The SANDF considers Denel PMPs product lines to be of sovereign importance to its requirements. Besides Denel PMPs full range of small-calibre (5,56 mm to 12,7 mm) and medium-calibre ammunition (20 mm to 35 mm) used on navy vessels, helicopters, fighter aircraft and anti-aircraft cannons, as well as infantry fighting vehicles, Denel PMP also produces high quality percussion caps of all types, as well as links for various small- and medium-calibre rounds.

Denel PMP has completed the development of a family of 30 mm x 173 medium-calibre rounds for use in new generation infantry fighting vehicles, specifically for the Hoefyster project of the SANDF.
