For the modern armoured operator, the weapon system continues to offer a vital means of boosting combat effectiveness. Both during offensive and defensive operations, mounted forces must be fully  prepared to counter and ultimately defeat an increasing array of threats to both the platform, its crew and dismounted mechanised forces, the support of whom is vital.

Drawing on the operational and strategic experience of military experts, as well as the technical expertise of those at the forefront of industry and research, Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems shall explore the defining factors that contribute to enhanced lethality and fire superiority for land forces.

An examination of emerging technologies in these key areas, ranging from the latest weapon systems, smart munitions, fire control and target acquisition, shall be combined with operational case studies and key programme updates from commanders and military project leaders, to develop definitive requirements and solutions for enhancing lethality.

Benefits of Attending

  • Provide a platform for the advancement of armoured vehicles offensive capability, bringing together those at the heart of systems operation, development and integration
  • Hear the very latest technological developments from research and industry, that are enhancing combat effectiveness
  • Gain an update on strategic partners respective armoured vehicle programmes and what they are doing to enhance platform lethality
  • Deliberate key requirements for the countering of threats during contemporary and future operations
  • Explore land force interoperability for enhanced joint fires during coalition operations
