Description

The LCTS90 Weapon System is equipped with the Mk8 90 mm Cockerill gun. The COCKERILL Mk8 is a medium pressure 48.5 cal 90mm gun designed for vehicles of the 10 to 20 ton class. Firing high efficiency ammunition, it offers performances very close to the 105mm guns fitted on heavier vehicles. The LCTS90 Weapon System is a light and compact turret, with low recoil. This turret fits most light armored vehicles available on the market, tracked or wheeled. Thanks to the powerful Cockerill Mk8 90 mm gun, it gives them similar anti-tank capabilities as heavier tanks using 105 mm weapons without penalizing their mobility or transportability.

Production and usage
The LCTS90 turret system has been produced for four countries. Late in 1996, the Kuwait National Guard ordered 70 Pandur (6 × 6) vehicles from AV Technology International of the United States in six versions, including one armed with the LCTS90 turret system. LCTS90  weapon system 90 mm turret armoured armored cockerill gun vehicle design development production manufacturer Belgium Belgian industry CMI DefenceQatar ordered 36 Piranha (8 × 8) vehicles, with final deliveries made in late 1998. Production was undertaken by the now BAE Systems Land Systems of the UK which manufactures the Piranha under license from MOWAG. The third country is Saudi Arabia, with a contract placed in late 1999 for 130 Light Armoured Vehicle-Assault Guns (LAV-AG) being placed with the now General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada on behalf of the Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG). In January 2006 Belgium selected the MOWAG Piranha IIIC 8 × 8 to meet its Armoured Infantry Vehicle (AIV requirement). The direct fire variant of the AIV program was fulfilled by the MOWAG Piranha IIIC 8 × 8 mounted with a LCTS90 turret. An initial order of 18 turrets has been placed with options on two supplementary orders of 15 and 7 turrets.
Accessories
The turret LCTS90 is equipped with a stabilised day/thermal imaging sight and ballistic computer with a video display for the gunner. The commander has a gyro-stabilized panoramic sight with target designation capability (allowing various uses such as armament firing, 360° observation, and automatic realignment to line of fire and target designation to gunner). The LCTS90 turret can carried a total of 37 rounds of 90 mm, 20 x 90 mm rounds stowed in the turret among which 17 are stowed in the turret bustle for an easy and fast gun loading. For his self-protection, smoke grenades launchers of 66 mm, 76 mm or 80 mm can be fitted to each side of the turret to create smoke screen or close defense. In option, the LCTS90 can be equipped with laser warning device who inform the crew in case the vehicle is targeted by a laser. The device may be connected to the grenade launchers in order to automatically launch a smoke screen in the direction of the incoming laser beam.
