Textron Marine & Land Systems Introduces COMMANDO Select 90mm Direct Fire Armored Vehicle at AUSA 2013

 

 

28/10/2013 Textron Marine & Land Systems – 45eNord.ca

 

Textron Marine & Land Systems (TM&LS), an operating unit of Textron Systems, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, today introduced the latest vehicle in its COMMANDO(TM) four-wheeled armored vehicle line-up during the AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition (AUSA 2013) in Washington.  The new COMMANDO Select 90mm Direct Fire vehicle is being shown at Booth 825 during AUSA 2013.

 

Like the COMMANDO Select Mortar Indirect Fire vehicle introduced earlier this year, the 90mm Direct Fire vehicle meets growing international demand for significantly greater under-armor firepower integrated on a highly-mobile armored vehicle.

 

The new 90mm Direct Fire vehicle is equipped with a CMI Defence Cockerill CSE 90LP weapon system, which offers day/night combat capability for tactical options ranging from counter-insurgency to conventional combat operations. The two-person, low-profile turret is lightweight and simple to operate and maintain, and is outfitted with a Cockerill Mk3 90mm low pressure gun. More than 2,300 guns in the Mk3 family are in service on vehicles across the globe and have proven themselves to be a reliable and accurate weapon.

 

“Our new vehicles are a direct response to multiple international customers seeking additional firepower in highly-protected, mobile and sustainable armored vehicles,” explained Tom Walmsley, TM&LS senior vice president and general manager. “The 90mm Direct Fire vehicle uses our combat-proven COMMANDO Select platform and adds a trusted CMI Defence turret to deliver an effective package for a wide range of military and security applications.”

 

During the past two years more than 550 COMMANDO Select vehicles, in three variants, have been delivered for use by the Afghan National Army’s Mobile Strike Force units.

 

Overall, more than 8,000 TM&LS COMMANDO armored vehicles are in the inventories of nations including Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand and the United States. An additional 600 vehicles are in various phases of production and delivery to militaries in Canada, Colombia and Afghanistan.

 

Rigorously tested and proven in the toughest environments, TM&LS’ COMMANDO family of armored vehicles utilize a V-Hull with all systems protected under armor to deliver superior mine-blast protection while also providing unmatched on-road/off-road mobility.  These vehicles are easy to maintain and operate, with readily available parts, training and service support. TM&LS offers four lines of COMMANDO four-wheeled vehicles – COMMANDO Elite, COMMANDO Select, COMMANDO Advanced and COMMANDO Utility.
