      Like said, the Russians don't really target Western Ukraine and any plant as important as that is going to have AA around it anyway.

        The first big merc slaughter of the war was when training facilities almost on the border to Poland were hit by Kh-22 missiles.

            It was a center for foreign trainers. A combo of some idiots geolocating themselves via selfies, plus a couple helpful traitors confirming the target, caused a missile strike to land on the building.

                The part of the base hit was mostly instructor housing, very few foreigners were even injured. Since the base dated to Soviet times, it was targeted by the Russians using legacy map data, not via geolocation of social media posts.
                People die in war, but the risk for an engineer constructing a new plant is probably lower than any rando going to the cinema, due to the way Russian missiles are targeted and their accuracy.

        I guess they will try to start with just Fuchs. In the last decade already built out a production line in Algeria and its old simple vehicle. In fact might even just ship out the German plant entirely, concentrate on Boxer.

    Chances are, Rheinmetall will put a brutal amount of antiair and antidrone around the facility just to flex on any and all Kinzhals and other cruise missiles. The best weapon advertisement is actual demonstration on the battlefield.

            if they are building something from scratch fresh-out-of-uni may be precisely what they need several of. you'll be working under experienced engineers (mostly industrial and quality) but you'll be working very closely with them. you'll be working with millwrights, electricians, controls and automation technicians and the engineers/managers. shoot them your resume, point out that you don't have any outstanding commitments that would make you need to run home all of a sudden. then, for the love of God, drop all social media while you are there. take it off your phone and don't log in. the last thing you want is to catch a missile. because of Snapchat or PrepHole.

      It's a good way into the defense industry.

      They see that later on and they know you can handle not only crisis conditions but the work itself.

      Otherwise you'd have to compete against others wanting into the defense industry but here you can trade bravery for competitive expertise. Make no mistake though, there is a risk and you absolutely stay in safety whenever possible. Nobody will remember the brave engineer who stayed outside just before a missile strike took place.

      >Rheinmetall mercenaries

      You really think a company like this won't hire subcontractors from defense sector?

      They don't NEED Rheinmetall mercenaries, they can hire a company for their needs with big NATO money. And much like the junior engineer in above comment, the defense sector has people drooling over the option to go to Ukraine to secure a western plant in a relatively safe area.
