TARASK®
25mm NATO COMPACT MODULAR TURRET
MISSION
Designed as a modular one-man turret with
in-chassis commander’s station, the Tarask®
turret meets the growing requirements for
Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV) combining
high mobility with superior payload, high
levels of protection and firepower.
The Tarask® turret features lightweight and
compactness characteristics that preserve the
armoured vehicle’s performance especially
in terms of mobility, amphibious capabilities
and carrying capacity.
Its modular ballistic protection, low profile and the absence of highly inflammable hydraulic
system (all-electric drive) ensure enhanced battlefield survivability.
In all weather conditions, the Tarask® turret provides the dismounted combat units with effective
fire support. The Nexter 25 M 811 cannon delivers 50% more firepower than any 20mm weapon.
The Tarask® turret enables on-the-move firing and ensures self-defence against low-level
air-threats.
