We can get from the Belgian Army, vehicles in very good working conditions, on which we can propose as well an Overhaul or Upgrade.

Standard types of vehicles available are :

AIFV with turret mounted 25 mm cannon,

AIFV with .50 (12.7 mm) cupola weapon station

AIFV command post.

AIFV basic APC

 

We have applied to buy 56 units from the Belgian Army, without mentioning any type of variants required.

Depending on what will be sold as surplus, we can always :

          Replace one type of weapon turret by another one

          Transform the APC variants into the version that the customer wants

 

We have transformed previously APC variants into (see pictures attached) :

          Ambulance

          Anti-Tank Missile vehicle

          Recovery & Engineering support vehicle

 

With a mortar company partner, we can provide as well a Mortar variant

 

We will ensure uninterrupted spare parts support( through our own available stores and our ability to source such chassis & turret spares from other companies).

 

We will provide training for maintenance people as well as After Sales services.

This will cover all equipment on-board.

Main armament consists of an Oerlikon Contraves 25 mm KBA-B02 cannon with dual feed, which has 180 rounds of ready use ammunition and another 144 rounds in reserve. Mounted coaxial to the left of the main armament is an FN MAG-58 (US M240C) 7.62 mm machine gun with 230 rounds of ready use ammunition and a further 1,610 rounds in reserve in the hull.

Turret traverse and gun elevation are electrohydraulic, elevation is from -10 to +50 at a speed of 60/s and turret traverse is through a full 360 at 60/s. Optionally, six 76 mm electrically operated smoke grenade launchers can be mounted on the front of the hull.

The troop compartment at the rear of the hull accommodates seven seated infantry. One man sits between the commander and the turret facing the rear and the remaining six sit three each side, back-to-back. One man sits between the commander and turret facing the rear, seven are seated on bench seats at the side of the vehicle facing inwards and two are seated on jump seats facing the rear. Over the top of the troop compartment is a single-piece hatch cover that opens to the rear and contains the troop compartment ventilator. There are five firing ports, two in each side of the hull and one in the ramp at the rear. Over each of the side firing ports is an M17 day periscope and over the rear firing port an M27 day periscope. To reduce accidental damage inside the vehicle, holders support the individual weapons during firing. Spent brass catching bags prevent ejected cartridge cases from hitting adjacent men.

The infantrymen enter and leave the vehicle by a power-operated ramp which opens downwards at the rear of the hull. An emergency door is provided in the left side of the ramp.

The two armoured diesel fuel tanks at the rear of the vehicle, one either side of the ramp, are separated from the vehicle interior by armour plate.

The torsion bar-in-tube spring arrangement, which almost doubles the effective length of the torsion spring, gives a much improved ride compared with the M113A1 APC. The track, road wheels and most of the other suspension elements are identical to the M113A1's. The suspension either side consists of five dual rubber-tyred road wheels with the drive sprocket at the front and the idler at the rear. There are no track-return rollers. The first, second and last road wheel stations either side have a hydraulic shock-absorber. The track is a T130E1 steel block, rubber-bushed pin type with removable rubber pads.

Due to advances in metallurgy, the Belgian AIFVs use torsion bar only suspension, similar to the M113A2, to achieve the same results as the older AIFV bar-in-tube springs.

The Belgian vehicles are fitted with NBC systems with clean air provided individually to each person. All AIFVs are fitted with a personnel heater.

The AIFV is fully amphibious and is propelled in the water by its tracks. Before entering the water a trim vane, which is stowed flat on the glacis plate when not in use, is erected at the front of the hull.
