Part of an extended family [AAD143]

19 September 2014

The extended family is a well-understood and valued concept in South African culture.

The joint presentation of Rheinmetall Denel Munition and Denel underlines that Rheinmetall Denel Munition is an integral part of the South African environment and strong member of the family.

Thus, Rheinmetall Denel Munition is present at AAD at the bigger Denel stand (Hangar 4, Stand D7). On display is an extensive range of hardware including a broad assortment of ammunition for indirect fire applications such as the extended r ange 40x51mm grenades, the 76/62 IM PFF (insensitive munition pre-formed fragmentation), the ballistically matched 155mm Assegai and the latest generation of 60mm patrol mortar bombs.

The company specialises in the design, development and manufacture of large and medium-calibre ammunition families and is a world leader in artillery, mortar, infantry and minefield breaching systems as well as having highly specialised capabilities in rocket and missile subsystems and plant engineering.

Rheinmetall Denel Munition serves customers in Asia, the Middle East, and South America, as well as of course in South Africa.
