Rheinmetall Weapon and Munition has unveiled a new 130 mm smoothbore tank gun at Eurosatory 2016 in Paris.

Development of the gun commenced in 2015, with the company using internal funding for the project. The first technical demonstrator (TD) was completed in May 2016.

After Eurosatory the gun will commence its firing trials from a static stand at Rheinmetall’s proving ground, where its performance will be compared to the extensive simulation work already carried out on the weapon and its ammunition.

The new 130 mm smoothbore gun is an L/51 weapon and has a vertical sliding breech mechanism, increased chamber volume, and is chrome lined. However, it is not fitted with a muzzle brake.

Only scant details of the 130 mm L/51 tank gun have been released by Rheinmetall, with the company quoting an all-up weight of 3,000 kg, which includes the recoil system – the barrel alone is stated as weighing 1,400 kg.

The example shown at Eurosatory 2016 is fitted with a thermal sleeve and muzzle reference system (MRS) and these will be fitted for the upcoming firing trials. The MRS enables the weapon to be bore sighted on a more regular basis and without the crew needing to leave the platform.

In parallel with the new gun, Rheinmetall is developing a new generation armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot (APFSDS) round, which will feature a semi-combustible cartridge case, new propellant, and a new advanced long rod tungsten penetrator.

This will be followed by new 130 mm high-explosive air-bursting munition (HE ABM) that will have a number of fuze options depending on the target.

This HE ABM round will leverage from technology from the 120 mm DM11 HE ABM, currently in production for the home and export markets for use with Rheinmetall’s 120 mm L/44 and L/55 smoothbore tank guns installed on Leopard 2 main battle tanks (MBTs).

Eurosatory 2016: French Army Leclerc renovation

Published on Jun 13, 2016

In this video filmed at Eurosatory 2016, Christopher F Foss, Editor, IHS Jane’s Land Warfare Platforms discusses the renovation of the French Leclerc Main Battle Tank.


Nexter to modernise French Army’s Leclerc tanks and DCL armoured vehicles

16 March 2015

Nexter Systems has received a contract from the French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) to upgrade the national army’s Leclerc main battle tanks (MBTs) and DCL armoured recovery vehicles.

Valued at €330m, the contract represents the third order awarded by the French Defence Ministry under the Scorpion programme, which aims to modernise the French Army’s contact forces.

Under the contract, the company will deliver a total of 200 ‘Leclerc Renovated’ tanks, and 18 ‘DCL Renovated’ convenience stores tank to the French Army.

The planned upgrade is expected to enable the tanks to make the best use of its fire power and mobility within future ‘Scorpion’ joint tactical groups (GTIA).

In particular, the upgraded tanks will be able to effectively network with all components of future Scorpion GTIA groups with the development of specific interfaces for the new Contact tactical radio system and the Scorpion information system and command (SICS).

The upgrade programme will also boost the tank’s protection through the development of specific armour kits, which would enable the platform to better cope with changing threats, especially improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

In addition, the programme aims to maintain the tank’s capacity to provide French ground forces with the ‘first entry’ ability as part of an international coalition through a high degree of automation and diagnostic aid, beyond 2040.

Deliveries under the contract are scheduled to take place from 2020.

The French Army is believed to have 406 Leclrec tanks and 20 armoured recovery vehicles in service.

Built by Nexter, the Leclerc is a third-generation tank armed with a Nato standard CN120-26 120mm smooth bore gun, a coaxial 12.7mm machine gun and a roof-mounted 7.62mm machine gun, and offers protection against IEDs, mines and rocket propelled grenades.

Apart from France, the tanks are also operated by the UAE armed forces, and are being considered for acquisition by Qatar.

The new armor (green) covers the side and rear section of the tank’s hull only. It appears to be similar or even identical to the Leclerc AZUR (Action en Zone Urbaine) that has been revealed in 2006. The frontal two thirds of the new armor seem to panels made of what seems to be reactive armor (either NERA or ERA) – this covers the whole crew compartment. The rear section of the hull and the turret is only protected by slat armor.

Four wire cutters and a new RWS (light brown) are added to the tank, two of the mounted on the turret roof and two on the hull section. Furthermore the number of the GALIX smoke grenade dischargers (yellow) has been increased dramatically – from 12 to 24. Two banks of 4 smoke grenade dischargers are mounted on the turret front, while the original GALIX launchers are increased in size (from 6 to 10 smoke grenade each). Laser warner sensors (red) also have been fitted to the tank, which could in theory work together with the GALIX system like a full softkill active protection system. The Leclerc Standard F1 is also fitted with a close proximity surveillance system (orange), consisting of three camera/sensor systems mounted at the turret sides and rear.

