Rheinmetall introduces unusual Natter 7.62 combat module [video]

BERLIN, ($1= 0.86 Euros) – On Tuesday, August 17, the German company Rheinmetall presented a futuristic remote-controlled combat module called Natter 7.62. Rheinmetall says the station uses special mounting technology to reduce vibration, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing Defense Express.

The station is modular, it can integrate various mounting kits for the location of weapons ranging in size from 5.56 x 45 mm to 7.62 x 51 mm, according to the company.

This module was developed primarily for trucks, taking into account the load capacity of the truck roof of 105 kg. According to Rheinmetall, the station uses “carbon-based mounting technology” that reduces vibration.

The station includes an “all-weather FlexEye sensor system installed coaxially with the armament line”, capable of simultaneously displaying multiple targets on the operator’s monitor screen during combat. The station has both manual and automatic target tracking. The Natter combat module has a “high probability of first hit, high angular accuracy and speed, a self-stabilizing platform, and a probability of scuba diving.”

“The combat unit sets standards in the field of protection class, operational capabilities and dynamic guidance on asymmetric threats through the use of innovative software modules in the latest remotely controlled combat stations from Rheinmetall,” says the developer.

BulgarianMilitary.com recalls that Rheinmetall developed Lynx KF41 – an armored combat vehicle specially developed for the Australian Land Forces and compliant with the requirements of the Australian Government.

The Lynx KF41 is just one of three infantry fighting vehicles participating in Australia’s Land 400 Phase 3 program and is worth a total of AUD 18.1 billion [$ 13.1 billion].

Lynx is gradually and aggressively breaking into international markets and shaking the market positions of many long-standing and proven players in this field. Hungary has already bought 200 machines from this brand, becoming the first country to place an order with Lynx.
