The EXCALIBUR ARMY company has already completed several successful projects in Southeast Asia. A contract for special bridging vehicles for Indonesian armed forces worth billions of crowns is currently being implemented. Deliveries are scheduled for three years, with the first batch of vehicles received by the customer last month. Specifically, the Indonesian army just acquired tens of M3 self-propelled bridging systems and support and logistic vehicles. This contract is one of the largest projects that EXCALIBUR ARMY has carried out in Indonesia.

In the past, the EXCALIBUR ARMY company delivered RM-70 Vampire rocket launchers together with special support and command vehicles, produced and equipped in cooperation with other Czech and Slovak companies, to Indonesia. The company has continued to supply missile technology and spare parts for land vehicles to Indonesia, and it also provides services for the Indonesian army and its marine corps.

The EXCALIBUR ARMY company has cooperated with its strategic partner, General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS), on the latest contract for the special bridging and military engineering vehicles supply to Indonesia. This cooperation has been a result of the long-term good relations between both companies, thanks to which EXCALIBUR ARMY could offer an Indonesian customer a product that filled the gap in the local market. In addition to this contract, EXCALIBUR ARMY also offers other combat and engineer equipment from its portfolio as well as from the partner CSG companies to Southeast Asian countries.
