MBDA subsidiary TDW GmbH has been awarded a contract to produce and deliver 2,600 PARM to the German Armed Forces.
TDW and the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support signed the contract on 14 November 2023, marking the beginning of the procurement.
PARM is a fully automated anti-tank effector that can defeat modern Main Battle Tanks. Its warhead, fuzing mechanism and sensor kit meet the technical and operational demands of today.
A single soldier is able to carry PARM and the system requires little training and is combat proven. Through its modular design, PARM can easily be adapted with different sensors and a remote control.
MBDA is a unique multi-national European group in the field of complex weapon systems, and aims to play a key role in keeping nations safe.
“The order intake marks a first milestone of the ramp up of our production capacities. PARM strengthens TDW’s market position as a leading warhead company in Europe. We are convinced that PARM will help Germany, as well as other nations, develop and expand their area denial capabilities,” commented Andreas Seitz, Managing Director of TDW.
“TDW provides core competences in the field of anti-access/area-denial systems and warheads. With the procurement, PARM is in the process of returning to serial production, making it the most available, most powerful roadside counter-mobility system on the market,” said Thomas Gottschild, Managing Director MBDA Germany.
