Rheinmetall announced the win of an air defence system contract, valued at €210 million, for an undisclosed international customer on 30 October. Delivery is to be complete by 2022.

The order includes the SKYMASTER command and control system, X-TAR 3D radar, Oerlikon REVOLVER Gun MK3 automatic cannon and an ammunition package that includes airburst-capable AHEAD rounds. Spare parts, technical documentation and service support round out the order.

As the world’s leading supplier of comprehensive ground-based air defence solutions, Rheinmetall combines all relevant sensors, effectors, platforms and C4I assets in overarching, scalable networks. This results in highly effective, modularly configurable ground-based air defence systems that assure maximum operational flexibility throughout the military mission spectrum.
