Eurosatory 2018

Re-roled on command [ES18D5]

15 June 2018

Rheinmetall Defence (External Pe6B, Stand C021) has rapidly converted its latest KF41 Lynx infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) into a command post vehicle. This has a raised roof line to provide greater internal volume for its specialist battlefield mission.

On the roof is fitted the latest Fieldranger remote-controlled weapon station armed with an integrated externally driven RMG.50 Rheinmetall machine gun (MG).

On Tuesday this week, Rheinmetall launched the KF41 in the IFV configuration, fitted with a turret armed with a 35mm cannon, a 7.62mm coaxial MG, a roof-mounted 12.7mm remote controlled weapon system, and a pod of two anti-tank guided weapons (ATGWs) integrated into each side of the turret.
