The Spanish Company Eleycon 21 was awarded a contract from the Spanish Army for the delivery of IEDs detection vehicle Husky 2G for a total amount of 12.76 million of Euro. The tender was been processed under an urgent requirement and negotiate without official publication.
The Husky 2G is a two seats variant of the standard
Husky mine/IED detection armoured vehicle. The Husky 2G is currently in use by the U.S. Army soldiers in Afghanistan.
     

The order includes the purchase of six Husky 2G Mine IEDs clearing detection protected vehicle manufactured by the U.S. Company NIITEK and marketed in Spain by Eleycon 21.

The Husky 2G is a unique two-seater landmine IEDs detection unit that is blast-survivable, overpass-capable and field-reparable. This exceptional vehicle is a derivative of the single occupant Husky that has been combat proven in conflict situations around the world since the early 1980s.

The Husky two-seater variant allows for a second person to be placed in the vehicle. This two-seater VMMD (Vehicle Mounted Mine Detector) responds to the warfighter's immediate need to mitigate the risks of task overload on a single Husky operator, increases the Route Clearance Package's (RCP) ability to find and neutralise improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, and provides direct fire capability for the lead vehicle of the RCP.

The Spanish Army is planning to deploy these vehicles in Afghanistan to strengthen the security of Spanish troops during the withdrawal process, which will involve a large quantity of armoured vehicles and military personnel from several bases in the country.
