Press Release, Munich, 29 July 2022: Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Ulm-based defence company Elbit Systems Deutschland, and Elbit Systems Land have signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) to further expand the strategic cooperation.

The background is the modernisation and expansion of capabilities of the European Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS). In this context, Elbit will provide a modern active agent portfolio so that the requirements of MLRS users can be fully met, from range-enhanced rockets to practice ammunition. The users will thus also be able to train combined arms operations.

Yehuda ‘Udi’ Vered, General Manager of Elbit System Land, comments: “We’re pleased to be working with KMW in the area of rocket artillery. I believe that this venture creates synergies and is timely given the leading expertise of the companies involved and the growing demand for long-range precision firearms.”

“I very much welcome the cooperation with Elbit. With this partnership we underline the potential of our MLRS. The associated capability enhancements make this artillery rocket system one of the most modern worldwide,” says Ralf Ketzel, Chairman of the KMW Management Board.
