Rheinmetall is presenting a selection of its extensive array of law enforcement and security products at Milipol 2017.
Developed in cooperation with special vehicle maker Achleitner, Rheinmetall’s SURVIVOR is extremely well suited for police special operations. In Germany, state-level police forces in Berlin and Saxony have already opted to equip their SWAT teams with the SURVIVOR R. Based on a high-performance 4x4 MAN truck chassis, the SURVIVOR R is fitted with a steel armour cab. Capable of reaching speeds of over 100 km/h, the vehicle combines tried-and-tested automotive technology from major production runs with the latest force protection concepts from Rheinmetall. For the first time ever, Rheinmetall is showcasing the vehicle in Paris with an integrated QIMEK weapon station.
Rheinmetall furthermore offers a comprehensive array of pyrotechnic products. When it comes to SWAT team-type operations, the group’s portfolio of multi-bang grenades and improved-performance flash-bang grenades with bottom-top venting (BTV) technology offers the perfect solution. They are extremely safe to handle, highly precise and very reliable. Rheinmetall has developed a wide assortment of flares for signalling and for illuminating the area of operations at night. These include the handheld Mithras, with ranges of 300, 600 and 1,000 metres, with versions available for the visible and infrared sector.
Rheinmetall has recently added two more modular components to its VarioRay family of laser light modules. The VarioRay LowProfile laser module and the separate LUMENATOR weapon lamp with 500-lumen illumination power provide the user with even greater tactical flexibility – despite their extremely small dimensions. The new products are key components for boosting the operational effectiveness of modern small arms. Moreover, visitors to the Rheinmetall stand at MILIPOL 2017 can learn about other members of the VarioRay family as well as the Group’s MultiRay MR 500 and MR 800 fire control aiming devices. Also on display is the TAC-Ray 1500 sniper build-on module with integrated ballistic computer.
