Small-calibre ammunition

MESKO offers small-calibre and special ammunition for military use.

MESKO’s range of small-calibre ammunition includes cartridges in a variety of sizes and tracer / armour piercing projectiles.

The company produces modern, reduced-ricochet risk ammunition in order to solve problems connected with training at military and civil firing ranges, where live ammunition is used. Even though this ammunition has a 50% shorter range than live ammunition of the same calibre, it still remains accurate in hitting the target using standard sight instruments.

Medium-calibre ammunition

MESKO produces 12.7mm x 99mm ammunition in several variants of M33 BALL, M33 BALL Sniper, MP, MP Sniper, MP-T, APS, SG-T, and reduced ricochet risk ammunition (RR-T).

MESKO is the only producer of modern 23mm x 152mm sub-calibre ammunition APDS-T and FAPDS-T for anti-aircraft guns (ZU-23). The cartridges are made of tungsten heavy alloys, which make them a strong competitor to other cartridges with high-explosive incendiary and armour-piercing incendiary projectiles.

The company produces 30mm x 173mm ammunition in four variants, MP-T/SD, TP-T, APFSDS-T, and FAPDS-T for 30mm cannon Boeing Bushmaster II/MK44-30/40, Mauser Model 30-2, and another armament mounted on the ROSOMAK wheeled, armoured transporter.

MESKO’s 35mm x 228mm cartridges, with frangible, armour-piercing, sabot-tracer FAPDS-T, are used for destroying air targets and ground targets, including armoured and combat vehicles up to 4,000m away. The plant also produces training ammunition, TP-T, of this calibre, which is used for shooting with a KDA cannon, mounted on a PZA Loara, a self-propelled, anti-aircraft gun system.

Large-calibre ammunition

MESKO produces ammunition for 120mm Rh 120 L44 TANK GUN in four variants, of APFSDS-T, APFSDS-T-TP, HE, HE-TP, and ammunition for 125mm 2A46 TANK GUN in two variants, namely HE and GUN FIRE IMITATOR ROUND (training ammunition).

Anti-aircraft missile systems

GROM is a modern anti-aircraft missile system designed to target low-flying helicopters and airplanes. The system is portable, it can be operated by one soldier and it can also be mounted on land platforms and helicopters. The company’s fire-and-forget missiles are equipped with a seeker, which has options for identifying a target as friend or foe and thermovision.

Anti-armour missiles

One of the most modern anti-armour missiles, AAMS SPIKE, is a new fibre-optic medium range version, used as an anti-armour weapon with high hit probability for operations, day or night, and in adverse weather conditions. Rockets such as the NLPR 70mm (2.75in) are intended for engaging targets on water and on land, including lightly armoured vehicles and infrastructure.

Mortar ammunition

The company offers 98mm mortar rounds with demolition-fragmenting projectile, designed to combat hidden targets, enemy personnel, and armoured or non-armoured vehicles.

Heavy alloys department

MESKO has the technology to manufacture rods from tungsten powders with admixtures, used for the production of projectiles and ammunition cores in the following ammunition types: 12.7mm, 23mm, 30mm, 35mm, 105mm, 115mm, 120mm, 125mm. The maximum rod length is 600mm.

Demilitarisation of outdated combat resources

The modern demilitarisation of MESKO’s outdated ammunition stockpiles plant was built on the premises of the company. It has two lines for demilitarisation. The first is for the demilitarisation of artillery ammunition calibre 57mm – 155mm, rocket engines and propellant charges using devices for dismantling ammunition, TNT melting and underwater sawing. The second line is for the demilitarisation of ammunition calibre 5.56mm – 35mm, fuses and grenades using explosives, an incinerator and a detonation furnace.

Applied technology is based on the most modern techniques, which do not cause soil and water pollution. Secreted exhaust gases are purified. The line meets UE standards for environmental protection.
