The agreement will enable the companies to offer a comprehensive 120mm mortar system combining ST Engineering's 120mm Super Rapid Advanced Mortar System (SRAMS) weapon system with HDS' mortar fire control system and 120mm mortar ammunition. The result of this combination is a superior weapon system which is high in performance and reliability.

The agreement was signed at Eurosatory 2018, one of the largest defence exhibitions worldwide.

Mr Alexander MOiler, CEO, Hirtenberger Defence Systems said, "With the longtime experience in the field of weapons and ammunition the combination of capabilities of the two companies will make a difference in the 120mm mortar market."

Dr Lee Shiang Long, President of ST Engineering's Land Systems sector said, "The 120mm Super Rapid Advanced Mortar System (SRAMS) is a battle-proven system which can be integrated on both wheeled and tracked vehicles. Coupled with Hirtenberger's Fire Control System and 120mm mortar ammunition, we now offer a complete operational system that offers rapid and accurate fire.

Over the next three years, the companies will jointly market this unique system to customers in Europe. The SRAMS boasts unique features like the automatic Ammunition Loading System (ALS) that can achieve 10 rounds per minute for high rate of firing without crew fatigue. In addition, the patented Blast Diffuser feature reduces the high blast overpressure to below the allowable limit for the crew to operate safely during prolonged firing.
