Rheinmetall has entered a framework agreement to supply the German Army’s Leopard 2 battle tanks with 120 x 570 mm high-explosive DM11 ammunition.

German armament procurement office, the BAAINBw has placed an order for 5,000 DM11 rounds worth around 45EUR million. Delivery will take place in 2017 and 2018.

The DM11 round is programmed after loading. This means that the fuse programming can be altered at any time. It can be used in impact fuse mode/point detonation, point detonation with delay and air burst modes.
