Major Order for Ammunition: NATO Customer Orders Artillery Ammunition from Rheinmetall – Worth Almost €300m

A NATO customer has placed an order with Rheinmetall for the supply of artillery ammunition. The order comprises several tens of thousands of artillery shells and several hundred thousand propellant charge modules. The total gross value of the orders booked in the second quarter of 2024 amounts to almost €300 million. The deliveries will take place between 2024 and 2028.

The need to replenish the armed forces’ ammunition stocks resulting from the war in Ukraine has brought Rheinmetall major orders in the field of artillery ammunition. The new orders once again emphasise Rheinmetall’s leading technological position in ammunition development and production in Europe.

    “several tens of thousands” of projectiles? what is that, a week or two of Ukraine-volume fire missions?

      Not even, back in March, 2023 ukraine was already going through 20,000 x 155mm projectiles per *DAY*.

      Not only that, gps guided projectiles have been less effective due to jamming so they’re going back to regular ammo. And that requires MORE ammo.

      Both sides demand for 155 indirect fire support are now heavily ammunition limited

    That is the state of the european industry. Four years to deliver a number of rounds that takes less than a few weeks to use. We should be able to produce half a million per year.
