Rheinmetall recently tested its Mission Master Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle, equipped with Thales’ laser-guided FZ275 rockets as part of a live-fire exercise in Sweden.

The live-fire exercise at the Swedish procurement agency Försvarets Materielverk’s (FMV) Trängslet base was attended by delegations from Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands and Poland.

The autonomous-UGV was developed by Rheinmetall Canada.

The model was fitted with Rheinmetall’s Fieldranger Multi remotely controlled weapon station with two seven-tube 70mm rockets from Thales Belgium, with the test marking the successful qualification of both systems that were previously limited to aircraft.

It is expected that the configuration is ready for integration into additional platforms.

As part of the live fire, the autonomous-UGV fired the FZ275 70mm laser-guided rockets from Thales at a vehicle 4 kilometres away.

According to Rheinmetall, the Thales guided rocket system “is the lightest and longest range 70mm/2.75-inch LGR in its class”.

The systems can be further equipped with the 12.7mm calibre machine gun, Dillon Aero M13D or 40mm grenade launchers.

The live fire was digitised via the use of a tablet and Rheinmetall C2 software.
