Rheinmetall to Furnish Greece with Tank Ammunition Worth over €50 Million: Initial Supply for Leopard 2 tanks

Issue 55 - September 2014

Rheinmetall has won an important foreign order for large-calibre ammunition. Greece has contracted with the Düsseldorf-based defence contractor to supply the Hellenic armed forces with tank ammunition worth some €52 million. 

The order encompasses 12,000 rounds of 120mm ammunition, the initial supply for the Greek Army’s Leopard 2 tanks. Greece bought the tanks back in 2009; procurement of the accompanying ammunition was delayed for several years.
