Precise Targeting

Gun Turret and Weapon Stabilization

In tank combat situations on uneven terrain, scoring the first hit is of critical importance in a military mission. The weapon must remain precisely on target – even while the vehicle is in motion. This means that vehicle movements and recoil from the shot must be compensated for continuously and directly. This is where VINCORION’s gun turret and weapon stabilization comes in. Our electrical stabilization systems move the often extremely heavy gun turrets in a highly dynamic manner and bring the weapons into the right position at the right time.

Our Systems Expertise

Only companies that possess deep systems expertise refined over decades can master a complex subsystem such as gun turret and weapon stabilization on armored vehicles. The vehicle, targeting system, sensors, electric motors, transmission, power electronics, and the on-board electrical system must be perfectly tailored to each other. 
VINCORION’s GTdrive® gun turret and weapon stabilization unites these qualities. Our engineers customize the stabilization for different vehicle and weapon types – from light to heavy, from medium to extra large weapons. In the process, we solve every challenge, such as the complex stabilization of weapons and sensors positioned off-center. In contrast to outdated hydraulic stabilizers with maintenance disadvantages and hazards for vehicle crews in combat, our electrical stabilization offers maximum safety for soldiers. This is because if damage is caused by a hit, our electrical system switches itself off automatically.
Key defense contractors and armed forces worldwide rely on our expertise, which is why VINCORION gun turret and weapon stabilization is used around the globe in armored land vehicles, including the Leopard 2 main battle tank and the Puma IFV. Our partnership with major software companies stretches from 1969 to the present day. The stabilization for the Puma is currently being used by the German Armed Forces. The crews of the Puma IFVs express their appreciation for the stabilized weapon system, which makes it possible to fire accurately even when moving in uneven terrain.

With our flexible and modular GTdrive® platform, we can respond quickly and individually to customer requirements. Our over 40 years of experience in the field of stabilization technology gives us the ability to find the perfect solution for our customers for the highly complex task of fine tuning the interaction between electric motors, power electronics, sensors, and controllers.
