General Dynamics Land Systems with Piranha 5, New Eagle and DONAR howitzer at IDEX 2011.
 
 
General Dynamics European Land Systems will present the latest member of the PIRANHA family of armoured wheeled vehicles, the PIRANHA Class 5, and the new artillery system DONAR at IDEX 2011 exhibition in Abu Dhabi from 20-24th February 2011. Also on display will be the new light tactical vehicle EAGLE with a Remote Control Weapon (RCW) station. General Dynamics European Land Systems will be located at the General Dynamics Stand No. 04-A10
     
     

The latest member of the PIRANHA family of armoured wheeled vehicles, the PIRANHA 5, will be displayed in a Desert Piranha configuration with the Kongsberg .50 cal. Remote Control Weapon Station. This advanced new vehicle will raise the benchmark in the areas of survivability, mobility and firepower, marking unprecedented progress in the development of armoured wheeled vehicles.

PIRANHA 5 provides the highest levels of survivability against conventional and asymmetric threats, while having the capacity to fill all battlefield roles such as APC, Electronic Warfare, Ambulance, Reconnaissance, Command, Mortar and even Direct Fire with turrets up to 120 mm calibre. The vehicle on display at IDEX is an example of what can be achieved with PIRANHA 5, an APC with an internal seating capacity for eleven soldiers.

     
     
The DONAR is a new generation, air-deployable, autonomous and remotely operated 155mm artillery system that addresses the growing need for precise indirect-fire capabilities that can augment or even replace close-air-support operations previously conducted by costly fixed- or rotary-wing aircraft. The total systems weight is less than 31 metric tons, allowing the transport with the future European Transport Aircraft A400M or similar aircraft with payload capacities in this class.
     
     
To meet the increasing demand in protection and payload, General Dynamics European Land Systems offers the new EAGLE vehicle. Due to its high payload capacity, it can either carry more equipment or heavier protection solutions, depending on the customer’s requirements. The vehicle will be shown with the FN light Remote Control Weapon Station, armed with a 7.62 mm MAG machine gun.
