Danish Army Specific: On the 9th of December 2005 The Danish Army Material Command signed a contract with Mowag regarding the deliverance of 85 Eagle IV. They were scheduled to be delivered from August 2006 with the last vehicles to arrive in December 2007. The vehicles eventually replaced the older Eagle I as well as a number of light- and un-armoured 4 x 4 vehicles.
Before deployment to Afghanistan in 2009 a number of vehicles were issued the Pilar MK-IIw
