Also on 17 June 2024 at 4 p.m., a new demonstrator in the field of main battle tanks will be unveiled.

From 17 June 2024, Rheinmetall and its technology partner INERATEC will be presenting their Giga-PtX project vision for a war-ready fuel supply twice a day in the Demonstration Area. On the test track, the Caracal* airborne vehicle will demonstrate its high off-road capability using a synthetic fuel generated from hydrogen, CO2 and electricity. Media representatives will be able to view this demonstration in the Demonstration Area on 16 June 2024.

On 18 June 2024 at 11.00 a.m., Rheinmetall will present its Ermine (Hermelin) tactical small vehicles for the first time, which are characterised by new drive technologies and autonomous capabilities, and can be used both for tactical transport and as a mobile energy source.

Other key topics for Rheinmetall at Eurosatory 2024 include:

Air defence: Highly mobile, modular and scalable ground-based air defence systems are becoming increasingly important as NATO forces refocus on national and alliance defence. Rheinmetall is showcasing for the first time the Skyranger 35 turret on a Leopard 2 chassis as a tactical air defence system. In addition, a Lynx KF41 Skyranger 30 and the Boxer* Skyranger 30 wheeled air defence tank will be on display.

Network Enabled Warfare: As a leading systems integrator, Rheinmetall has all the necessary expertise to connect the various entities on the digitalised battlefield of the future. The Digitalized Brigade concept, including the Gladius 2.0 soldier system and the Tactical Core from our partner company blackned for interconnecting soldiers, platforms, sensors, effectors of combat units, and with new battle management and training applications will be showcased. This approach will be explained in a tangible way using a tank destroyer mission system concept.

Effect: For the first time, Rheinmetall is showing the modular, stabilised Natter weapon station family in action. The company is also showcasing its Remote Controlled Munition, a UGV-based infantry weapon system. Airborne precision loitering munitions (LM) increase the ability of even small units to conduct reconnaissance over the target area, and to engage targets at a distance and with precision. At the Eurosatory, Rheinmetall will be showcasing various Hero LM systems, which the company offers together with its partner UVision. The Dual Eimos 81mm mortar combat system, used by the Spanish Navy and Army, among others, will also be on the Rheinmetall stand.

Protection: Rheinmetall’s comprehensive expertise in protection technologies ranges from customised passive ballistic solutions to state-of-the-art active distance protection systems. At the Eurosatory 2024,

Rheinmetall will be presenting its comprehensive approach concerning protection concepts. This includes the unveiling of ROSY Top Attack, the new version of the tried-and-tested rapid obscurant system for protection against airborne attacks. Rheinmetall is also presenting a complete solution for military ballistic body armour for the first time.

Obstacle warfare: Operational experience from the Ukraine shows that obstacle warfare has regained importance. Rheinmetall is presenting the Keiler Next Generation, an armoured breaching vehicle (ABV) for fast opening of barriers in combat. The Area Defence Weapon, which can be used to protect barriers from being cleared, will also be on display. HX vehicle family: Rheinmetall’s HX vehicle family is characterised by outstanding mobility, versatility and a high, optionally available level of protection. This enables a flexible range of applications. Among the vehicles on display at the Eurosatory are an HX 8×8 with Automated Load Handling System (ALHS) and an HX 8×8 recovery vehicle.

Other innovations at the Eurosatory 2024 include the following:

– A new member of the Lynx KF41 combat vehicle family with 120mm turret;

– the Fuchs Evo with machine cannon turret;

– the Terrastorm, a MAN TGE van upgraded by RMMV and Torsus for military use,

– the Mission Master CXT, the latest member of Rheinmetalls Mission Master family of uncrewed

Ground Systems (UGS);

– the Chiller HVAC system, a new thermal module for combat vehicles;

Rheinmetall will also be showcasing its extensive expertise in almost all capability categories at the Eurosatory 2024. These include weapon and ammunition systems for threat-adequate and scalable effects, innovative and interconnectable sensor technology and topics from the fields of automation and robotics. Exhibits such as the LUNA NG reconnaissance drone and other unmanned aerial systems, military lorries from the TG series and protected containers for mobile medical equipment or command posts round off Rheinmetall’s presence at this year’s Eurosatory.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand E115/F115 on the outdoor exhibition grounds in Paris from 17 to 21 June 2024!
