India’s DRDO-associated labs will soon be taking up development work of indigenous developed 30mm Turret for Armoured personnel carriers that will be made available for manned and unmanned Armoured personnel carriers on both Tracked and Wheeled versions.
The turret system will consist of a 30mm main gun, 7.62mm coaxial gun, ATGM launcher, Gunner Main Sight, 360° Commander Panoramic Sight, Integrated Fire Control system, Smoke Grenade Launchers, Air Burst Ammunition (ABM) and Remote Controlled Weapon Station (RCWS) for 12.7mm NSVT weapon system, Laser Warning system.
Turret system will also be integrated with futuristic dual-launchers for the anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) and Loitering munitions. The turret system will also have Modular ballistic protection (STANAG 4569 Level 2, 3, 4 or 6) and Dual-axis stabilized for firing on the move and at moving targets.
India is planning to develop its own Futuristic Infantry Combat Vehicles (FICV) to replace the ageing Russian BMP-2 for which development of a next-gen 30mmTurret that can also be mounted on wheeled Armoured personnel carriers will soon be under development for which Private sector companies are likely to play a key role.
