"They [also] need similar products. In this process, we may sign new contracts," he added.
The export to the Philippines is said to be the first for the product.
Kunduz is an amphibious, armored, tracked, combat earthmover designed for the preparation of river banks during river-crossing missions.

It is capable of doing bulldozing, rough grading, excavating, hauling, and scraping, according to the company.
The acquisition of the Kunduz is said to be part of the Philippine Army's Combat Engineering Equipment Lot 2 - Armored Combat Engineer Earthmover Acquisition Project, which is a Horizon 2 phase Priority Project of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP).
