|WZM highlights its well-known "Wolf" Fire Support Vehicle at MSPO 2014|
Once again, MSPO demonstrates the close relationship of the Belgian and Polish industries, thanks to WZM and its well-known "Wolf" Fire Support Vehicle which unifies the Patria AMV chassis and the CMI CT-CV 105 mm turret.
WZM "Wolf" FSV 105 mm self-propelled howitzer
The WOLF FSV is designed to provide support to other types of military units and at the same time it can independantly counter ground targets, aircrafts and ships. The combination of excellent performance of the Cockerill CT-CV 105 mm turret system with superior mobility and reliability of the Patria AMV which is proven in combat provide an effective weapon against a broad spectrum of threats on the moderne battlefield.
Elevating to +42° this weapon delivers exceptional engagement capability in complex terrain, an indirect-fire HE capability to 10km range, and the GLATGM permits heavy armour to be defeated at ranges in excess of 5 km. The main gun is employed using a high performance, digital, fully-stabilised, day/night weapon control system. Turret weight is kept low through the use of a bustle-mounted autoloader, which permits a two-person crew.
The CT-CV turret is fully stabilized with effectively hitting moving targets while on the move. The turret is also equipped with latest generation day-night observation system and multi target designation process (Hunter-Killer capability). The CT-CV provides also a crew protection up to Level 4 (STANAG 4569) with add-on armour and protection against NBC contamination.
