Germany Gives Troops New Equipment To Counter IEDs

BONN – Germany will equip its troops in Afghanistan with much-needed systems to remotely detect and destroy mines and IEDs. The aim is to purchase seven systems, each consisting of a rebuilt Wiesel air-transportable light armored vehicle outfitted with additional equipment, such as a special radar system and a remotely controlled mine clearance system provided by MineWolf Systems AG, which is headquartered in Switzerland.
