Leopard 1 with Cockerill 3105 Turret




At the recent showing of Eurosatory 2022 in Paris Belgian firm John Cockrill unveiled their latest project, an ex-Belgian Army Leopard 1 outfitted with the Cockerill 3105  gun system. According to a John Cockerill spokesman the company believes that since there are multiple countries still operating the veteran Leopard in service it is viable to offer a substantial upgrade package to those looking to replace it instead. John Cockerill had successfully outfitted the Leopard prototype with the 3105 turret back in March 2022 with a simple adapter ring that only required a singular cable to connect the power systems. The 3105 gun system offers a new 105mm canon with a 12 or 16 round auto-loader (12 rounds for the prototype) capable of firing the latest APFSDS, HEAT and anti-tank guided missiles. It is fully stabilized with a digital FCS offering high-hit probability for on the move fire and is equipped with 3rd generation thermal sights for the gunner and commander. Protection is provided by STANAG Level 4 armor capable of delfecting 14.5mm fire and 155mm artillery splinters. The package has been offered to upgrade the Brazilian Army's fleet of Leopard 1s and is awaiting further evaluation.
