Description

The 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.

 
Variants
- ANDERS 105 CT-CV turret: These version is equipped with Belgian turret CT-CV armed with a 105mm cannon from the Company CMI Defence.
- ANDERS IFV: Infantry fighting vehicle version with Italian turret Hitfist 30mm cannon.

The turret has two person crew located in suspended basket, located entirely within the body of chassis. Main armament is RUAG 120mm smoothbore gun with an automatic loader system with 12 rounds ready to use and 20 rounds of additional ammunition apart from the loader. A 7.62mm caliber coaxial machine gun UKM-2000C is mounted to the left side of the main armament and ZSMU-1276 KOBUZ remotely controlled weapon station with WKM-B 12.7mm caliber machine gun or GA-2008 40mm automatic grenade launcher. A range of five 81mm smoke grenade discharger at the rear each side of the turret.

Design and protection
The turret and the hull of the ANDERS 120mm Light Expeditionary Tank are made in all-welded steel which provide a protection against small arms firing of 7.62 mm caliber, mine blasts and kinetic threats of more than STANAG 4569 level III. The vehicle can be fitted with add-on armour modules which increase the protection against 25mm caliber ammunitions, STANAG 4569 Level V.. The chassis has the typical for infantry fighting vehicles design, arrangement with drive and control compartments located in front of the chassis, combat compartment in the middle and transport compartment in the rear part. In the rear part of vehicle is locating a hydraulically operated hatch that allows leaving the crew compartment during landing operations or loading extra ammunition packs. Transportation compartment may be used for transportation an additional ammunition pack, carrying extra soldiers, for instance operators of anti-tank missile launcher, transportation of materials that increase autonomy of vehicle operation, transportation of additional ammunition and armament of supporting infantry transportation of medical equipment and evacuation of wounded troops from the battlefield. One additional crew hatch is available at the right and left side of the turret in the hull part.
Propulsion
The ANDERS 120mm Light Expeditionary Tank is motorized with a German MTU 8v 199 turbocharged diesel engine generating 720hp (530kW) of power mounted at the front of the hull. Due to the large power engine, the vehicle shall be characterized by over and above the average mobile values, even when operating in the hardest terrain. The suspension each side consists of six road wheels with drive sprocket at the front, idler at the rear and four return rollers. The ANDERS 120mm can run at maximum road sped of 70 km/h with an approximately range of 600 km.. The ANDERS 120mm can cross gradient of about 60%, trench crossing of 2.6m and vertical obstacles of 1m.
Accessories
Standard equipment of the ANDERS 120mm includes fire control system, NBC warning system, laser warning system, fire suppression system, hybrid GPS land navigation system. The vehicle is also protected by an integrated active and reactive defence system of Ukranian Zaslon and Rafael Advanced Defense System. ANDERS 120mm Light Expeditionary Tank can be transported in cargo bay of military transport aircraft Airbus A400M or bigger transport planes.
