Mine-clearing Vehicles from the Keiler to the German Route Clearance System
The use of explosive ordnance such as mines and so-called ‘booby traps’ has been, right up until the present time, a way to effectively restrict enemy movement. The focus of this threat in current German Army foreign operations is the improvised explosive device.

The Bundeswehr is therefore continuously adapting methods of clearing explosive ordnance.
In 1996-98 it procured Minenräumpanzer Keiler mine-clearing tanks, to present day the German engineer’s heaviest tool of trade and currently being upgraded.
The most modern mine-clearing system of the Bundeswehr is the German Route Clearance System consisting of a TPz 1 Fuchs A8A12 protected Operator Team Vehicle, two remote-controlled elements, the Detection Vehicle based on the Wiesel 1 and the Manipulator Vehicle Mini MineWolf MW240, plus support vehicles.

In this publication the Keiler and the Route Clearance System are described in full for the first time.
