Rheinmetall promises Ukraine tens of thousands of ammunition and military equipment

Today, one of the most important partners of Ukraine's defense industry as a supplier of military equipment is the German concern Rheinmetall, based in Dusseldorf. The concern promises to supply the Ukrainian army with a large amount of ammunition and armored vehicles this year and next year.

This is stated in a press release on the manufacturer's website. The concern summarized its progress and outlined plans for the future.

Rheinmetall plans to supply Ukraine with ammunition of various calibers, armored vehicles, trucks, Leopard tanks, and air defense systems.

Today, Rheinmetall is the only defense contractor capable of supplying the Ukrainian military with a large number of new medium and large caliber ammunition, including 20 mm for Marder infantry fighting vehicles, 40 mm and 105 mm for Leopard 1 and 120 mm for Leopard 2.

Last year, Rheinmetall also supplied the Ukrainian Armed Forces with 40,000 rounds of 35 mm ammunition for the Gepard anti-aircraft tank.

In addition, the German concern is an important strategic partner of Ukraine in the supply of 155-mm artillery ammunition. Rheinmetall plans to supply tens of thousands of these shells this year.

In addition to Germany, another NATO member state has commissioned Rheinmetall to supply Ukraine with a large number of 155-mm ammunition. These rounds will be produced by Rheinmetall's Spanish manufacturer Expal Munitions and delivered to Ukraine in 2025.

Marder infantry fighting vehicle

By the end of 2023, Rheinmetall had supplied more than 100 Marder infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine. Further deliveries in the "double-digit range" will take place in 2024.

On behalf of the governments of the Netherlands and Denmark, Rheinmetall is supplying 14 Leopard 2A4 main battle tanks. Two of these battle tanks have already been delivered to the Ukrainian Armed Forces for training. The rest will be delivered this year.

Skynex air defense system

Rheinmetall's state-of-the-art Skynex system is designed for very close-range air defense operations where guided missiles are ineffective.

Last year, the first Skynex system was delivered to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The supply of Skynex systems will continue through 2024.

The 35-mm ammunition developed by Rheinmetall for this particular air defense system is unique, as it cannot be defeated by electronic countermeasures, the company emphasizes.

Skynex systems are installed on the new Rheinmetall HX trucks with a variable body.

HX trucks

Manufactured by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles, HX trucks are among the most widely used military vehicles in the world, with a global reputation for durability, off-road mobility, ease of use, and modularity that sets them apart from industry competitors.

Currently, there are about 100 Rheinmetall trucks in Ukraine, and recently another 26 brand-new HX trucks were delivered directly from the plant.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

The German concern Rheinmetall has set up a joint venture with the Ukrainian Defense Industry (formerly Ukroboronprom). The joint company will be engaged in the maintenance and repair of equipment that Ukraine has received from its partners.

Rheinmetall will also build a new ammunition plant that will produce ammunition only for Ukraine and Germany. It is promised to do this in record time, and the products will be produced quickly.
