Pistorius: Germany to restart production of ammunition for Gepard guns

By Defence Industry Europe

Germany has signed contracts with the Rheinmetall to renew the manufacture of ammunition for Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (SPAAG), earlier supplied to Ukraine, according to German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius, cited by Reuters.

“We will quickly start our own production of Gepard ammunition at Rheinmetall. I am very happy we have been able to guarantee the delivery of this important part of air defence,” Boris Pistorius said on February 14 in Brussels.

Germany has already supplied 32 Gepard guns to Ukraine, including about 6,000 rounds of ammunition.
