LANCO Signs Contract with Bundeswehr to Supply Einheitszelt II Tents

New year, new opportunities! 

Starting 2024 off strong with a new contract. With the Bundeswehr no less!

LANCO was awarded a new framework agreement by the Bundeswehr. We will be the proud suppliers of the Einheitszelt type II legacy tent, already in use by the German armed forces since the 1990s.

The Einheitszelt II (EHZ II), or multi-purpose tent (MPT II), is in some ways similar to our RDT exoskeleton tents, while in other details to our INNOVA tents. These tents are mostly preferred by our defense and civil defense customers. They are robust, only need a minimum of ground preparation, they adapt well to the terrain and the fabric is in accordance with military standards. Another important benefit of these ranges of tents is that they are perfectly fit for long-term deployment in harsh environments.

The Einheitszelt II is designed to be versatile, durable and easily deployable. It is an essential part of military infrastructure, providing shelter for personnel and equipment during field operations. It will be equipped with modular rigid floors and packed in olive green metal racks thus increasing the deployment effciency.

The modular design ensures flexibility based on the specific needs of the mission, and use in all climate zones. The basic unit consists of 3 sections, 6.30 x 7.40 m, and it can be extended in 2.40 m steps. The assembly doesn't require any tools and it needs around 3-4 people. As far as the resistance to agents is concerned, the EHZ II can stand winds of 120 km/h and a snow load of 50 km/m².

Germany is home to one of the most advanced militaries in the world, as far as the equipment quality is concerned. We are more than happy to deliver nothing less and surpass their standards. The framework agreement that LANCO was recently awarded covers the supply of 200 Einheitszelt II tents.
