This is a land stealth ground vehicle equipped with a weapon system that can be armed with 25 or 30mm guns [depending on customer preferences], a set of additional weapons, missiles, rockets, and more. Powered by a 4×4 chassis and significantly engine power, speed, and mobility, the main features of the Cockerill iX are hidden in its name: “i” means interceptor, “X” means modular-multi-weapons system.
The idea for the development of Cockerill iX was born from the need to provide the army with a fast and mobile vehicle with rally characteristics, armed with modern and precise weapons. The Cockerill iX could prove to be a whole new class of ground combat vehicles and change the current understanding of ground reconnaissance operations.
Cockerill iX has a hybrid and thermal electric drive, which guarantees high speed on the road or off-road. Depending on the customer’s preferences, the camouflage system can be developed in different color ranges.
Cockerill iX has a modified IR signature, which makes it a stealth vehicle. There are integrated systems for data synthesis, onboard artificial intelligence, a smart helmet for the driver and passenger next to him, cameras, sensors, LWS, and various systems for detection, tracking, and reconnaissance.
The weapon system is mobile – in addition to being able to rotate in different directions while driving, it can also fit snugly into the roof of the vehicle, making it an inconspicuous vehicle. There are various modern effectors integrated into the weapon system, which must anticipate the existence of a threat.
Cockerill iX can be transported by air [airplane, helicopter, parachute], sea, and land [train, truck].
