Eurosatory 2016

Armed and ready [ES2016D5]

17 June 2016

CMI Defence (Hall 5, Stands K398/K378) is showing two members of its latest Cockerill 3000 series of modular turrets for the first time at Eurosatory.

The two-person turrets, the Cockerill 3030 and 3105, share a high level of common components to reduce through-lifecycle costs and training.

The Cockerill 3030 on display is installed on a Patria 8x8 AMV and armed with the Orbital ATK MK44 dual-feed cannon, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and banks of grenade launchers.

The 3105 shown alongside is integrated on a GDELS–MOWAG Piranha 8x8 and is armed with the CMI Defence 105mm rifled gun, which is fed by a bustle-mounted automatic loader with a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.

In addition to firing conventional 105mm ammunition, the 3105 can fire a 105mm gun-launched anti-tank guided missile out to a range of 5,000m.

The turrets are in production for an undisclosed export customer for installation on an 8x8 platform.
