General Dynamics has formed a joint venture with a German defense and security technology firm to deliver tank ammunition in U.S. and international markets, the company announced Thursday.

Defense Munitions International LLC will develop and produce 120-millimeter ammunition for tanks.

Certain types of ammunition and practice rounds are not covered under the joint venture.

DMI will also develop advanced multi-purpose ammunition to supplement Rheinmetall“™s DM 11 cartridge, recently used by the U.S. Marine Corps. in Afghanistan.

The Army recently selected General Dynamics to provide long lead materials for M1A2S tank production and conversion under a $19 million contract issued in early March.
