The Rheinmetall Denel munitions ammunition capability demo is an event organized every year in South Africa with a live firing demonstration showcasing the Company's capabilities to guests from approximately 60 countries around the world. A wide range of weapons and ammunition are displayed, amongst 40mm grenades to guided bombs, as well as a wide range of artillery shells that include 155mm ammunition.

The Rheinmetall's new Multi-Mission UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicle) was unveiled in February 2017 during IDEX, a defense exhibition that was held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The Rheinmetall Mission Master, a multimission Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) allows to perform various mission profiles, from mule to force protection and surveillance, using a variety of modular payloads. Capable of performing in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas, the Rheinmetall Mission Master provides safety and security to the mounted and dismounted forces, increases their operational effectiveness, and keeps them out of harm’s way.

The Multi-Mission UGV unveiled by Rheinmetall is based on an 8x8 all-terrain platform but has also an optionally tracked configuration. Adaptable and highly modular, the Rheinmetall Mission Master features a platform that allows the operators to easily install the different payloads onto the vehicle to accomplish all kinds of missions. It can reach a top speed of 40 km/h.

The Thales twin (7x) 2.75" rocket launchers system is developed by Thales, through its subsidiaries TDA Armaments SAS and Forges de Zeebrugge SA ( FZ). At ACD 2019, the Thales rocket launcher system mounted on the Rheinmetall Multi-Mission UGV is fitted with two pods of seven launcher tubes able to fire 70mm guided and unguided rockets.
