Mammoth is veel te klein. Kleiner dan de Fennek en het voertuig zal toch wel ietsjes groeien.

If MGCS drags out, Rheinmetall pitches Concept Unmanned Turret as near-term alternative

"The experiences from recent crises and wars, in addition to the obvious postponement of the main Ground Combat System Program, creates the necessity to set up an additional medium-term solution," said Rheinmetall's Bjoern Bernhard.

Rheinmetall used the start of Eurosatory 2024 to pitch a new Concept Unmanned Turret for its Panther KF51 main battle tank.

If Europe's future Main Ground Combat System drags out too long, Germany's Rheinmetall is pitching a nearer-term option dubbed the "Concept Unmanned Turret" (CUT) for its Panther KF51 main battle tank.

"The experiences from recent crises and wars, in addition to the obvious postponement of the main Ground Combat System Program [MGCS], creates the necessity to set up an additional medium-term solution," Bjoern Bernhard, Managing Director of Rheinmetall Landsysteme, said today at the unveiling here at Eurosatory in Paris.

"We see that the MGCS is not getting ahead like it was thought to be," he later told reporters. "So, I can tell you right in the beginning, the MGCS was thought to be introduced in 2035 and with a small look on the calendar, I can tell you that is only 10 years to go for an extremely complex system."

When the turret and Panther chassis are combined, the vehicle tips the scales around the mid 50-tons range and requires three soldiers to operate. But to better protect the crew from top-down attacks like those prevalent in Ukraine, the soldiers are inside the chassis and not physically hands-on with the turret.

As for turret features, it can be outfitted with a 130mm future gun system or the company's 120mm smoothbore cannon and includes a 25-round autoloader, Rheinmetall says.

Soldiers inside will also have access to a .50 caliber coaxial machine gun, "fully digital" target engagement system and a 360-degree multi-sensor package. Rheinmetall also included the Hensoldt Muss 2.0 soft-kill active protection system for the new turret and Elbit's Iron Fist APS as the kinetic solution.

Today, Bernhard said the CUT is still in the "early" side of development, but if a customer is interested and ready to invest, the company could have it ready for the field in the early 2030s.

Als de mam
Citaat van: Harald op Vandaag om 12:34Net even zitten kijken naar afmetingen Fennek en deze vergelijken met de nieuwe Mammoth van Defenture. Deze zijn enigszins gelijk, zou misschien prima als basis kunnen dienen voor een opvolger van de Fennek
Je zou dan een Recon Mammoth kunnen ontwikkelen, Fennek II ?
en idd met RWS, APS en voorzien van de nodige INTELL middelen en drone's

Fennek :
hoogte : 2,3 meter
breedte : 2,55 meter
lengte : 5,58 meter
totaal gewicht : 10.800 kg

Als de mammoth uitgerust kan worden met betere bescherming en hybride aandrijving dan is dat een mooie oplossing.

Citaat van: Huzaar1 op Vandaag om 12:01Nee joh. Onpraktisch en niet nodig. 35mm KETF is al prima

Skyranger 35 !  ;)  :big-smile:

The latest Skyranger 35 is a development of the enduring 35mm revolver cannon developed by the Swiss Oerlikon company, one of the most widely used anti-aircraft guns. The modular design of the Skyranger 35 turret means it can be fitted with a range of different sensors to detect and engage aerial threats, with options including active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars, optronic packages, and passive radio frequency detection systems.

While capable of operating completely independently, the Skyranger 35 can be integrated with a wider air defense network via the Skymaster command and control architecture, including datalink and identification friend-or-foe (IFF) components.

The modular nature of the Skyranger 35 extends beyond the sensors, with options for other weapons, too. In addition to the baseline 35mm x 228 KDG revolver cannon, the same turret can accommodate a 30mm x 173 KCE gun, as the Skyranger 30.

In its latest application, these rapid-firing guns are provided with Oerlikon's AHEAD air-burst ammunition, which releases a cloud of sub-projectiles just ahead of a target, increasing the probability of a kill and making it better suited to tackling low, slow, and small air threats like drones, rockets, and mortar projectiles. Air-burst rounds also significantly reduce the risk of collateral damage on the ground.

According to Rheinmetall, the 35mm caliber offers a counter-rocket, artillery, and mortar, or C-RAM capability out to an effective range of 2.5 miles. The 30mm caliber has an effective range of up to 1.8 miles. To extend its range further, and tackle other types of threats, the turret is designed to also mount short-range air defense missiles, typically a twin launcher for FIM-92 Stinger or Mistral missiles. Both those missiles are already used by Ukraine.

Looking further ahead, Rheinmetall says the turret can be integrated with vertically launched missiles for the counter-precision-guided munition (C-PGM) role, while integration of a high-energy laser is also being explored.

At the Eurosatory defense exhibition taking place outside Paris this week, Rheinmetall is displaying the Skyranger 35 integrated with the Leopard 2 tank (the successor to the Leopard 1), while the Skyranger 30 is presented integrated with the Boxer 8×8 armored fighting vehicle and the Lynx KF41 tracked armored fighting vehicle.

Citaat van: Huzaar1 op Vandaag om 11:57Fennek lijkt me prima qua formaat en omvang. Wat hier al genoemd is plus capaciteit voor drones. Een RCWS+APS en je bent er.

Dan zou ik toch liever inzetten op Skyranger 35 op CV90 onderstel !

RHeinmetall heeft op Eurosatory 2024 een model staan van de Skyranger 35 op een Leopard 2 onderstel.
Ook wordt gesproken over Leopard 1 onderellen uit te voeren met de 35mm en deze tegebruiken/inzetten in Oekraïne.
