Acclaimed as designer and integrator of weapon systems, CMI Defence is marked out by its innovative approach to designing turrets and weapon stations on a flexible modular architecture.

The latest Cockerill Medium Calibre Weapon Systems is 2-man turret which can be armed with medium calibre cannon from 25 to 50mm calibre. The turret is able to rotate on 360° with a maximum elevation of 60° and depression of -20°. The turret is fully stabilized which allows firing on the move against static and moving targets.

At IDEX 2013, the new reconnaissance armoured vehicle CRAB is equipped with the latest generation of CMI Defence Cockerill 25mm weapon station. With this turret, CMI Defence provides the latest technologies of reconnaissance armoured vehicle with high mobility, protection and maximum fire power.

The firing control system of the Cockerill Medium Calibre Weapon Systems is equipped with 2-axis stabilised Day/night (thermal camera) gunner sighting system with laser range finder and a ballistic computer to engage ground and low speed airborne targets at 1,500 to 2,000 m.

The Cockerill Medium Calibre Weapon Systems provides a ballistic protection up to Level 5 (STANAG 4569) against 25mm APDS-T ammunitions at 500m and 155mm artillery shells with add-on armour.

     
CRAB (Combat Reconnaissance Armoured Buggy) designed by the French Company Panhard Defense is a true conceptual break in the area of light armoured vehicles. CRAB is an answer to a meaningful requirement i.e. setting up again a light armoured capability within the large array of missions. So it has been designed with this platform modularity concept.

The CRAB is characterized by an outstanding tactical mobility provided by a high weight/power ratio (37 hp/t, for the version with a CMI cupola), large suspension clearance and large-diameter wheels. It is a standing 4x4 vehicle. But another CRAB’s feature is its exotic mobility, i.e. a capability to move rearward rapidly with the support of a rear camera, to move sideward by swinging both axles to the same side (hence the CRAB nickname) and to make a U-turn within 10 metres! These performances will make a difference in a sophisticated environment. An electric engine with an AC (Alternating Current) starter will provide the vehicle with a boost function, and it will be able to move silently with its batteries – engine off.
