Rheinmetall has racked up fresh successes in the field of advanced infantry and special operations equipment with its VarioRay family of laser light module products. In the first quarter of 2017, Austria’s Federal Ministry of the Interior ordered 580 VarioRay laser light module sets for Cobra, the country’s crack counter-terrorism unit. Worth over €1 million, the order is now in the delivery phase.

Last year, the Federal Ministry of National Defence and Sport ordered 600 tactical laser light module (TLLM) sets for the Austrian Federal Army for the StG 77 assault rifle, and a further 164 TLLM sets for the MG74 machine gun. The TLLM is based on the LLM-01 laser light module. This order too was worth over €1 million.

Rheinmetall’s tried-and-tested laser light modules are a key means of enhancing the tactical effectiveness of small arms carried by soldiers and law enforcement officers, who use these versatile devices to detect, identify and mark targets.
