The menace and mission environments of the twenty first century require a brand new class of artillery in mobility, firepower, automation and safety. Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) presentedthe wheeled howitzer RCH 155, the world’s first artillery system that may combat the battle whereas in movement on the EUROSATORY 2022 defence commerce honest. Additional important capabilities of recent artillery embrace modularity, flexibility, networking and interoperability. Krauss-Maffei Wegmann has a gorgeous and complete product portfolio which permits its prospects to assemble particular person and efficient artillery techniques into a versatile and networked system of techniques (SoS). Elevated safety for the crew by separating the crew compartment and operator stations whereas retaining the artillery capabilities of the PzH 2000.

RCH 155 (Remotely Managed Howitzer 155)

The RCH 155 (Remotely Managed Howitzer 155) is a self-propelled artillery system, which makes use of 8×8 chassis of armored personnel service and 155 mm Artillery Gun Module (AGM). This artillery system was developed by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann as a personal enterprise. It was launched in 2014 and preliminary firing trials befell throughout the identical 12 months. The Boxer has to show it may well take care of recoil forces with out stabilization, however stabilization ideas may be added if wanted to retain shoot and scoot and 360 diploma firing functionality. The Boxer-RCH 155 system may very well be used as an improve possibility for international locations with present Boxer fleets. The Boxer Artillery Gun Module (AGM), is now being known as the Distant Managed Howitzer 155 (RCH 155). When deployed this could complement, not exchange, the legacy KMW PzH 2000 155 mm/52 calibre SPH.

The Remotely Managed Howitzer 155 is predicated on the expertise of a combat-proven PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzer, which is in service with Germany and another international locations. The RCH 155 supplies the identical efficiency of the PzH 2000, however is cheaper to construct, has decreased crew and is considerably lighter. It was developed as a complement to the PzH 2000 howitzer the place heavier weaponry shouldn’t be out there, not recommendable, or too costly. The Boxer RCH 155 is operated by a crew of simply 2 males. This artillery system is armed with a 155 mm/L52 howitzer from the PzH 2000 howitzer. It has a fee of fireside of 6-8 rounds per minute. It’s also able to multiple-round simultaneous-impact firing.Along with excessive flexibility and high mobility, the BOXER drive module of the RCH 155 supplies its crew with distinctive survivability and superior safety from mines, IEDs and ballistic threats.

The synthesis of the time-tested NATO-JBMoU (Joint Ballistic Memorandum of Understanding) 155mm/L52 major gun and the unmanned AGM on BOXER chassis ends in a singular stage of artillery effectiveness with a gift vary of as much as 54 km by means of 360° azimuth and all cost and elevation ranges with out requiring help. The hearth management system and ammunition matrix can help already launched in addition to future NATO ammunition sorts (JBMOU-compatible). Due to its network-based system structure, the RCH 155 may even be attainable to implement autonomous driving and motion (remote-controlled) sooner or later. These particular traits make the RCH 155 the world’s most future-oriented barrelled artillery system.
