Medium Turret Technology Demonstrator (MTTD) at Bloem Show

This year, the MTTD will be featured in the SA Armour Museum exhibition, at the Bloem Show. The workshop has commenced preparations and serviceable wheels have been fitted to the MTTD with assistance from the Friends of the Museum.

 

The MTTD was an independent project to develop and test a new Rooikat turret equipped with a 105 mm high-pressure or 120 mm low-recoil main gun. The remote turret would feature an autoloading system and various other modern technologies.

 

The loader (left side of the turret) and crew commander (right side of the turret) positions were moved into the hull giving rise to the depressions in the hull on either side of the main gun. The MTTD also features a mockup of an Active Protection System (APS) launcher on the top of the turret. The APS would have increased the survivability of the platform when facing anti-tank missiles.
