Two Vehicle Mounted Mine Detectors (VMMD) have been delivered to the Philippines
Two VMMDs with integrated logistic support have just been delivered to the Philippines Army and training is about to start. This is just the first tranche of four VMMDs contracted to be delivered by the end of 2022. The VMMD, based on the Armtrac 100-350 Mk2, provides the capability to accommodate two operators within the armoured cabin to operate a vegetation cutter on the rear robotic arm to clear high vegetation on roadsides and a detector on the front robotic arm to detect the IEDs together with a paint marker to indicate the position. A small excavator bucket, fitted to the rear robotic arm in place of the vegetation cutter, allows some excavation of earth for exposing buried Explosive Ordnance (EO).
