The German government has asked Rheinmetall to deliver 20 additional Marder infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) to the Ukraine.

The order was placed in March 2024 and has a value in the mid double-digit million Euro range. The delivery of this new lot is scheduled within 2024.

The version of the 1A3 Marder that has now been ordered also features integrated laser range finders.

The company supplied the first 20 of these combat vehicles to the Ukraine on behalf of the German government in March 2023. So far, Rheinmetall has already handed over a three-digit number of Marder IFVs to the Ukrainian Armed Forces via direct deliveries and circular exchange programmes.

Rheinmetall acquired the overhauled 1A3 Marder IFV from the Bundeswehr. The company began overhauling the IFVs for immediate deployment at its own expense back in spring 2022. The corresponding work has since been underway at Rheinmetall's locations in Unterluess and Kassel.
