Italy’s Leonardo (Hall 6, Stand C300/B301) has just announced the inking of a new commercial partnership with Konstrukta Defence of Slovakia.

Supporting the objectives of the European PeSCo (Permanent Structured Cooperation) initiative on developing common defence capabilities, the agreement will see Leonardo’s precision-guided Vulcano ammunition (pictured) integrated onto Konstrukta’s Zuzana 2 155mm/52 calibre artillery system.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will jointly market the products internationally, while exploring further collaboration towards developing common European defence capabilities. Italy and Slovakia are members of PeSCo.
