    Falcon Turret

    State of the art upgrade to provide generation three capability within a high survivability, low volume turret capable of firing all types of NATO 120 mm smooth bore ammunition. KADDB Collaborative project Falcon is a development for a state of the art, high-survivability, reduced-silhouette turret intended for the upgrade of 105 mm and 120 mm rifled guns equipped into the existing MBTs.

    -"The “Falcon” turret mounts the RUAG Defense Systems 120 mm L50 Compact Tank Gun with" autoloader capable of firing all types of NATO standard ammunition. Also mounts the latest generation of thermal imaging surveillance and fire-control system.

    -The Falcon Turret offers firepower comparable to the latest generation of MBTs and enables standardization to NATO standard 120 mm smooth-bore ammunition.

    -The rate of fire is up to 8 rounds per minute with 3 rounds fired in the first 10 seconds.
    11 or 17 ready-rounds can be stowed in the bustle auto-loader. Additional 17 rounds can be stowed below the turret ring. The quantity being subject to the type of hull.

    -The turret can mount a stabilized self-defense weapon and sensor systems. Remote operation enables full under armor protection for the operator.

    -Digital, ballistic fire control computer with Hunter-killer capability.

    -2 axis stabilized independent primary sights.

    -360° panoramic commander's video sight.

    -3rd Generation thermal imager gunner's video sight.

    -Auto-Tracks for both commander and gunner.

    The design of the FALCON Turret places the crew below the turret ring and the reduction of turret volume leads to a reduced profile and silhouette so allowing higher protection levels to be achieved for the same mass of armor.

    Modular Multipurpose Armor Protection Packets. The turret mounts signature management system and multi spectral screening smoke. It also features the laser-warning device that is designed to give the crew advance warning of a potential enemy engagement, thereby allowing evasive action to be taken and consequently increasing the probability of survival.

    Phoenix M60 Upgrade

    The Phoenix Project addresses both immediate and emerging operational threats to the M60 Main Battle Tank using a modular and flexible approach to improve shoot-on-the-move capabilities, as well as increased lethality, mobility and survivability. These upgrades are achieved at a low technical and operational risk and at a lower cost.

    True shoot-on-the-move capability, day/night target acquisition, and improved first round hit probability are achieved with Raytheon's Integrated Fire Control System (IFCS) upgrade.

    Significant improvement in the firepower and lethality of the current M60 platform is achieved through the replacement of the M60 105-mm rifled gun with RUAG land Systems L50 120-mm smooth-bore Compact Tank Gun (CTG).

    Improvements in M60 acceleration and cross-country capability are achieved with the mobility upgrade provided by L3 Communications.

    Survivability is improved through the addition of the armor protection scheme for both the M60's turret and hull. The protection scheme can be reconfigured to changing threat conditions.

    Challenger 1 Upgrade

    JAF has Challenger.1 British MBT equipped with 120 mm rifled gun, which fires two-piece ammunition, as the suppliers of two-piece ammunition are diminishing. KADDB has initiated an effort replace their Challenger.1 gun and is viewed as a strategic project that could result in the upgrade of JAF’s required quantity of tanks. By installing a Smooth-bore Gun, that fires new NATO single piece ammunition.

    Once it was found Technically Feasible to install a smooth-bore gun, it was decided to improve the overall capabilities of the tank to be comparable with modern tanks. Therefore, the process was started of installing a faster digital Gun/Turret Drives, a new Fire Control System, an Ammunition Storage and Loading system, Display Battle Panels, a Commander’s Panoramic Sight and replacing the Electrical System to meet the Armies new equipments requirements.

    The Upgrade Program involves

    -Replacing the existing 120-mm rifled barrel with 120-mm smooth bore derived from the FALCON Program.

    -Replacing the current Fire Control System with a variant of the Integrated Fire Control System (IFCS) used on the PHOENIX M60A3 MBT

    -Replacing the Turret Drive and Stabilization System with an all-Electric Drive and Turret Stabilization System derived from the FALCON Program.

    -Upgrading Electrical components and wiring harnesses in the hull compartment area.

    -The Upgrade will improve the followings tank general capabilities,

    -Long range precision shooting while moving against both stationary and moving targets, by replacing the gun with a lower dispersion gun, installing a digital improved stabilization system and installing an improved fire control system.

    -Improvement in range detection/engagement, by installing improved sighting systems, commander’s panoramic sight and improved turret stabilization system.

    -Greater tactical agility, by increasing turret acceleration and speed capabilities.

    -Increased hit probabilities, by the combined effect of the improved and integrated components.

    AL Monjed

    Cost-effective re-use of surplus-to-requirement Main Battle Tank

    Monjed is a converted recovery vehicle based on the chassis of the decommissioned American battle tank M60A1. The goal was to inexpensively produce a modern recovery vehicle to comply with modernization requirements of armored vehicles.

    KADDB Collaborative Project Monjed is an innovative vehicle benefiting from excellent mobility and battle worthiness. It is operated by a crew of three and can carry an additional passenger

    Monjed can be used both for recovery and repair of main battle tanks in the field. The vehicle carries a range of repair equipment, including a crane, cutting equipment and air tools. It also has stowage for spare parts and can carry a spare power pack or other major assemblies.

    The hydraulically-driven main drum winch has a maximum single line pull of 400 KN ( 41 tons ) at 13 m/min.

    The ‘Yamamah’ range of aircraft are factory-built, certificated and warranted aircraft, built by SAJ from component sets supplied by Jabiru Pty Ltd of Australia. SAJ has signed an agency agreement with Jabiru Pty Ltd for the assembly and sale of the J160 and J430 aircraft in countries of the Middle East, North Africa, Gulf, and Caucasus regions. SAJ plans on having a formal launching event for the Yamamah in the Autumn 0f 2005. SAJ has secured a LS/I Acceptance Certificate for both models from the Civil Aviation Authority in South Africa so as to facilitate the acceptance from the JCAA and enable the aircraft to be used for on-line hire and flight training. With the relaxation of Private Aviation regulations forecast for the Region, the demand for Yamamah and in turn flight training will increase exponentially.
