General Dynamics Showcases AJAX Armoured Fighting Vehicle At DSEI 2015
AJAX Armoured Fighting Vehicle

General Dynamics has presented new AJAX Armoured Fighting Vehicle at DSEI 2015.

The new armoured fighting vehicle is the replacement for the currently deployed Alvis Scimitar recce vehicle developed some 40 years ago. Even though it is upgraded, it needs to be replaced.

The AJAX reconnaissance vehicle is fitted with a two-person turret developed by Lockheed Martin UK under contract to General Dynamics UK, the company announced today. 

This is armed with a stabilised 40mm Case Telescoped Cannon (CTC) being provided as government furnished equipment by the UK Ministry of Defense, and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun.

AJAX will also be the fleet name, but each version will get its own name – so ARES (transportation of specialist), APOLLO (battle damaged tow and repair), ATLAS (recovery), ARGUS (Royal Engineers) and ATHENA (command) will follow, the next version even in this quarter of the year.
