In September 2017, the US Marine Corps (USMC) ordered day and night-capable 40mm x46 practice cartridges worth around U$3 million (€2.5 million), cartridges that contain no environmentally damaging substance and are being produced by American Rheinmetall Munitions, Inc. (ARM) in Camden, AR/USA. Deliveries started in December 2017.

The US Navy is procuring the latest advanced flash-bang grenade from Rheinmetall, now type classified by the US government as the MK 24 MOD 0, under a new deliver order worth U$3.8 million (€3.2 million). Delivery will take place in 2018 through ARM, although these non-lethal diversionary devices will be produced at the Rheinmetall plant in Trittau, Germany.

ARM is a subsidiary of Rheinmetall Defence of Düsseldorf, Germany. 


One of the world’s foremost makers of 40mm weapon systems and ammunition, Rheinmetall is also a major supplier of special effects munitions. In both domains, the group covers the complete capabilities spectrum, supplying armed forces and law enforcement agencies around the world with components and systems. Besides 40mm low-velocity and high-velocity ammunition, Rheinmetall is pushing ahead with the development of a forward-looking family of 40mm medium-velocity ammunition. (Photo: Rheinmetall)
