Strong partner of the Spanish army: Rheinmetall supplies over 100,000 mortar rounds

Key facts
  • Rheinmetall commissioned to supply 104,000 mortar rounds
  • Order value in the high double-digit million euro range
  • Delivery by the end of 2025
  • Second framework contract for mortar shells to equip the Spanish army

Rheinmetall has received another order from the Spanish government in the higher double-digit million euro range. The Group is to supply the Spanish army with a total of 104,000 mortar rounds in 60mm, 81mm and 120mm calibres by the end of 2025. The framework agreement concluded in the first quarter of 2024 is already the second and includes an extension option for two additional years.

The mortar rounds ordered will be used by the Spanish army's infantry units, among others, in high explosive, smoke and illumination ammunition variants. Depending on the calibre and mortar system used, they have different ranges of between 2.59 km (60mm) and 8.25 km (120mm).

Rheinmetall mortar ammunition offers increased range, enhanced precision and optimised effectiveness on target, enabling forces to effectively engage targets in difficult terrain or in urban environments.

The current order from the Spanish government underlines Rheinmetall's leading role as a systems supplier in the field of steep-fire systems. Rheinmetall, one of the world's largest ammunition manufacturers, was recently awarded a contract to supply the Spanish army with 155mm artillery ammunition worth over €200 million.
