It provides light and high mobility vehicles and troop transport vehicles with high fire-power, increasing their capacity for firing support, self-protection and support.
Its crew can load the whole of the weapons system from the interior, thus remaining under the protection of the armor. The Cockerill® CPWS turret has a total storage capacity of 150 medium calibre munitions, depending on the type of weapon mounted. It is also equipped with a coaxial 7.62 mm machine gun and can accommodate various supplementary systems such as grenade launchers.
Firing control, 24/ hour use
The Cockerill® CPWS turret is equipped with a bi-modal stabilized high performance (thermal) day/night sight for 24 hour use. The aiming system provides the operator with panoramic 360° vision, independently of the position of the turret. Once locked onto the target, the gun automatically aligns with the aiming system. A ballistics computer guarantees the highest probability of hitting the target when firing on the move.
