Blasts and detonations at the Firing Range
There’s no job quite like that of a defence reporter, that’s a fact. This week was no exception with a visit to the Rheinmetall proving ground in Unterlüß in Germany.
With 32 countries represented at the 2016 Rheinmetall Land Forces Symposium this was a great chance for the company and its partners to showcase the latest tech. As well as provide quite the spectacle for onlookers.
Now I wanted to keep this one short and sweet so I could show you some of the stuff I experienced at the live firing event. Enjoy.
(Warning if you have your earphones in – you might want to check your volume level).
Once darkness fell we experienced some tracer rounds with a firing range of 1000m.
Day two involved plenty of small rounds firing, onto bigger mortars and the presence of the PZH 2000 and the Puma. Lots of loud bangs!
