155mm Towed Howitzer
G5 is a proven, reliable and accurate 155mm long-range gun with
an auxiliary power unit. The auxiliary power-unit provides hydraulic
power for easy and rapid deployment, as well as giving the gun a
self-propelled capability for tactical movement. The G5 system has
been developed for modern warfare. Intensive testing under all possible
conditions, as well as continuous feedback from military operations
to the design engineers, have resulted in a gun that is not only
immensely practical, but also extremely reliable and user-friendly.
G6 155mm Self Propelled
The G6 is a highly mobile
and accurate 155mm long-range gun. Mounted on an armoured chassis
driven by six wheels and capable of a road speed in excess of 85
km/h, the G6 is ideally suited to supporting the movement, deployment
and action of mechanised infantry and armoured divisions. No transporters
are required for strategic movement over long ranges.
T6 155mm Self Contained
Based on the design of
the well-known G6 turret, the T6 52 calibre turret, initially fitted
onto the T72 chassis, can now be fitted onto any other suitable
vehicle or platform. The new turret will be of particular interest
to customers who have a requirement for proven and reliable long-range
fire power, and who already manufacture a suitable vehicle or wish
to use a vehicle of their choice.
