Elbit Systems will showcase its latest autonomous Recoil Mortar System (RMS) for lightweight 4x4 combat vehicles at the 3rd International Fire Conference, held May 10-22, 2014, at ”Home of the Gunners” in Zikron Ya’akov, Israel.
Soltam SPEAR autonomous Recoil Mortar System (RMS) for lightweight 4x4 combat vehicle
Introducing a revolutionary technology, the advanced 2nd generation RMS reduces 120mm gun barrel firing recoil loads from 30 to less than 10 tons, enabling adaptability with previously non-installable Light Combat Vehicles (LCVs), such as (Humvees), jeeps and more. This capability significantly improves the maneuverability and operational performance of infantry forces, as it delivers immediate indirect artillery support for effectively engaging a wide range of targets.
SOLTAM SPEAR's lightweight, modular design enables high-speed, all-terrain vehicle mobility, as well as helicopter and cargo aircraft transportability - allowing rapid deployment in both close range and Special Forces counterinsurgency operations.
Yehuda (Udi) Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land and C4I, noted: Elbit Systems is a world leader in the field of mortar systems, and the CARDOM mortar is already in use by the IDF and other leading armed forces around the world.
The SPEAR provides our customers with a broader range of capabilities and further establishes our leading position in this field. SPEAR addresses the operational demand for agile, accurate and precise mobile fire power, which enables operation deep within combat zones and the deployment of Special Forces. The full integration of SPEAR into Elbit Systems’ C4I systems allows rapid closure of sensor-to-shooter loops and enhanced operational effectiveness for ground forces”.
