The COCKERILL Mk3-MA1 90mm gun is either sold independently or incorporated in the CSE 90 turret, a two-man turret of classical architecture especially developed for it. The CSE90 equipment can be precisely tailored according to the user's requirements and budgetary constraints with Electro-mechanical power drives, day/night gunner and commander sights associated to a laser range finder and ballistic computer. To increase the self-protection of the vehicle, the CSE90 turret can be armed in option with coaxial or pintle-mounted machine gun 7.62 mm. More than 2,500 of this low pressure guns are in operation all around the world on various vehicles including ALVIS Scorpion, TEXTRON/CADILLAC GAGE V-150 and V-300, AV-TECHNOLOGY Dragoon, ENGESA Cascavel and Urutus, etc.

Production and usage
The turret was installed on all the CMI 162 SIBMAS Armoured Fire Support Vehicles (AFSV-90) bought by the Malaysian Army in the early eighties. CMI is no longer involved in the design, development or production of armoured vehicles.CSE90 weapon system 90 mm turret armoured armored cockerill gun vehicle design development production manufacturer Belgium Belgian industry CMI Defence
For trials the CSE90 turret has also been installed on the BAE Systems Land Systems Valkyr (4 × 4), BAE Systems Land Systems Warrior, Steyr-Daimler-Puch Pandur (6 × 6) and an M113A2 APC. Early in 1985, CMI Defence purchased an M113A1-B APC from Belgian Mechanical Fabrication (BMF), which was subsequently fitted with the CSE90 turret and demonstrated as a fire support vehicle. In this version the vehicle can still carry 10 fully equipped infantry plus its crew of three, the commander, gunner and driver. To enable the vehicle to remain amphibious, flotation panels have been attached to the hull sides. As far as is known, the only production application for the CSE90 turret is the SIBMAS vehicle. In June 2010, CMI Defence has announced a new contract for the supply of 22 CSE90 Weapon System to the Indonesian Department of Defence. These turret systems will equip the new Doosan 6x6 “Tarantula” (as also known as Black Fox) vehicle. At IndoDefence 2010, the Indonesian Defence Company PT Pindad has showed a version of its Anoa-2 6x6 armoured vehicle equipped with a CMI Defence CSE90 turret weapon system.

Design and Protection
The CMI Defence CSE90 turret incorporates a gunner's day sight as standard. The commander has five observation periscopes and the gunner has four. Optional equipment includes commander's cupola with vision periscopes for improved all-round observation, and various types of sights for the commander and gunner including day, image intensifier, thermal sight, laser range-finder and ballistic computer. Various thermal sights have been evaluated on the turret. The CSE90 turret provides a basic protection against small arms firing 7.62mm NATO caliber STANAG 4569 Level 1 and to maximum STANAG 4569 Level 5 with ballistic protection against 25mm APDS-T (M791) or TLB 073 ammunitions at 500 meters with 1258 m/s. The CSE90 is powered by a electro-mechanical control system allowing fast and precise turret and gun movements.
