The in-service Cockerill LCTS 90MP turret incorporates a powerful Cockerill 90mm gun with an advanced autoloader to deliver high lethality at a very light weight. Compatible with a wide range of lighter wheeled and tracked vehicles, the Cockerill LCTS 90MP uses an advanced weapon control system to deliver highly mobile, highly effective, fires.
Swift - Strong - Effective
The Cockerill 90mm medium pressure gun is the most powerful 90 mm gun ever fielded on vehicles in the 10 to 20 tonne GVW class. Rifled for accuracy, the weapon is designed to impart a very low recoil force in order to maintain the stability and safety of even lighter firing platforms. The gun provides a very effective anti-armour capability combined with a general-purpose capability based on HE ammunition. Using the latter nature, the system can undertake indirect firing to a range of almost 8 km. The main gun is employed using a high performance, digital, fully-stabilised, day/night weapon control system. Turret weight is kept low through the use of a bustle-mounted autoloader, which permits a two-person crew. This low weight permits the Cockerill LCTS 90MP turret to be fully effective when fitted to vehicles as light as the Pandur 6x6 AFV.
The Cockerill LCTS 90MP turret delivers effective organic fire-support to lighter armoured forces. Applicable to both tracked and wheeled vehicles, the system permits precise direct and indirect engagements when moving, by day and by night. Organic fire-support vehicles are an essential component of the modern high-mobility force.
