Rheinmetall Waffe Munition GmbH


Rheinmetall Waffe Munition specializes in the development and production of large calibre weapon systems and ammunition, including (for example) the main armament of the Leopard 2, the world's top-performing tank and the SMArt 155 sensor-fuzed ammunition for the artillery, developed by the joint venture cooperation GIWS.


Together with RWM Schweiz AG, the company also forms a centre of excellence for medium calibre automatic cannon, weapon systems and ammunition. Its chief products include vehicle-mounted weapons, aircraft cannon, naval guns and ammunition, as well as ammunition for antiaircraft systems.


Furthermore, protection systems and pyrotechnics are part of the RWM range of products, rounded off by the range of Rheinmetall Waffe Munition Arges GmbH. These include, for example, the Mass naval countermeasures system, which is already in service worldwide, as well as practice ammunition, 40 mm ammunition, non-lethal agents, flash and stun grenades (used by numerous SWAT teams), and other pyrotechnics.


In addition, the product range is rounded out by a wide array of services, like training courses for operating and maintenance, ammunition recycling and life cycle services.
