Due to the attack of Russia on democracy by starting a war against Ukraine to restore a Russian Empire, the attack demonstrated the weakness of defense of Europe at large. Hence, no surprise that interest in Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) capabilities is growing.
Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Elbit Systems Land and Elbit Systems Deutschland, have signed a strategic cooperation Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in the area of rocket artillery. As part of the MOU, Elbit Systems will provide an advanced portfolio of MLRS capabilities, from practice ammunition to long-range rockets.
Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, a member of the European German-French defense technology group KNDS, leads the European market for highly protected wheeled and tracked vehicles.
Elbit Systems Land offers a comprehensive portfolio of land-based platforms and ammunition solutions. From armored fighting vehicles to complete combat vehicle modernization, integrative platforms, airborne, artillery and mortar munition systems and ammunition and diverse protection kits, our customizable solutions are designed to provide enhanced survivability, operational effectiveness and maneuvering capabilities.
One can hope that the current left-wing government in Berlin does not turn this MoU into its opposite and prevent a meaningful cooperation.
