Design and protection
The shelter of the FC (Fire Distribution Center) is mounted at the rear on chassis of a Mercedes-Benz G-Class (4 × 4) light vehicle. The front of the vehicle is fitted with a crew cabin for two military personnel including driver and commander. The layout of the base G-class light tactical vehicle is conventional, with the engine at the front. Driver and passenger sit immediately behind the engine and cargo compartment at the rear.
Mobility
The FDC (Fire Distribution Center) G-Class 4x4 Mercedes tactical vehicle is motorized with a OM 602 DE29LA 2.874 litre 5-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled water-cooled diesel engine developing 120 hp at 3,800 rpm. The G-class vehicle uses suspension with coil springs and telescopic shock absorbers, front and rear. Both axles are located by 1 transverse and 2 longitudinal control links. It can run at a maximum road speed of 138 km/h with a maximum cruising range of 800 km.
Combat use
The system of FDC performs data link management, sensor control, air picture production, track identification and classification, friendly protection, threat ordering, weapon allocation, weapon & engagement control and kill assessment. In addition an embedded or stand-alone Mission Support Tool (MST) is provided to accelerate the commander’s decision making process regarding deployment planning, monitoring current system status, and for in-depth analysis and debriefs. The FDC integration of tactical data links involves both the handling of relevant messages according to the standard message catalogue and the implementation of functionality in the C4I software to support the needed level of system interoperability. Such functionality undertakes the sequence of events, leading to maximized coordination between the FDC and other actors in the Battle Space.
