New infantry equipment orders: Austria opts for Rheinmetall laser light modules
In the first quarter of 2017, Austria’s Federal Ministry of the Interior ordered 580 Rheinmetall VarioRay laser light module sets for Cobra, the country’s counter-terrorism unit. Worth over €1 million, the order is now in the delivery phase.
Rheinmetall’s tried-and-tested laser light modules are a key means of enhancing the tactical effectiveness of small arms carried by soldiers and law enforcement officers, who use these versatile devices to detect, identify and mark targets. They feature various light sources, e.g. white light, visible laser and infrared light. Rheinmetall laser light modules are in service with armed services and security forces around the globe, including the British Army and German Armed Forces.
