John Cockerill Defense America presents the Cockerill® 1030, our new concept of a light, powerful, and protected multi-role turret. The Cockerill® 1030 is a lightweight (<1.5t in basic configuration with ballistic protection level 2), low profile, remotely operated modular turret fitted with a 30x173mm gun currently undergoing a second round of live-fire testing in Europe. It’s vehicle interface is a 1.5m turret ring and is able to accommodate up to 200 ready-rounds. It can be fitted with 2 digital sighting systems (commander’s panoramic and gunner’s sights), is capable of high elevation (up to 70°) and able to integrate a wide variety of add-ons (ATGM, rockets, APS, 360° close observation,…) which make it ideal for most vehicles and missions (APC, IFV, Counter-UAS, amphibious,…) which require mobility, lethality, performance and increased situational awareness.
The modularity of the Cockerill® 1030 allows it to be multi-mission with a fully configurable turret according to the customer’s needs. We can offer several different configurations, from a full option turret with level 4 ballistic protection, to an ultra-light unmanned turret without ballistic protection, to a lower cost version for a single operator.
This turret is based on the vast experience acquired from all Cockerill® products, with more than 600 units fitted with Mk44S gun delivered. The state-of-the-art electronic architecture is also common to the John Cockerill Defense CPWS Gen. 2, offering digital technology and open architecture which allows integration of multiple sights, ATGMs, and smoke grenade launchers – all while being component and vehicle manufacturer agnostic.