Project 11356 Admiral Grigorovich Class Frigates

The Admiral Grigorovich class (Фрегаты проекта 11356Р/М) is the latest class of frigates ordered by the Russian Navy for the Black Sea Fleet. Six ships (two batches of three ships) have been ordered so far to be built by the “Yantar” shipyard in Kaliningrad. The frigates are based on the Talwar-class frigate, six of which were ordered by the Indian Navy and were built at the same shipyard. The Talwar class is in turn based on the Burevestnik-class frigates. The contract for the construction of three frigates is to be completed in four years. The lead ship, Admiral Grigorovich was laid down on 18 December 2010 and was expected to be in service 34 months from that date (October 2013).

The class’s original gas turbines were made by Ukrainian state-owned enterprise Zorya-Mashproekt. The company was a center of Soviet maritime gas turbine design and production. The last three vessels remain without engines as of November-December 2014.

After the Russian seizure of Crimea and incursions into Donetsk/Luhansk, Ukraine would no longer supply the engines.Instead Russian manufacturer Saturn was initially asked to supply alternative M90FP turbines. However these cannot be completed before 2019-2020, and this delay seemingly means the Navy would rather use the funds elsewhere. Thus Russia is now hoping to find an export customer for the final three vessels. The Defence Ministry is reallocating the money, initially set aside for the other three frigates, to the construction of other ships it badly needs.

Admiral Essen

On 9 December 2015 it was announced that the lead vessel was being sent from the Baltic to the Northern Fleet for the next stage of state tests. Some weapons firings are not possible in the Baltic. Lead ship was commissioned on 11 March 2016. Source wikiwand.com

The Project 11356 Admiral Grigorovich Class frigates are under construction at Yantar Shipyard, based in Kaliningrad, for the Russian Navy. The vessels utilise the same design developed for the Indian Navy’s Talwar Class frigates

Indian Navy’s Talwar Class frigates: Details

India: 6 units

Indian class – Project 17: Talwar F40 (till 18.06.2003 Dozornyy), Trishul F43 (til 25.06.2003 Udarnyy), Tabar F44 (till 19.04.2004 SKR-23), Teg F45, T6 (till до 27.04.2012 №01354), Tarkash F50 (till 9.11.2012 №01355) 27.12.2012, Trikand F51 (till 29.06.2013 №01356)


The 3,620-tonne, 124.8 m long Project 11356M class is a derivative of the Talwar-class frigates that Russia built for the Indian Navy (in turn a derivative of the earlier Project 1135 Krivak-class frigate).  According to the Russian Navy the class is armed with Kalibr-NK (SS-N-30A) cruise missiles, the 3S90M ‘Shtil-1’ (SA-N-7C) air defence system (a derivative of the land-based Buk system), an A-190 100 mm naval gun, an RBU-6000 anti-submarine mortar, and two 30 mm AK-630 close-in weapon systems. Data janes.com

The Admiral Grigorovich Class frigates can be deployed in anti-surface warfare (AsuW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-air warfare (AAW) missions, and are capable of conducting missions as a single vessel as well as a part of task force.

The Russian Ministry of Defence signed two contracts with Yantar Shipyard between 2010 and 2011 for the construction of six Project 11356 frigates. The keel of the first ship in series, Admiral Grigorovich, was laid down in December 2010 and the vessel was floated out of dry-dock in March 2014.

3M-54E Klub-N anti-ship missiles

3M54 antiship missile, a supersonic long variant, with a 220 kilometer (135 mile) range. It can be launched from a torpedo tube, a vertical launch silo, or an angled launcher. It cruises towards its target area at an altitude of about 15 meters (50 feet). At a range of about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the estimated target location, the missile pops up and turns on its active radar seeker to get a target fix.

At a range of about 20 kilometers (12.5 miles), the missile releases its terminal attack “upper stage”, which proceeds to the target at Mach 2.9 at an altitude of about 5 meters (15 feet) and hits the target using a 200 kilogram (440 pound) SAP warhead. The missile is capable of maneuvering to confound adversary defenses. The export variant is designated “3M54E”. Source: craymond.no-ip.info

2 × AK-630M 30mm

Admiral Grigorovich

Design of the AK-630 (A-213) gun system started in 1963.  The first prototype was made in 1964 and trials were conducted until 1966.  The trials of the complete system with radar and controls went on until 1976 when the system was accepted for service.  Production started in 1969 in Tula, with a modified AK-630M (A-213M) system accepted into service in 1979.  These systems are the main close-in defense systems on modern Russian ships.

