Elbit Systems Land and C4I will showcase at Eurosatory 2014 event a new upgraded version of the company’s ATMOS 155 mm/52 caliber self-propelled artillery howitzer mounted onboard a Tatra T815 series high-mobility truck chassis with armoured cabin.
The improved version to be showcased at the show enables superior fire power, enhanced mobility and rapid response time. It offers ranges exceeding 4 0km with ERFB-BB ammunition and suitable propelling charge, at an extremely high firing rate of six projectiles per 60 seconds, achieved by using a unique new load assist device.
Its shoot-and-scoot capabilities are supported by an integrated electronic suite incorporating an inertial navigation system-based laying system, as well as a semi-automatic loading system that reduces the amount of crew members needed in operation. It can be easily interfaced with existing C4I systems.
The ATMOS can be mounted on any adapted high-mobility 6×6 or 8×8 truck.
