    Modularity

    Wegmann protection systems in configurations MPL-76 and MPLext-76 are modular in design and can be safely integrated into a wide variety of vehicles and weapons stations, as well as for site defence.

    System competence

    KMW supports forces in deployment with highly effective systems to protect against reconnaissance and threats from a wide range of effectors. Depending on the customer’s effect requirements, the protection system can use the corresponding ammunition in calibres 76mm or 40mm LV. Smoke ammunition thwarts the enemy’s target acquisition and reconnaissance with day and night-vision optics.

    Wegmann protection systems in configurations Multi-Purpose Launcher System 76mm (MPL-76), Multi-Purpose Launcher Extended System 76mm (MPLext-76) and Multi-Purpose Launcher System 40mm (MPL-40) are modular in design and can be safely integrated into a wide variety of vehicles and weapons stations for site defence. They can also be used in autonomous operation, such as for camp defence. Upon request, KMW supports all customers with specific system solutions for protection system integration.
