Rheinmetall Defence announced the creation of Europe’s leading producer of military vehicles, offering a comprehensive array of tracked and wheeled vehicle systems.
Rheinmetall Defence has decided to consolidate its defence unit’s extensive military vehicle activities in a new division called “Vehicle Systems”. As a first step, Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH (RLS) and Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles GmbH (RMMV) have been placed under joint management effective from 1 January 2016.
The resulting unit is poised to be a comprehensive supplier of tracked and wheeled military vehicles and turret solutions, capable of meeting the complete ground mobility needs of the world’s armed forces – all from a single source. Under the new structure, Rheinmetall Defence will consist of the following three divisions: Vehicle Systems, Electronic Solutions and Weapons and Ammunition.
