27
Israeli wheeled armored personnel carrier "Eitan" and tracked armored personnel carrier "Namer" will soon receive a combat module. According to the bmpd blog, citing oleggranovsky, the directorate tank Merkava and BTT at the Israeli Ministry of Defense completed the development of an uninhabited cannon-armed turret.


Israeli armored personnel carriers "Eitan" and "Namer" will receive a new uninhabited combat module


Israeli armored personnel carriers "Eitan" and "Namer" will receive an uninhabited turret with cannon armament, called "Zrikhon" ("Turret"). This combat module is armed with an 30-mm cannon, coaxial 7,62 mm machine gun and the Gil anti-tank system (Spike LR II). According to the developers, all the weapons of the module have particularly high elevation angles, which will allow shelling targets located on the upper floors of buildings.

It is noted that with the adoption of this combat module, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) receive for their infantry a powerful means of fire support, capable of hitting targets not only from a place, but also in movement.

The Ministry of Defense of Israel explained that the new tower will be installed on the new wheeled armored personnel carriers "Eitan", the tests of which are already being completed and it is planned to start mass production. In addition, the module will be installed on the heavy Nemer APC, which is already being supplied to the IDF. The new Tsrikhon tower will be equipped with part of the armored personnel carriers armed with the regular infantry brigades Golani and Givati, and some will remain with the mounted Katlanit turret with an 12.7-mm machine gun.

As noted by the IDF, the modernization of already in service with the BTR "Namer" will not take much time. The new tower "Zrikhon" is designed so that its installation on an already launched armored personnel carrier takes only one day of work.

        In addition to its own armor promising BTR will be able to use other means of protection. Thus, according to the statements of the Israeli military, in the future a new version of the Trophy active protection complex should be created. This protection system is planned to be installed on new armored vehicles, including on Eitan vehicles. Whether the armored personnel carrier will be able to receive mounted modules for additional reservations is not yet specified.

          The photo shows that the sections on board are arranged, similar to dynamic protection.

        Long time ago already read somewhere or watched. The creators of the Concorde and Tu-144 secretly exchanged information. Because they really did not want a US competitor.

    Interestingly, the Israelis will be able to master 30 mm shells with remote detonation? winked otherwise it makes sense to sculpt a tower with a 30 mm cannon what?

      Yes, they’ll master it, you don’t have to go to the grandmother, because the KAZs there are more complicated and actively promote outside the country.
      Here are just 30, a strange choice, there are simply promising telescopes 40

      In this case, the Mk 44 Bushmaster II cannon can use a shell with a programmable fuse Mk 310.

      Not. There is a windbreaker on Merkava, and Iron Fist on Eitan.

        KAZ cover, as in Merkava?
        This is not a cover, but a radar from the "Rada" company. And they seem to be the same in both KAZs.

          If they are the same, then this is a good example of unification in action, and a good indicator of the quality of the radar.
          The radar is not a door handle, if there are flaws, then no one will repeat expensive mistakes.

        Clear. Actually, under KAZ I didn’t mean the launchers themselves, but the abbreviation, the whole complex of active protection. The fact that this is the cover of the radar, and not the launcher, is signed in English. I wanted to know the same detail, the same radar; just not exactly put it.

    "It is noted that with the adoption of this combat module, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) receives a powerful fire support for its infantry, capable of hitting targets not only from the spot, but also on the move."
    What is the difference between such an armored personnel carrier and a BMP?

      In nothing, the line between the armored personnel carrier and the infantry fighting vehicle has always been conditional.
      Often, the same vehicles with the same weapons were called infantry fighting vehicles in some armies, and in other armored personnel carriers.

      It is known what matters "not how they vote, but how they think." smile
      If you count by "turrets", then with a turret - an infantry fighting vehicle, and without a turret - an armored personnel carrier.
      If they consider using the airborne squad, then with a turret - a firing armored personnel carrier, and without a turret - not firing an armored personnel carrier.
