Rheinmetall has booked an order for additional Fieldguard 3 Fire Control measuring systems to be supplied to an international customer. Together with earlier systems covered by an existing framework contract from 2012, this order brings the total value for the systems including spare parts to €52 million. The delivery of the systems started in May 2015 and will be completed by September 2016.
The program was conceived in partnership with Avibras of Brazil to track its new long range Astros 2020 multiple rocket launcher system. Fieldguard 3 is capable to cover a range up to 100 Kilometers.
Rheinmetall´s open, professional working relationship with AVIBRAS Brazil offers a textbook example of successful international defence cooperation. Both companies see growth potential in the custumer’s region of eight to twelve more systems.
