Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) will equip the Israeli TROPHY protection system in German LEOPARD 2 battle tanks. The contract for this was signed with the German Equipment Office (BAAINBw) and the State of Israel on February 22nd, 2021.
The system is able to destroy incoming projectiles before they hit a tank. Together with the Israeli manufacturer Rafael, KMW adapted the TROPHY system to the LEOPARD 2 A7 and tested it together with the BAAINBw and the German user.
In addition to the scaffolding, the order also includes training and services.
The integration of TROPHY will be completed in 2023.
