13th September 2016 - 16:10 GMT | by Sam J Basch in Pretoria


Denel is pushing ahead with the development of its 105mm LEO artillery project for the South African Army and needs and industrial partner.

The company is doing this in response to a Request for Information from Armscor, South Africa’s defence procurement agency.

At the announcement last month of Denel's latest financial results, acting group chief executive Zwelakhe Ntshepe affirmed that the company was looking for a partner to co-develop the light gun.  

‘Although the LEO project was started many years ago, we have not abandoned it.  The nature of conflict demands consideration of light air-transportable artillery,’ he stated.
