American Rheinmetall Munitions’ product portfolio further includes propellants, fuzing and protection systems for vehicle survivability. Other capabilities include load, pack, assembly and full rate production.

As a leading U.S. provider of innovative munitions technologies, ARM provides advancements in lethality with next-generation weapon systems like the 30 x 173 mm MK30-2/ABM medium caliber (airburst capable) cannon, the PzH 2000* 52 caliber Self Propelled Howitzer, the 35 x 228 mm externally-driven medium caliber cannon and the 130 mm smoothbore developmental tank cannon.
 

* In the joint venture with the prime contractor Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Rheinmetall is responsible for about 50% of the PzH 2000.

ARM is committed to continued growth in the U.S. through its strategic teaming efforts, investment in local U.S. production, and superior program, supply-chain and production management all of which are aimed at providing next-generation capabilities to U.S. warfighters at an affordable price.

Expansions to U.S. production

The MK281 MOD 3 40 mm High Velocity and the M1110 40 mm Low Velocity Day-Night Training Cartridges are produced at ARM’s state-of-the-art facility located in Camden, Arkansas. ARM is currently establishing a medium caliber “flex-line” that will initially manufacture the PGU-48/B 25 mm Frangible Armor Piercing (FAP) cartridge for the USAF F-35A Joint Strike Fighter. In addition, ARM has established a 40 mm automated, air burst fuze production facility in Windham, ME that not only provides a precision counter-defilade capability to Soldiers and Marines, but also brings advanced manufacturing to the U.S. industrial base while creating additional quality U.S. manufacturing and engineering jobs.
