KMW testing RCH155 howitzer on Boxer chassis


The modular design of the Boxer enables one more variant: a self-propelled howitzer. KMW is testing its RCH 155mm artillery system, hence the Boxer RCH155 designation, RCH standing for Remote Control Howitzer.

The RCH 155 is a combination of automated artillery firepower and protected wheel mobility.A large stock of ammunition and quick reloading, the stable weapon platform, maximum accuracy in the target, the automated flow of ammunition, combined with autonomy in navigation and fire control make the RCH 155 a new benchmark in wheeled artillery systems.

KMW promotes various advantages of its RCH155: highest fully automated artillery efficiency, network-based system architecture with great growth potential, synthesis of the proven NATO-JBMoU 155 mm / L52 barrel weapon and the unmanned AGM on Boxer chassis results in unique artillery effectiveness up to currently 54 km range over 360° azimuth and elevation angles without the need for support.

Further developed from the "Combat of Combined Arms", the complete autonomy of the overall system in command, navigation and fire control, as well as its system-related stability, opens up completely new operational options (e.g. shooting at moving targets, camp protection, etc.). Thanks to the network-based system architecture of the RCH 155, autonomous driving and working (remote-controlled) can also be implemented in the future.

The future NATO ammunition types (JBMoU-compatible) can be taken into account in the fire control system and the ammunition matrix.
