Remotely Controlled Turret System
is developing the TOUTATIS 40mm remotely-controlled turret demonstrator
designed for integration in current or future combat vehicles (EBRC and
FRES are currently considered for this design). The system utilizes the
CDI 40mm automatic, Case Telescopic Weapon System (CTWS) firing at a
maximum rate of 200 rounds per minute.
TOUTATIS uses electrical traverse and elevation, and is fully stabilized
in traverse and elevation, providing a traverse rate of 0.6 rad/sec. and
elevation of -10 +45 at the same rate. The turret weighs less than 1.5
has Level 3 protection. It is equipped with 68 automatically loaded CT
The system uses a panoramic gunner's sight with 3rd GEN thermal imager,
and an independent commander's sight, to offer 95% hit probability at a
stationary target sized 2.3x2.3 meters (+80% probability against moving
target), with a first three rounds burst. TOUTATIS is designed to
"drop-into" existing 1.20 meter diameter turret rings.
