FFG readies PMMC G5 ACSV prototype for Norway

Germany’s Flensburger Fahrzeugbau Gesellschaft (FFG) has been awarded its first contract for a version of its Protected Mission Module Carrier G5 (PMMC G5) by the Norwegian Defense Material Agency (NDMA).
The March 2018 contract award covers the supply of a prototype configured as an Armoured Combat Support Vehicle (ACSV). This is expected to be delivered to the NDMA in 2020 for user trials and could be followed by a production contract for up to 160 units.

A customer-specified weapon remote weapon station (RWS) can be mounted on the roof.
