Royal Thai Army procure Elbit Soltam SPEAR 120mm mortar launcher mounted on 4×4 truck.

The Army of Thailand, it has made progress on some military equipment procurement.

Center for weapons Center for the defense industry and military power that OIE. Neck area.
Announced the purchase of equipment, installation and Technology Transfer for project development grenade size. Propelled guns and 120mm tires topped 570.22 million baht from the Israeli company Elbit Systems Land and C4I.

Elbit own Soltam SPEAR system is a 120mm grenade launcher propelled guns mounted on 4×4 truck.
Understand that this development project grenade propelled guns wheeled 120mm of the OIE. Neck area. With Elbit Systems on the above, it seems to be a system that is mounted on 4×4 truck with the drugs. 1/4 tonnes of drugs. 50 or the drugs. 1 1/4 ton HMMWV.
In the case of heavy troop grenade launcher Infantry Regiment was likely to use. RY’s. In the tug. 120mm.
The armored car fitted with a grenade launcher 81mm BTR-3M1 air bombing and armored vehicles were stationed in 120mm BTR-3M2. Guards Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Guards.
It is a wheeled armored vehicle fitted with grenade The spot is the first to supply Thailand into a regular army.
But it is not certain that the grenade propelled guns to supply with 120mm tires from Elbit Systems Technology transfer will be provided to any unit.
However, it can be seen that in the past. The OIE. Neck area. Elbit Systems has collaborated with many such projects.The ATGM 155mm artillery wheeled being conducted.
Another part is just the news that the DTI has developed a missile with 120mm grenade fire. This is not to be used together or not.
(Recall that last year 2556 the Company established industry penetration. Has launched a grenade launcher propelled guns loaders 120mm on 1/4 ton 4×4 truck for the Marines. Navy post) (Translated by Google)

Elbit Systems SOLTAM SPEAR 120mm light vehicle-mounted Recoil Mortar System

At Eurosatory 2014, the Israeli Defense Company Elbit Systems has showcased its latest autonomous 120mm Recoil Mortar System (RMS) for lightweight 4×4 combat vehicles. The mortar system was mounted on an HUMVEE 4×4 light tactical vehicle.

The mortar system was mounted on an HUMVEE 4x4 light tactical vehicle. Elbit Systems SOLTAM SPEAR 120mm Recoil Mortar System (RMS) mounted at the rear of a 4×4 light tactical vehicle HUMVEE at Eurosatory 2014, International Defense & Security Exhibition in Paris, France.

SOLTAM SPEAR is a new patent-pending 120mm light vehicle-mounted Recoil Mortar System that provides ground forces with improved mobility, lethality and accuracy across a wide range of operational scenarios.

Elbit Systems’ SPEAR is a fully autonomous, vehicle-mounted, 120mm soft recoil mortar system for high mobility platforms SPEAR delivers effective fire support by combining the flexibility and lethality of accurate mortar fire with exceptional tactical mobility. The mortar is a derivative of the combat-proven soft recoil mortar which is muzzle loaded and turntable-mounted and is being used extensively by the US Army, NATO, the Israel. Defense Force and others.

The SOLTAM SPEAR 120mm mortar R is equipped with computerized aiming and navigation devices, enabling the mortar system to be operated autonomously and aimed without the need for external reference points. SPEAR can be integrated with a variety of battle management systems (BMS) and includes technical fire management, scheduled fire plans, a prioritization target process and an attack result forecast. The system also manages ammunition, personnel, assignments and serial number .equipment reports.

The system can operate independently with forward observers and/or deployed forces. The system can also be deployed on a standalone basis or as part of the battery/platoon configuration.

The targeting information is relayed to the fire control system (FCS) which computes the ballistic data and orders the electric drive system (EDS) to position the mortar barrel to the exact azimuth and elevation. The mortar fire control system (MFCS) receives feedback from the north finding system (NFS) and inclination gauge units (IGU).

The system generates a comprehensive tactical picture that includes both friendly and enemy forces along with additional battlefield elements, enabling .accurate threat analysis and an attack result forecast.

Elbit Systems unveiled today the Soltam SPEAR 120mm autonomous, soft recoil mortar system, designed for light wheeled platforms. The company has already tested the system on a modified HMMWV. The new design introduces a second-generation development of the combat proven CARDOM system developed by Soltam, which has been widely deployed with the US Army on Stryker wheeled APCs and Israel Defense Forces Keshet M-113 based self-propelled mortars.

The patent pending recoil system employed with this system reduces the barrel firing load (typically 120 tons) to less than 10 tons, therefore enabling a relatively light chassis to sustain the firing jolt within few seconds. As a result, the SPEAR can sustain a high rate of fire of up to 15 rounds per minute, and deliver accurate fire with a 30 meter circular error point (CEP). The mortar used is a derivative of the smooth-bore, muzzle loaded and turntable-mounted type used by the US Army, NATO and IDF.

As the Keshet autonomous mortar operational with the IDF ground forces, SPEAR is equipped with full digital computerized aiming and navigation system, enabling the mortar to be operated autonomously and aimed without the need for external reference points. (defense-update.com)
