Range of Turrets Aimed at Different Regional Markets
John Cockerill is highlighting a mock-up of the Cockerill 1030 unmanned turret at FIDAE 2022 this week.
The Belgian firm is showcasing the new, compact, lightweight, modular and configurable turret that combines significant firepower (a 30x173mm cannon) with open architecture digital technology and takes the requirements of high mobility into account. With over 600 30mm turrets in service, Cockerill’s extensive experience has been distilled into this lightweight, effective and affordable turret, which uses a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun and can also mount anti-tank weapons.
The several variants of the Cockerill 1030 mean it can be deployed in various environments, such as desert, urban, and amphibious, making use of a composite shell and an innovative robotic solution. Protection is to STANAG 4569 level 4.
Answering all requirements for medium calibre firepower within a future-proof design, the Cockerill 1030 is targeted on Europe and the Middle East specifically. For Latin American users at FIDAE, the company is showcasing the Cockerill 3000 series, which offers armament options of 25, 30, 30/40, 35 and 50mm medium calibre or 90 and 105mm direct fire weapons, as well as ATGM. The principal focus for Latin America at FIDAE is the 3105, mounting the Cockerill 105mm HP gun. Suitable for tracked or wheeled chassis, the 3105 requires a crew of two and is protected up to STANAG 4569 level 5.
