CMI Defence Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System (105 mm)
 
 
 
 
Description
The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP turret incorporates a Cockerill 105mm high-pressure gun with an advanced autoloader to yield high lethality at very light weight. The system provides exceptionally flexible organic fire-support to high-mobility formations.

.The CT-CV turret has been subjected to a rapid development program in parallel with a series of tests and trials in Switzerland and the UK throughout 2004 and 2005. To meet the present and future requirements of modern armed forces for powerful weapons, CMI Defence introduced the Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System (gun and turret). The two-man turret and gun have been completely developed in-house by CMI using its long experience. The system is compatible with all current NATO 105mm ammunition but the barrel has been designed to be able to fire ammunition with higher pressure as well as smart ammunition and guided missiles. The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System is a fully stabilized turret allowing firing on the move and at moving targets.

The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP is definitely the most advanced and innovative system available today to serve the needs of modern armed forces. This turret is specifically designed for air-transportable light armored vehicles. CMI-Defence presents at Eurosatory 2010 the Falarick 105, the new anti-tank guided missile launched from the Cockerill CV gun. It’s in Scotland that CMI has demonstrated the effectiveness and accuracy of the Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System gun launched missile which provides a High anti-tank lethality at extended ranges and confirms the positioning of this turret system as an advanced 105 mm, the benchmark in large calibre weapon systems.

The combined mobility, lethality, engagement envelope and operational flexibility of the Cockerill CT-CV 105HP weapon system is unrivalled.

Description
The 105 mm CV rifled gun is fitted with a single-stage muzzle brake, thermal sleeve and fume extractor. To reduce recoil forces below 150 kN, the barrel is fitted with a highly efficient muzzle brake and two parallel recoil brakes. The barrel is of Electro-Slag Refined (ESR) steel and has a 20 per cent supplementary pressure margin for future growth potential. It is fitted with a semi-automatic vertical sliding breech mechanism and an electrical ignition mechanism. The 105 mm CV rifled gun can fire all NATO standard ammunition to defeat armour, troops, weapon emplacements, bunkers, fortified structures, buildings and similar. In developing the weapon other ammunition related developments have been taken into account, including smart ammunition and guided munitions. Particular attention has been paid to safety and comfort of the crew. The crew is seated low in the turret to take advantage of the vehicle hull protection. For safety reasons too, the crew and ammunition compartments are independent and separated by a firewall; in addition, crew protection is ensured thanks to a safety fuse plate above the ammunition rack. The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP turret is equipped with a full autoloader ammunition rack, with a capacity of 12 ready rounds in lightweight configuration, and 15 ready rounds in standard configuration (additional rounds will be stowed in the vehicle allowing reloading under armor). After tests in Scotland during year 2010, the Weapon System Cockerill CT-CV 105HP can firing now the anti-tank missile Falarick 105 from the Cockerill 105 mm CV gun. With its laser beam guidance system, the Falarick 105 is able to wipe out fixed & moving armoured targets, helicopters and fortifications at a distance of 10 kilometres in indirect engagement thanks to its +42° gun elevation. Its tandem hollow-charged warhead allows it to destroy targets under 550 mm of armour and behind ERA or their equivalent.
Production and usage
The CMI Defence Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System was shown for the first time in 2004. For trials purposes it has already been installed on a Swiss MOWAG Piranha III (8 × 8), Patria Vehicles Armoured Modular Vehicle (8 × 8) and Steyr-Daimler-Puch Pandur (8 × 8) chassis. Textron Marine & Land Systems of the US has a license to undertake marketing and production of this turret for the North American market. As of April 2008, there were no sales of this turret system. The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP is a fully compatible for air-transportable armored vehicles with C-130 airplane. The Turret is only 4,000 kg in lightweight configuration and in transportation conditions (no add-on armor, no ammunition) allowing a complete vehicle weight below 17,250 kg. The system is ready to fire immediately upon leaving the aircraft and is capable of panoramic observation after 15 minutes. The complete system can be prepared in about 4 hours, including the installation of a pintle-mount or RWS and the fitting of add-on armor.
Accessories
The Cockerill CT-CV 105HP Weapon System Turret is equipped with an automatic loader which contains 16 rounds in standard configuration and 12 rounds in air-deployable configuration. The sighting system for both the gunner and the commander consists in two identical displays, one for day vision and the other one for night vision. A panoramic sight gives the commander observation and hunter killer capabilities. Back up devices are foreseen to allow continued use of the turret in case of loss of electrical power supply. One of most striking features of this new system resides in its BLOS (Beyond Line of Sight) firing capabilities thanks to a +42° gun elevation, adapted to urban and mountainous warfare conditions as well as allowing firing against airborne targets.
