DefenCell Force Protection System Contract for Eurocorps

J&S Franklin announce Eurocorps Order for DefenCell Force Protection System

J&S Franklin Limited, based in the UK, have announced an order from "Eurocorps" for DefenCell.

Eurocorps is a Multinational Army Corps within the framework of the Western European Union Common Defence Initiatives. Six countries participate in Eurocorps as framework nations, namely; France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Luxembourg, and Poland.

The order is for 600 DT1 and 120 T2 Multi Purpose Force Protection System, which will be used for stock purposes and for a joint Spanish, French, German, and Belgium ongoing training exercise in Burgos, Northern Spain.

Eurocorps chose DefenCell over any other system available on the market following Eurocorps previous experience of DefenCell being used by the Irish Defence Forces in Chad.

DefenCell is air-droppable, man portable and its non-metallic structure means it generates no secondary shrapnel and can be safely pushed off the back of a lorry with no risk of damage.

DefenCell is currently on operational deployment in Afghanistan with the British Army, where it is protecting two highly vulnerable ammunition supply points in two separate locations at Camp Bastion in Helmand province and Kandahar Airport, in Chad with the Irish Defence Force, and a number of US bases. It is deployed in facilities and force protection roles in the UK and Italy where it continues to meet the exacting requirements of operational troop and equipment protection in hostile environments.
