The Army Combat Training Center (GÜZ) at the Altmark military training area is the German Army's central training facility for land-based operations. On up to 240 training and exercise days a year, soldiers of the Bundeswehr and friendly nations among others, are prepared in the best possible way for their upcoming foreign missions.
As early as 1995, in the early days of the Army Combat Training Center of the German Armed Forces, FFG acted as a subcontractor. The subject of the contract was the repair of vehicles. Regardless of a change in the industrial operator in the GÜZ in the meantime, FFG was able to present its quality of repair work until 2008. The subcontract with FFG was then interrupted. However, with its versatile qualities, FFG was again able to qualify for a subcontract from Saab Training and Simulation GmbH.
Since February 1, 2020, FFG has been subcontracted by Saab Training and Simulation GmbH for the maintenance of various vehicle types, vehicle components and additional devices. The contents of the order relate to repairs, preventive maintenance as well as rescovery support, vehicle-related tests and the introduction of engineering change proposals (ECPs). The repair work includes vehicles from the Wiesel to the Leopard 2, from the unarmored Wolf to the APC Fuchs and trucks of all classes including trailers. Furthermore, hand weapons, telecommunications technology and medical supplies are maintained by FFG. About 40 employees in the FFG service center in Letzlingen work for the GÜZ site to handle outstanding repair work.
