U.S. production

The MK281 MOD 3 40 mm High Velocity and the M1110 40 mm Low Velocity Day-Night Training Cartridges are produced at ARM’s state-of-the-art facility located in Camden, Arkansas. American Rheinmetall Munitions is currently establishing a medium caliber “flex-line” that will initially manufacture the PGU-48/B 25 mm Frangible Armor Piercing (FAP) cartridge for the USAF F-35A Joint Strike Fighter. American Rheinmetall Munitions is also establishing a 40 mm tactical airburst fuze production line that will not only provide a precision counter-defilade capability to Soldiers and Marines, but will also bring advanced manufacturing to the U.S industrial base while creating additional quality jobs.
