Jenoptik to supply turrets to Poland

10th October 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Jenoptik has received an order worth around $24.60 million to supply 126 electric turret and weapon stabilisation systems to Poland's ZM Bumar Labedy as part of a modernisation programme for the Leopard 2 tank, it was announced on 5 October.

The all-electric systems - which adjust and stablise the turret and weapon while the tank is in motion - will replace the Leopard 2's hydraulic systems. They are designed to generate less heat within the tank and reduce maintenance requirements. 

Delivery will take place between 2017 and 2020.

The order is the latest development in the Polish tank upgrade programme being undertaken by Rheinmetall under a contract received in February 2016.
