ANDERS light expeditionary tank with RUAG smoothbore gun 120mm
ANDERS is a new concept of a multirole tracked platform. At MSPO 2010
(Defence Exhibition in Poland) , the Polish Company OBRUIM ( a subdivision
of Polish Company BUMAR) unveils a new concept of light tank under the
name of "ANDERS". Basically, the ANDERS Multirole Tracked
Platform ANDERS was designed to replace the BMP-1
armoured infantry vehicles of Polish Army with versatile combat vehicles,
based on uniform base chassis. Due to high unification of vehicles,
it is possible to reduce expenses, technical and logistic problems that
could occur during usage of vehicle. The hull of multirole platform
ANDERS may be of standard length (6 pair of road wheels) or elongated
one (7 pairs of road wheels), adapted to carry equipment of larger dimensions,
heavy armament and numerous crew. Combat weight of the vehicle is in
range from about 30 up to 45 ton, being dependent on armament and special
outfit weight as well as on required protection level. At MSPO 2010
the ANDERS was armed with a smoothbore tank gun of 120 mm designed and
developped by the Swiss Company RUAG and named ANDERS Light Expeditionary
Tank. The development of the ANDERS began in 2008 and the At the present,
light tanks fulfill the role of Combat Support Vehicles, thus supplementing
the family of universal platforms and may act in the units using one
type of chassis. Expeditionary Tank ANDERS is also inscribed into this
trend, mounted on a standard chassis of ANDERS Multirole Tracked Platform.
Due to this fact, it has an opportunity to support directly other combat
versions of this tracked platform, preserving the same logistics of
chassis (overhauls, repairs, replacement of parts). Light expeditionary
tank is provided to conduct combat actions as support for operation
of infantry fighting vehicle, especially within the scope of expeditionary
operations. Strong armament in form of gun 120 mm imposes to the vehicle
high combat capabilities, comparable with modern main battle tanks.
Firing from tank guided or homing guidance rocket ammunition shall also
be possible in future.
