Appeal lodged against Spanish IFV turret contract

by David Ing

Israeli-owned Pap Tecnos has launched an appeal against Spain's decision to award the 30 mm turret contract for its new 8×8 Dragón infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) to Spanish company Escribano Mechanical & Engineering.

In a document presented to the Spanish Ministry of Defence (MoD) Pap Tecnos, a Spanish subsidiary of Rafael, claims the rival bid did not meet the requirements laid down in the contract.

This “put in danger the correct development of the programme and the security of the [vehicle's] users”, according to a statement released by the company on 22 July.