The gun itself is a 6 barrel Gatling gun designated as AO-18.  The barrels are in a single block, having exhaust-driven joint automatics.  They are belt fed with a flat magazine in the AK-630 and a drum magazine in the AK-630M.  These weapons form a part of a complete self-defense system called A-213-Vympel-A, which includes gun, radar, optical and TV control systems.  A single MP-123 Vympel system can control two 30 mm guns or one 30 mm and one 57 mm gun.  This system can engage air targets at ranges up to 4,000 m (4,400 yards) and surface targets at ranges up to 5,000 m (5,500 yards).  The TV control system can detect MTB sized ships at the distance of 75 km (40 nm) and the fighter-size air targets at 7,000 m (7,600 yards).  This system is completely automatic and does not require human supervision although it can be directed from optical control posts in case of damage or for firing on shore targets.

65E/53-65KE torpedoes

The 53-65 torpedo family are Russian made, wake-homing torpedoes designed to destroy surface ships. The 53-65 became operational in 1965, while the 53-65K and 53-65M both became operational in 1969. The 53-65KE is an exported version. China received an unknown number of 53-65KE torpedoes from Russia after purchasing 4 Kilo class submarines in the 1990s.

The Type 53 torpedo is carried by almost all Russian submarines, including the Kilo class and the Akula-class submarine.

The Type 53-65 torpedo is considered especially threatening by the United States Navy because they do not respond to usual torpedo countermeasures. Normal countermeasures are decoys that use noise to divert homing torpedoes, but the Type 53-65 uses sensors that detect the churn made by ships moving, then follows the chopped water in an S-pattern between the wakes until impact from up to 11.8 mi (19.0 km; 10.3 nmi) away. Wake homing torpedoes have caused the U.S. Navy to develop the Surface Ship Torpedo Defense (SSTD) system that employs a maneuvering Countermeasure Anti-Torpedo (CAT) that seeks and intercepts an incoming torpedo.

Fregat-M2EM air/surface search radar

The Fregat, Top Plate and Top Steer NATO codename, is a family of 3D, 360-degree/full-coverage ship-based radar systems developed for the Soviet Union Navy and designed to provide surveillance and detection of surface and airborne targets and to deliver target designation data to weapon systems. The Fregat radar system can operate effectively in intense jamming and countermeasures environments. Moreover, the radar system also provides identification friend or foe (IFF). The Fregat radar system has been provided to aircraft carrier, amphibious assault, frigates, cruisers, destroyers and special purpose class ships commissioned by the Russian Navy such as Kuznetsov, Neustrashimy, Krivak III, Kirov, Slava, Udaloy and Sovremenny.

The Fregat family of radar systems features automatic target tracking and built-in self-diagnosis system. The radar system is made of line replaceable units that can be removed with ease in the event of a malfunction. The radars developed under Fregat family are tailored for a variety of ships depending on their displacement and purpose. The main differences among them are: air surveillance range, number of channels and frequency bands, and weight. Typically, Fregat radars operate in the E-band excepting the lightest Fregat MAE-4k which operates in the H-band. All variants can detect a surface ship at the line-of-sight while the maximum detection range for an airborne target with the radar cross section of a non-stealth fighter aircraft varies from 58 to 230 kilometers.

The Fregat M2EM radar system is intended for medium and large displacement ships. It is an E-band two-channel radar with a maximum instrumented range of 300 kilometers and a maximum vertical detection range of 30 km. Fregat M2EM can detect a fighter aircraft at a maximum range of 230 km and/or a missile at a maximum range of 50 km. The radar’s equipment and the antenna station weigh approximately 11.75-t (9.25-t and 2.5-t respectively).

Monument-E (3Ts-25E)


3Ts-25E target designation radar is designed to provide ECM-resistant secure information on long-range surface (and partly air) tactical situation using active and passive assets. The radar accomplishes the following tasks:

  • acquisition and automatic tracking of sur-face targets, determination of their coordi-nates and movement parameters;
  • air/surface target detection, classificationand location based on their electronicequipment emissions;
  • target identification by means of coupledIFF interrogators;
  • generation and transfer of target designa-tion data to ship’s automated missile/torpe-do weapons control system, and surface sit-uation data to combat information manage-ment system;
  • interaction with external data sources (e.g.task force ships, air reconnaissance/designa-tion systems, etc.) via ship’s standard andspecial communication systems integratedwith the radar as specified bythe ship designer;
  • operation in the navigation mode to ensuresafety of navigation.



The radar makes coordinated use of active and passive channels to acquire and designate targets. It boasts increased operational range thanks to employment of high-energy active channel, advanced methods of signal genera-tion and complex modulated signal process-ing, coupled with passive channel data, and requirements of covert operation, in severe ECM and sea clutter conditions.

The active channel uses a multiprocessor system to generate probing signals and radar data. It is integrated with a multi-computer secondary data processing, control and display network.

The passive channel performs hard-ware/software-based analysis and classification of incoming radar signals by comparing their parameters with those available in the data-base (up to 1,000 entries).
