• Leonardo will equip German Armed Forces’ assault rifles with the latest generation ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4x optics;
• With first deliveries to take place in the third quarter of 2021, the Bundeswehr will join a number of NATO countries which already have these systems successfully in service;
• The new agreement reinforces Leonardo's technologies role as a key enabler of battlefield digitalization for Germany and NATO.

Leonardo, through its subsidiary Leonardo Germany GmbH, has signed a framework agreement with the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) for the supply of up to 107,929 daylight optics for use on both current and new Bundeswehr assault rifles.

Leonardo will deliver ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4x sights adapted to the requirements of the Bundeswehr (bundeswehr.de). The specific adaptations refer to a modified reticle and a housing with an integrated Picatinny rail. The most important design change is the ability to operate the switching mechanism from 1x to 4x magnification on both sides of the new sight for assault rifles, while retaining the compact design and robustness of the optic.

First deliveries of the sight will take place in the third quarter of 2021.

Leonardo is pleased to equip and support the German Armed Forces with the ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4 x daylight optics, which are already successfully in service with various NATO nations. For the German subsidiary, the recently signed agreement with the Bundeswehr represents an important push for its soldier systems sector. The product portfolio for this business unit includes innovative laser systems, night vision and thermal imaging technology, which are already being used by military and special forces in Germany and NATO.

The new daylight optics for the Bundeswehr, the ELCAN Specter® DR 1-4x, represents a vital component of an entire optronic system for infantry missions.
