«Badak» Armoured Fire Support Vehicle

Indonesia to buy 50 «Badak» Armoured Fire Support Vehicles with a locally built Cockerill 90P turrets.

Vice President Jusuf Kalla said the government would order 50 pieces of armored «Badak» species PT Pindad Limited.

The «Badak» ( Rhino ) is a armoured fire support vehicle 6×6 for light to medium territorial defense and tactical reconnaissance. It was developed by a Indonesian state-owned enterprise specializing in military and commercial products PT Pindad (Persero).

The Cockerill CSE 90LP is a low-weight two-person turret. Featuring the proven Cockerill 90mm low pressure gun (of which some 2,500 units have been sold) the turret provides a range of highly effective fires from HE to APFSDS-T and Canister. These fires are accurately delivered around the clock using electrically-powered gun drives and a night/day digital fire control system. The low weight of the Cockerill CSE 90LP turret permits it to be fitted to a wide range of wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles. Despite its high capability and advanced design, the system simple to use and ruggedly reliable in the field; a real soldier’s tool.
