Rheinmetall from Germany unveils new 130mm/L51 gun to counter to new modern combat vehicles

Prompted by initial considerations for a future MBT, Rheinmetall's Weapons and Ammunition division launched a company-financed 130mm demonstrator programme last year to confirm the anticipated significant increase in performance against modern threats.
