The Dutch Defence Materiel Organization (DMO) has concluded a ten-year framework agreement with Rheinmetall covering the supply of 35mm medium-calibre ammunition for Infantry Fighting Vehicles, 40mm ROSY smoke ammunition and modern 155mm artillery ammunition. This has an annual volume of €50m.
Rheinmetall is thus continuing its long-standing cooperation with the Netherlands, which was only strengthened last year with the conclusion of a partnership agreement. In conjunction with this, Rheinmetall has assumed responsibility for the complete 155mm portfolio, which ranges from the current Assegai ammunition range to modular charges and fuzes. Through this framework agreement, DMO aims to ensure the supply of state-of-the-art, high-performance ammunition to the Dutch armed forces – now and in the future. Initial call-offs under the new framework contract are in preparation on the customer side.
