For 50 years now, FFG (stand No. 08-D34) has been a reliable partner to Armed Forces for all issues around combat vehicles. Today, FFG is an internationally successful high-tech company that sets new standards with innovations in both, the civil and military field. Clients from over 40 countries have been satisfied customers and partners with FFG for many years.

FFG’s core skills include the development, manufacture, modification and optimization of armoured tracked and wheeled vehicles. We also provide the full spectrum of through life support, repairs, spares, and maintenance, and the safety concepts for crew protection as well as mine and ballistic protection.


The WISENT 2 is one of the world’s most advanced multifunctional vehicle platforms, based on the LEOPARD 2 – one of the world’s most successful tracked vehicles. With the WISENT 2, FFG provides a support vehicle that was specially developed for current operations and deployment scenarios. Its armoured recovery vehicle configuration makes the WISENT 2 a real powerhouse: With a crane for loads of up to 32t and a 46t main winch. Combat recovery equipment enables the recovery and towing of equipment under armoured protection. And in its armoured engineer vehicle configuration, the WISENT 2 is right on target with a modern hinged arm excavator for moving up to 300 cubic meters of earth per hour, and a special high-performance dozer blade. Due to its modular design, the WISENT 2 can be converted quickly from ARV to AEV in less than five hours. The first three user nations of this innovative concept are Canada, Qatar and UAE.


The PMMC G5 has been developed by FFG to meet the requirements of the home and export markets that require a replacement of existing vehicles in their inventory. A special focus in the design of the PMMC G5 was laid on outstanding protection capabilities. As a key feature, the PMMC G5 can rapidly be fitted with various standardized mission modules to meet different mission requirements. The mission modules can be changed within a few hours.
