The 40CTA: a modern gun for numerous systems
Nexter, company of KNDS, presents the T40 turret equipped with the 40mm CTA gun system. This is an Anglo-French system made by the joint venture between Nexter and BAe Systems: CTA International (CTAI). CTAI is entirely dedicated to the production of the gun and its ammunition. It is the only company that masters the cased telescoped technology which allows the 40mm CTA ammunition to be as small as any 25mm round but as powerful as the 40mm/L40 Bofors ammunition.
It makes the whole system relatively small compared to its firepower. The T40 is, therefore, easy to integrate into the vehicles whose 1:10 mock-ups are shown at DSEI: the VBCI MkII infantry combat vehicle, a special turret on the JAGUAR combat and reconnaissance vehicle, and the land RAPIDFire made for ground and air close-in protection. Both the JAGUAR and the naval RAPIDFire are already in service within the French forces.
