MADRID -- General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) will present four new offerings at the EUROSATORY Defense & Security International Exhibition 2018, between June 11th and June 15th in Paris, in Hall 5A – Stand No. E839.
The company will showcase new variants of the ASCOD family of tracked vehicles:
Both ASCOD vehicles have been developed using General Dynamics European Land Systems’ new “Common Base Platform Design” (CBP) with modular capability and open vehicle architecture with three power-pack solutions between 530, 600 and 800kW, either steel tracks or rubber bands and multiple configurations up to the crew of three plus 8 dismounts. The advanced CBP design ensures all ASCOD variants are on one common platform for a reduced logistics footprint. This also facilitates cross-national vehicle manufacturing and operational interoperability between different military users in response to the political vision to foster defence cooperation across Europe.
A new version of the PANDUR 6X6 will be on display:
General Dynamics European Land Systems will introduce the PANDUR 6x6 EVO, the new version of its proven PANDUR vehicle family. With a GVW up to 18.5 tons, the PANDUR 6X6 EVO in its Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) configuration has been selected by the Austrian Army. Due to its new innovative hull design, driveline technology, and power-pack, the compact 6x6 vehicle provides a significantly increased level of protection, payload, and mobility while accomodating a crew of 11 soldiers (3+8). The PANDUR 6x6 EVO is fitted with a 12.7mm Remote Controlled Weapon Station.
A new medium mechanized bridge system:
The new Variable Folding Bridge (VFB) is a flexible and modern bridge system, which can be temporarily or permanently fitted on various medium-weight wheeled and tracked armored vehicles. With the Bridge Launching Mechanism (BLM) by Pearson Engineering, the Variable Folding Bridge can be attached to the vehicle via a standard Pearson Engineering Jettison Fitting Kit. The VFB on display will be mounted on a standard 8x8 wheeled armoured vehicle PIRANHA 3 and has a length of 15 meters with a load capacity of MLC50.
In cooperation with General Dynamics Mission Systems, GDELS will display an EAGLE 6x6 Command Post fitted with various network capabilities like Satellite on the Move (SOTM) and Battlefield Management System (BMS). It emphasizes General Dynamics’ advanced system capabilities and track record in the area of Digitized Land Base Operations (D-LBO).
