ARCT
ANTI-TANK REMOTE CONTROLLED TURRET

ARCT ANTI-TANK REMOTE CONTROLLED TURRET Overview

Mission Specific Design

The ARCT was designed specifically for the anti-tank role from the very outset and has some important integrated features that turrets with add-on missile capability are lacking. ARCT offers the best optimization for low silhouette, armour protection, ergonomics, easy conversion to tripod launch configuration and sighting system.

Modularity

ARCT can be equipped with both KORNET-E and OMTAS ATGM missiles. With the two missile systems requiring very different integration approaches, ARCT is able to meet this challenging requirement through a modular design that relies on a common base structure and modular subsystems for each missile system. Owing to its design, the ARCT is ready from the very outset for integration with different missiles, which grants the users substantial flexibility.

High Survivability and Reliability

Survivability has been one of the primary focus areas of the design and the integrated armour solution provides the best protection with the lightest weight thru the use of advanced armour materials.

The gunner, thru his control console, inside the vehicle can carry out surveillance; target detection, identification and missile lock-on and guidance functions, all the while remaining under ballistic protection. In the event of an emergency, mission batteries and smart power distribution system inside the turret enables the use of the turret’s drive system, firing functions and electro-optical systems independently of the vehicle’s battery, for an increased duration.

High Mission Performance

Capable of performing continuous 360 degrees traverse, the ARCT is armed with two anti-tank guided missiles along with a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun. By means of its digital fire control system, the turret can automatically perform all the necessary ballistic calculations for achieving the highest hit probability, with both the missiles and coaxial machine gun. The gunner’s sight system including a new generation thermal camera, day camera, laser rangefinder and missile guidance electronics ensure the highly effective use of the turret day, night and under all weather conditions. In its very first firing test, the ARCT demonstrated its ability to score direct hits on targets even at the maximum range of its missiles. The platform’s secondary armament serves to enhance the turret’s firepower, and expands its mission range. Functions such as charging, firing, electrical extraction of empty cartridges can be carried out automatically from inside the vehicle. The turret is equipped with a digital electric gun turret drive system, and a two-axis stabilization system to increase accuracy while on the move.

Easy Integration

Unlike conventional manned turrets, the ARCT lacks a basket structure and it is located above the top plate of the vehicle. This increases the vehicle’s internal useable volume, while the ARCT’s low silhouette and weight enables its integration onto different types of armoured vehicles.
