At Eurosatory 2016 and for the first time in Europe, CMI Defence is presenting two variations of its latest up to the minute technological innovation: the modular Cockerill® 3000 Series in the form of the Cockerill® 3030 and Cockerill® 3105.
Based on an unprecedented modular concept, the Cockerill® 3000 Series is a single platform enabling a turret to accommodate guns of different calibres and the corresponding technological modules: automatic 25 mm, 30 mm, 30/40 mm, 35 mm and 50 mm calibre guns, along with direct fire guns of 90 and 105 mm calibre. These systems can also fire missiles.
Thanks to their unique operational capabilities, to the rapid inter-changeability both of their crews and their arms, and to their high degree of common design, these modular turrets of the Cockerill® 3000 Series can cover all types of missions and objectives on the battle field (combat tank, bunker and helicopter engagement, urban combat, intervention in combats known as asymmetric…) at reduced overall operational costs. These systems benefit in particular from the simulation solutions of CMI Defence supplied under the Agueris brand. These enable training and practice on both virtual immersive cockpits and embedded simulators.
Jean-Luc Maurange, President of CMI Defence: “With the Cockerill® 3000 Series and the innovative modular turret concept, CMI Defence stands apart from the competition. We are confirming our position of leader in the turret domain, by proposing a weapons system at the cutting edge of technology, which combines polyvalence with robustness. The Cockerill® 3000 Series and its high level of performance in the domain of direct firing are, in addition, already meeting with substantial success: a very high number of them are currently in the process of production in our installations in Belgium and France”.
