GM Defense Delco Systems' IFV-35 turret system is a complete two-man turret system for tracked and wheeled infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs).
Evolved from the combat-proven Delco LAV-25 turret system, the IFV-35 turret puts well-proven modern fighting capability into today's infantry fighting vehicles.
GM Defense has long been a world leading supplier of infantry fighting vehicle turret systems. The combat-proven LAV-25 turret system experience enabled GM Defense to produce this next generation highly armored 35mm turret system. The IFV-35 turret system is an advanced heavy armor turret system designed for ground and helicopter engagements while providing the crew with maximum protection. Subsystem commonality was achieved by using existing production hardware; dual axis stabilized sight, laser range finder, second generation thermal sight, Bushmaster III 35mm cannon.
The IFV-35 turret system is easy to operate and highly reliable. The system integrates turret drive and controls, sights, and weapons for fire-on-the-move capability. Both commander and gunner have ready access to all turret functions.
The main weapon of the IFV-35 turret is a chain-fed 35mm cannon. The secondary weapon is a 7.62mm machine gun or customer-specified weapon, aimed coaxially with cannon. Pintle-mounted weapon options include a 7.62mm or customer-specified machine gun.
Available sights include high-quality direct view optics, image intensifiers, and second and third generation thermal imagers. Sights and weapons are stabilized providing for fire-on-the-move capability with very high accuracy. Fire control options include a displaced reticle, director, or director with auto-tracker. Periscopes provide additional situation awareness.
