Ammunition for Armed Forces

For NATO it is vital to ensure that the Member States can exchange ammunition, ensuring a minimum level of reliability and constancy. While the demands imposed on ammunition are usually high, RUAG always strives to greatly surpass the level of quality required....

To achieve this, the company relies on state-of-the-art production equipment and solid know-how accumulated over many years. Thanks to high vertical integration and a very advanced Quality Management System, our products set new quality benchmarks.
