Rheinmetall is showcasing a comprehensive array of products at the ongoing Eurosatory, and has unveiled the Lynx KF41 infantry fighting vehicle at the show.
The Lynx KF41 has two variants, which can be configured for command and control, armored reconnaissance, repair and recovery, and ambulance operations. It features a digital backbone with a generic open architecture that allows easy integration of new mission systems, while the entire survivability system is modular and upgradable to allow the vehicle to cope with the highly adaptive threats faced on the battlefield. Different survivability kits are available for peacekeeping situations, counter-insurgency operations in urban terrain, and mounted combat.
Among the other products being showcased are the Variable Tactical Aiming Laser (VTAL), and the Oerlikon Skyranger Boxer mobile air defence system, which is a wheeled armoured air defence system based on the 8×8 Boxer. The system is equipped with a 35mm revolver cannon as well as its own suite of search and target-tracking sensors.
The HX 8×8 Automated Load Handling System (ALHS) was launched on the opening day of the event. The ALHS is integrated into the high-mobility HX 8×8 truck with a protected cabin. The company is also highlighting the Mission Master Cargo Unmanned Ground Vehicle, Germany’s Future Soldier – Expanded System and the systematically enhanced Gladius 2.0. The Group’s TacNet tactical management system is also being presented, paired with mission equipment for combat vehicles.
