Rheinmetall to supply Bundeswehr with tank ammunition

November 19, 2018

 

The Bundeswehr has awarded Rheinmetall a major contract for tank ammunition. Encompassing 13,000 rounds of 120mm x 570 DM88 ammunition, the order is worth €21.4 million, including value added tax.

 

Delivery begins in November 2018, and should be complete by the end of the year. The DM88 is an advanced practice round made specifically for the Leopard 2 main battle tank. Ballistically, it is identical to the service ammunition developed and supplied by Rheinmetall, and meets the Bundeswehr’s full range of specifications with regard to precision and handling safety.
