Description

The Avenger AN/TWQ-1 Air Defense System vehicle is a missile mounted system which provides mobile, short-range air defense protection for ground units against cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, low-flying fixed-wing aircraft, and helicopters. In the early 1980s, the then Defence Systems Division of the Boeing Aerospace Company (now The Boeing Company) developed the Avenger air defence system as a private venture. The Avenger Air Defence System, built by Boeing, forms an important element in the US Army's Forward Area Air Defense (FAAD) architecture, which includes C2I, radars, platforms and missiles. The first production contract for 325 units was awarded in 1987. The gyro-stabilised Avenger turret with Stinger missiles is mounted on a 4x4 HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle), but can also operate in a standalone configuration or mounted on a variety of military vehicles. More than 1,100 Avengers have been produced and delivered to U.S. Army, Army National Guard and foreign customers. The Avenger system can be installed on other types of chassis, tracked and wheeled, and is also fully air-transportable.

Technical Data

Armament
The electric turret drive is the same as that used on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle and is manufactured by General Dynamics, Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Avenger carries eight Raytheon Stinger short range air defense missiles in two launch pods mounted either side of the turret. The turret can also be deployed as a fixed stand-alone unit. The baseline configuration consists of a gunner’s turret with missile pods mounted on each side. Each missile pod, called the standard vehicle-mounted launcher, can hold four missiles that can be removed and fired in the MANPAD employment configuration. The AVENGER is operated by a two-man crew. . Avenger is equipped with a .50 calibre M3P automatic machine gun to cover the missile dead zone and engage ground targets
Vehicle
The Avenger air defence missile system is mounted on light wheeled vehicle HUMVEE. The driver is seated on the left and, in addition to having all the controls required to drive and operate the HMMWV, he also has complete intercommunications with the gunner in the turret. All voice system, intercom/radio and system tones are provided.
Mobility
This HUMVEE Avenger system is powered by a liquid-cooled eight-cylinder (V-8) diesel engine. The HMMWV has full-time four-wheel drive. This means that it is always in four-wheel drive, with power being delivered to all four wheels through the two-speed locking Tranfer Gear Case. As with other tactical military vehicles, the HMMWV has a 24-volt electrical system. This vehicle has two 12-volt batteries connected in a series to provide 24-volt electrical power. The batteries are located underneath the front passenger seat. The vehicle attains a speed of 90 km per hour on hard surface roads and has a maximum recommended cross-country speed of 40 km per hour.
Accessories
To reduce life cycle and initial procurement costs, standard automotive components are used wherever possible, as in the engine, transmission, transfer case, and steering. The HUMVEE vehicle is designed to operate in water up to 0,9 m deep without any special preparation. When equipped with a deep water fording kit, the HMMWV can operate in water up to 1,8 m deep.
