The Sabrah Light Tank turret is the latest generation of two-man/optionally unmanned turret featuring an automatic loader, advanced sights, the Iron Vision Head Mounted Display and the Iron Fist Active Protection System.

The Sabrah turret design benefits from the reference of Elbit Systems and the Israeli Army Merkava directorate "Mantak" combat-proven armored vehicles. The turrets, Fire Control Systems (FCS), electro-optics and 105mlm tank guns are in use by the Israeli army as well as numerous other armed forces around the world.

The Sabrah light tank configuration is based on the tracked ASCOD AFV platform, which is manufactured by General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS), a part of aerospace and defense company General Dynamics.

Weighing 30t, the Sabrah light tank series has a modular design. It is equipped with a common 105mm manned turret for both tracked and wheeled configurations. The turret of the Sabrah is fitted with an automatic loading system with a manual backup loading. The tank has 12 ready-to-use ammunition rounds located in the autoloader drum and an additional 24 stored in the hull.

The vehicle’s fully-electric turret drive provides stabilization in both elevation and traverse. The dual-axis high-performance turret provides hunter-killer capability. The tank provides an optimal combination of firepower and maneuverability. It can be configured to provide enhanced lethality.
