The German Bundeswehr has awarded Rheinmetall to supply 120mm mortar ammunition and modernise its mortar systems in service for €27 million, Rheinmetall writes in a press release. Rheinmetall offers a complete range of 120mm, 81mm and 60mm ammunition families. The Group also makes mortar fire control systems and mortars like the 120mm Ragnarök mortar weapon system and the RSG60 60mm mortar introduced in 2019.




Rheinmetall will complete the upgrading by 2023. The most important point of modernisation is installing a sealing ring, which also seals the pipes at the new, higher pressures. As part of this order, Rheinmetall has supplied the Bundeswehr with DM75 NG multispectral mortar rounds and DM56 NG infrared illumination mortar rounds in 2021.
