RUAG Ammotec, established in 1863, produce high precision ammunition for the military and law enforcement industries. The most advanced processes are applied at the enterprise’s operations in Switzerland, Germany, USA, Sweden and Hungary.

Our goal is to produce high-precision ammunition with the best performance. Our product range includes:

  • Various ammunition for small arms
  • Non-standard ammunition
  • Hand grenades
  • Mortar and artillery training systems
  • Disposal of ammunition

Our main customers are international armed and Special Forces, including Nato forces, Swiss and German armed forces and other customers around the world. One of our specialities is the development and production of lead-free ammunition. We have a non-toxic and lead-free solid bullet with the absolutely reliable Sintox priming technology.

This technology is, for example, applied in the 9×19 LF FMJ SXF (+P) (Lead-Free, Full Metal Jacket, SINTOX-FORENSIS, Higher Pressure) and enables forensic analysis. We are also developing lead-free bullets for rifles.

The most advanced processes are applied at the enterprise's operations in Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, USA and Sweden to produce high-grade products.
SWISS P: The sniper's choice. Exceptional precision, highest penetration force and, thanks to the underlying family concept, no adjustment is required in case of a change of cartridge.
The fragmentation hand grenade has been chosen by a Nato armed force as the best performing in the world.
Mortar training system: Provides a realistic training experience for the entire mortar team, using existing service equipment.

The hand grenades are chosen by the British Armed Forces as the best performing hand grenade in the world and they are also in use by the Dutch, Swiss and other Armed Forces. Our range of fragmentation ammunitions includes:

  • Fragmentation hand grenade
  • Offensive hand grenade (OHG 85), short range offensive hand grenade (SR OHG 85)
  • Explosive practice hand grenade and the relevant training tools

Mortar and artillery sub-calibre training systems

The sub-calibre mortar training system MT 25mm, is an effective tool to save costs and to provide high-quality training in small areas. The system consists of an aluminium-alloy body and is available for mortars in caliber 60mm, 81mm and 120mm.

As a result of an improvement program, we can now offer the new training cartridge 14.5mm, with an electronically fused spotting round for artillery training systems, e.g. for a howitzer. The standard 14.5mm training cartridges with impact fuse and pyrotechnic time fuse are still available.
