Statement on the use of GL06 in France / Avis sur l'utilisation du GL06 en France

24.01.2019

Version française si-dessous

In various media, accusations are being levelled at the company B&T AG in connection with the use of the LBD40 in France. These accusations falsely state that the munitions used, which are regarded as dangerous or unfit for use, were manufactured and delivered by B&T. Furthermore, the LBD40 launcher (B&T designation: GL06) has been assessed as being imprecise and dangerous.

To this end, we must assert that the munitions used in France were neither designed, manufactured nor delivered by B&T AG. Therefore, we cannot assess the risk potential of the munitions used in France. However, we must make it clear in this context  that  the munitions used in each case constitute a substantial proportion with regard to the action and precision.

B&T AG can confirm that the launchers used in France were produced by B&T AG and exported to France properly according to the legal regulations with an approved export license. Regarding the accusations that the device is imprecise and dangerous, we must assert that – as mentioned previously – the munitions used are primarily responsible for action and precision. To attribute poor precision and an increased risk of injury to the launcher is therefore technically wrong. Therefore, the launcher cannot fundamentally be assessed to be an imprecise and dangerous device.

B&T AG knows that the LBD40 or GL06 together with the SIR cartridges that we manufacture shows good precision and a low risk of injury. The SIR cartridge is, however, not being used in France. The risk potential of our SIR cartridge was assessed by Swiss Police forces and was approved for use. When used correctly (GL06/SIR), a low risk of injury can be assumed. Regarding these findings and the experience of the user that by using this system, individual aggressors (e.g. those throwing stones or Molotov cocktails) can be approached in a targeted way and thus a huge crowd of peaceful protestors is affected as little as possible, in recent years has led to the GL06 System with SIR impulse cartridge superseding or supplementing older products with higher risks of injury or more harmful effects for the masses, such as batons, rubber bullets and tear gas in the crowd control services.

To conclude, it must be asserted that the LBD40 (GL06), together with the SIR munitions manufactured by B&T, is a precise and effective product that comes with little risk of injury. When using munitions of thirdparty manufacturers, in some cases precision decreases and the risk of injury rises significantly.


Version française

En ce moment, l’on voit dans divers médias des accusations adressées à la société B&T AG en relation avec l’utilisation du LBD40 en France. Ces accusations prétendent à tort que les munitions utilisées, considérées comme dangereuses ou impropres, ont été fabriquées et livrées par B&T. En outre, le lanceur LBD40 (désignation de B&T: GL06) est jugé imprécis et dangereux.

Nous devons insister à cet égard, que les munitions utilisées en France n’ont pas été conçues, fabriquées ni livrées par B&T AG. Par conséquent, nous ne pouvons pas juger le danger potentiel des munitions utilisées en France. Toutefois, il doit être souligné à ce propos que les munitions utilisées exercent une influence substantielle sur les effets et la précision.

B&T AG peut confirmer que les lanceurs utilisés en France ont été produits et exportés correctement par B&T AG conformément aux dispositions législatives et accompagnés d’une autorisation d’exportation approuvée. En ce qui concerne les accusations d’imprécision et de dangerosité de l’appareil, nous devons prendre en compte le fait que, comme nous l’avons déjà dit, les munitions utilisées portent la principale responsabilité des effets et de la précision. C’est pourquoi il est techniquement faux d’accuser le lanceur de la mauvaise précision et du risque de blessures élevé. Par conséquent, le lanceur ne peut pas être jugé comme fondamentalement imprécis et dangereux.

B&T sait que le LBD40, resp. GL06, en combinaison avec les cartouches SIR fabriquées par nous, présente une bonne précision et un faible risque de blessures. Les cartouches SIR ne sont pas employées en France. Les police cantonales de Suisse ont évalué le potentiel de risque de nos cartouches SIR et les autorisées pour l’emploi. En cas d’utilisation adéquate du système (GL06/SIR), l’on peut s’attendre à un risque de blessures faible. Ce constat et les expériences des utilisateurs confirmant que ce système permet d’aborder les agresseurs isolés (p. ex, lanceurs de pierres ou de cocktails Molotov) de façon ciblée et de limiter au maximum les dégâts collatéraux pour des groupes de manifestants pacifiques de toute taille ont eu pour résultat ces dernières années que le système GL06 avec les cartouches à impulsion SIR a remplacé ou complété dans le domaine du service d’ordre les anciens moyens d’intervention à risques de blessures plus élevés ou à effets nocifs pour les masses, comme la matraque, les balles en caoutchouc et la gaz lacrymogène.

Pour résumer, force est de constater que le LBD40 (GL06), en association avec les munitions SIR fabriquées par B&T, est un moyen d’intervention précis et efficace avec un faible risque de blessures. En cas d’utilisation de munitions des autres fabricants, il y a le risque que la précision baisse et le risque de blessures augmente considérablement.
