Leopard 2 MBT upgrade solution at IDEF 2015
 
 
Aselsan offers a new main battle tank upgrade solution to increase protection and fire power.
Turkish Defense Company Aselsan has developed a new upgrade solution for Main Battle Tank (MBT) to increase the lifetime of Leopard 2 main battle tanks. Next Generation Light/Medium main battle tank solution is an all-in-one upgrade package based on fully digital electronic turret infrastructure supported by maximum operational availability perspective.

Next Generation Light/Medium main battle tank solution is an all-in-one upgrade package based on fully digital electronic turret infrastructure supported by maximum operational availability perspective. Leopard 2 MBT (Main Battle tank) fitted with Aselsan upgrade solution at IDEF 2015, International Defense Industry Fair in Istanbul, Turkey.
     
The combination of extremely effective and flexible lethality options with outstanding strategic and tactical operational performance spreads the next generation light / medium main battle tank upgrade solution to the top position among the rivals. Thanks to the compact and light-weight structure of the upgrade solution, the mobility and inertia of the light / medium MBT is retained along with amplified MBT performance.

ASELSAN replaced all of the electronic, electro-optical, electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic systems of the Leopard 2A4 MBTs with newly developed state of the art systems. With this methodology, since all of the obsolete parts are changed with the new ones, spare part problem is solved. By this way, the life cycle of the Leopard 2 A4s increases at leat 25 more years. Moreover, Life Cycle Cost reduces to incomparable levels to any Main Battle Tank has. ASELSAN MBT systems are based on today’s modern technology, so in the serial production phase, they will be the most up-to-date systems developed, tested and deployed on Leopard 2 MBTs. This will guaranty the utmost life cycle and the minimum Life Cycle Cost as possible.

The Leopard 2 upgrade solution is fitted with Next Generation of Fire Control System
     
Fire power of the Leopard 2 is increased to a level which none of the modern MBTs have, with Next Generation Fire Control System, Electrical Gun and Turret Drives and Remote Weapon Station.

Leopard 2 NG is equipped with ASELSAN’s Next Generation Fire Control System which is based on two independent periscopes - one for gunner and the other for commander - each can perform all tank fire control functions, and also can take over each other’s fire control functions. Electro-optical periscopes with superior image quality thermal imagers managed by the gunner and the commander provide both gunner and commander accurate target engagement in day, night and severe weather conditions. In case of a failure of one of two periscope systems, the tank shall be operational in the battlefield with full performance, a feature that is beyond the capability of the current fire control systems. The fire control functions, ballistic calculations, stabilization algorithms and all other computations are performed by both Gunner’s and Commander’s Periscope’s. Thanks to automated system functions and unique simplified user interface both for gunner and commander, training for Leopard 2 NG is further simplified significantly when compared to Leopard 2A4

Next Generation Light/Medium main battle tank solution is an all-in-one upgrade package based on fully digital electronic turret infrastructure supported by maximum operational availability perspective. The Leopard 2 upgrade solution is equipped with Remotely operated stabilized Weapon Station armed with 12,7mm machine gun
     
Leopard 2 NG is equipped with a Remotely operated stabilized Weapon Station (RWS) that enables the tank to defend itself against air and ground attacks and also can be used in urban areas against asymmetric warfare. Depending on warfare requirements, 12.7 mm Heavy Machine Gun, 40mm Automatic Grenade Launcher or 7.62mm Light Machine Gun can be interchangeably installed.

RWS is fully integrated with FCS (Fire Control System) and all the controls are accomplished by the commander by his own FCS user interface. In addition, the RWS can also be controlled by the loader using his own user interface and by RWS’s own thermal sight.

Add-on armour is one the main component of the Leopard 2 upgrade solution.
     
To provide the demanded survivability of today’s battlefield, Leopard 2 NG’s ballistic protection is increased with add-on armor modules with a combination of several systems providing protection against different threats. The enhanced protection is provided by turret and hull add-on modules, roof protection, heavy track skirts, SLAT armor and the spall liner.

Ceramic faced armor modules including composites and light alloys enable the protection system to absorb and minimize the impact effect of attacking today’s projectiles such as KEs, ATGMs and RPGs. With turret and hull inside liner, the potential spall effects are drastically reduced, and with roof protection the protection against bomblet threats is improved. Hull belly protection modules as well as the hull inside structural modifications and suspended drivers seat protects tank crew against light and heavy mines, while IED protection provides protection against different IEDs.
