Rheinmetall Displays 105mm Medium Battle Tank At Indo Defence 2016

Rheinmetall is offering a 105mm medium battle tank at Indo Defence 2016, held from 2-5 November 2016 in Indonesia.

The vehicle is based on the Marder 1 chassis already fielded by the Indonesian Army. It is equipped with a modern Hitfact II turret from Oto Melara (now Leonardo).

Further, Rheinmetall is also carrying out a combat performance upgrade of the Leopard 2 A4 main battle tank on behalf of the Indonesian armed forces, the company announced today.

The modernization program includes a climate control system (2A4+ and RI), improved ballistic protection, conversion from a hydraulic to an electric turret drive, an auxiliary power unit, and installation of a reversing camera (RI). However it depends on which of the two different versions of the tank, either the Leopard 2A4+ or Leopard 2 RI.

In addition, Rheinmetall is also enhancing the 120mm smoothbore gun in the RI configuration with a programming kit that will enable it to fire Rheinmetall’s new programmable DM11 multipurpose round.

The new network-capable Rheinmetall Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk 2 is also featured ahead technology and with programmable airburst ammunition. The Group is also presenting its battle management system and X-TAR3D radar.

Visitors to Indo Defence 2016 can learn at first hand about Gladius and Argus at the Rheinmetall stand.

Further, solutions for public security, border controls and for protecting critical infrastructure such as the Integrated Surveillance System are also exhibited at Indo-Defence 2016.
