P20’s first success in Germany

The P20 is a pintle-mounted system equipped with 20mm cannon, which can be used to arm all types of light 4x4 vehicles. It is perfectly suited to ground-to-ground and ground-to-air missions of close fire support, urban combat, protection, self-defense or intimidation. This assembly uses the 20M621 gasoperated gun conceived by Nexter’s teams in Bourges, renowned for its ease of use and maintenance, and fires 20x102 ammunition to NATO or M50 standards.

The P20 is an entry-level manual solution that provides the explosive and armour-piercing power of the 20mm calibre. This is why the BAAINBw has chosen the P20 to carry out a first experiment in Germany.

Two complementary consultations are expected in the near future: a call for tender for 20x102 ammunition and a second contract by 2021-2022 for additional P20 guns for the German Special Forces. This contract is a major first for Nexter, as it is the first equipment contract for the Bundeswehr signed by the group.

In this campaign, Nexter has benefited from the invaluable assistance of Krauss-Maffei-Wegmann (KMW), its partner in KNDS, which was able to accompany the Nexter teams in charge of the offer throughout the public consultation and negotiations.
