KMW and Elbit Systems are collaborating in a project to develop a new multiple launch rocket system (MLRS), the future “Euro-PULS.”
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and and Elbit Systems Land was signed in June 2022.
“KMW and Elbit have established the concept ‘Euro-PULS’ for the next generation European Long Range Rocket Artillery as the successor system for the MLRS. This concept has already been offered to the first European customers,” the companies said in a joint statement today.
Background is the modernization and the capability extension of the European Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS / MARS II). Elbit provides a modern effector portfolio, to fully comply with the MLRS-User demands from extended range rockets to new training ammunition.
The Euro-PULS system is based on Elbit Systems’ operational and in-service Multi-Purpose Universal Launching System (PULS) and a range of precision guided munitions. KMW complements the Euro-PULS with decades of know-how as system house and vast experience in building and customizing (rocket) artillery systems complying European standards. This provides the capability to integrate every rocket according to User’s requirements. Both companies envision a local rocket production to ensure Europe’s independence.
This means a Future Rocket Artillery System made in Europe.
