Ammunition for Armed Forces

RUAG’s long experience in the production of top-quality Swiss ordnance ammunition (5.56) plays a fundamental role in the development of all products. The product range includes versatile solutions for machine-gun shooters and designated marksmen. Modern warfare has shown, that the current operations call for increased power and accuracy under extreme conditions. The calibre 7.62 enables effective operative ranges of more than half a kilometre, thanks to the excellent precision and penetration capacity of RUAG ammunition. The wellproven NATO calibre 12.7 for heavy machine guns enables operative ranges which clearly exceed those achieved with conventional rifle calibres. In modern warfare shots at long distances mean a higher safety for the shooter. This, however, calls for special ammunition.
