Green light for the Puma

Rheinmetall and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann to supply Bundeswehr with new IFV

The German Bundestag's budget committee cleared the way today for the procurement of 405 new Puma infantry fighting vehicles for the Bundeswehr. For Düsseldorf-based Rheinmetall AG and Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG of Munich, the order represents a combined total of some €3 billion in gross sales.

Further reading

Finally, at least one project that gets through without cuts and political bantering. Then again, unlike the A400M or Eurofighter, the Puma is a purely domestic product, so no fights over workshares here. The final version will be equipped with an Israeli Spike-ER launcher on the right side of the tower, an dvanced new ATGM with 8000m range.
