General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (OTS) announced today a teaming agreement with Dynamit Nobel Defence GmbH (DND) in which the two companies will collaborate to present a Recoilless Grenade Weapon series to the U.S. DoD market. This Recoilless
Grenade Weapon series will be centered around Dynamit Nobel Defence’s 60mm (RGW60) and 90mm (RGW90) variants. It is a complete toolbox of shoulder-launched infantry weapon systems giving dismounted forces the edge over any opponent. RGW 90 (Recoilless Grenade Weapon) is a 90mm man-portable, anti-armour, multi-purpose weapon system manufactured by German-based company Dynamit Nobel Defence. All RGW 60 variants share the same design concept as Dynamit Nobel Defence’s RGW 90 series of weapons.
“Fostering strategic relationships is key to delivering the best combat capability to the warfighter, we look forward to building on this commitment with our colleagues at DND. We will leverage our tactical air munitions expertise with DND’s 60 years of experience in the development and production of shoulder-launched weapons for anti-armor and multipurpose missions,” said Eric Ellis, Vice President and General Manager of Precision Systems at General Dynamics-OTS.
