countries operate the Leguan bridge layer system on various mobility platforms.
