    According to a Request for Tender available on the New Zealand Ministry of Defence website, The New Zealand Army has chosen to replace the Steyr AUG currently in service with an AR-15 Style rifle manufactured by Lewis Machine & Tool. The US-based manufacturer was one of multiple companies chosen for the Individual Weapon Trial Phase, which was conducted between March 2nd and June 1st of 2015.

    After the trials, LMT was selected by the Ministry of Defence as the preferred Tenderer. Pending a Due Dilligence activity by the Ministry, negotiation of a contract package, and New Zealand Government approval, LMT will be awarded a contract to provide the rifles. The exact model of LMT rifle hasn’t been revealed, although according to sources, the rifles are expected to start fielding in 2016-2017.

    The New Zealand Army is already well acquainted with Lewis Machine & Tool, having selected and fielded a LMT DMR since 2012. Here is a video released by the NZDF of the LMT DMR in action:

    The latest issue of the British Army’s Soldier Magazine featured an article on the Virtus Program, including details on the kit.  In the US, we have the Soldier Protection System program which is quite similar to Virtus.  Among the gear displayed, you can see Revision’s Cobra Plus Helmet system and Sawfly Military Eyewear.

In addition, the Sawfly Spectacle and WolfSpider Goggle Systems will be provided for use when full-face coverage is not required.

    The first deliveries of Cobra Plus head protection systems are planned to be shipped quickly with 9,000 full systems scheduled for Fall 2015 enabling fielding to first-recipient troops in early 2016.

    Vectronix Introduces New Corporate Logo

    Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

    I’m sure you’ve heard of Vectronix and you’ve probably heard of Safran. If Safran isn’t familiar, maybe you know about Sagem’s French Future Soldier System, Felin? That’s them. The players are all heavy hitters in the defense industry and they’ve been affiliated with one another for some time. This is just a long overdue update to corporate imaging.

    Heerbrugg, Switzerland and Bedford, New Hampshire, USA


    Vectronix, a leading observation and precision targeting solutions provider, officially unveiled a newly redesigned logo and brand identity today to better reflect its affiliation as a Safran company. The new logo amplifies the synergy of both companies and their continuing commitment to provide world-class solutions to fulfill mission requirements for all customers. The new brand identity will be integrated into a comprehensive new website and across all Vectronix marketing material in the months ahead.

    Vectronix has been part of the Sagem group since 2003. In May 2005, Sagem merged with Snecma, the aerospace propulsion and equipment group, to form the Safran Group. Vectronix has been a subsidiary of Safran as part of its Optronics and Defense Division for the past 10 years, producing a long history of success. With the introduction of the new company branding, Vectronix will continue to offer its well-known portfolio of observation and targeting handhelds and introduce the Sagem portfolio to the U.S. defense industry.
