    Rheinmetall to supply Royal Thai Army with four air defence systems

    088182a6.jpg

    For the first time ever, the Royal Thai Army has awarded Rheinmetall a major contract for air defence technology. The multi-million euro order encompasses four latest-generation Skyguard systems.

    In all, the Group’s Swiss subsidiary Rheinmetall Air Defence will be supplying Thailand with four Oerlikon Skyguard 3 fire control systems and eight 35mm Oerlikon GDF007 Twin Guns. The order also includes Rheinmetall’s tried-and-tested and unique Ahead airburst ammunition and additional services.

    For Rheinmetall Air Defence, the Royal Thai Army is another new customer in Asia who introduces a 35mm air defence system. Rheinmetall thus attaches great commercial importance to this recently awarded contract.
