H-5 Hornet Anti-tank Attack Helicopter

The GACO H-5 Hornet is an attack helicopter designed and manufactured by GACO for the Hundredstarian military. The H-5 Hornet concept is very close to the combat-proven AH-64 Apache but adapted to the Hundredstarian operations theater. Its weapon options include air-to-air missiles for self-defense, anti-tank missiles, unguided rockets and a 20mm cannon.

The H-5 Hornet is able to operate day/night, all-weather conditions being supported by an IR-camera, TV and laser designator mounted in the nose of the aircraft. H-5 Hornet helicopter and the local-made missile is a powerful combination such as the Apache helicopter and Hellfire missile. The H-5 Hornet is also compatible with Hellfire and Hot 3 anti-tank missiles as well as modern air-to-air missiles.

The Hundredstarian Air Force remains the sole operator of the H-5 Hornet attack helicopter to date. The H-5 can perform reconnaissance, close air support, escort, air-to-air, and air-to-surface missions. It can exchange data with other H-5 and other helicopter types as well as third-party sources achieving enhanced situational awareness, combat effectiveness, etc. Ejection seats have been provided for crew survivability and reduced radar, infrared and acoustic signatures have been provided for improved aircraft survivability.

The Hundredstar Army's (HA) MBT 626 Spearhead main battle tank highlights by its improved firepower, protection, and mobility compared to previous Hundredstarian tank models. According to a local insider, the HA fielded the MBT 626 Spearhead MBT beginning in April 2019 to units in the 1st and 2nd Division. The MBT 626 is intended for urban warfare, low-intensity conflicts, as well as conventional military operations.

The MBT 626 Spearhead is equipped with a state of art 50-caliber 125mm smoothbore cannon with autoloader which translates into a crew of three-man. The 125mm cannon is capable of firing the Stevencousin-made Sickle III laser-guided anti-tank missile and the ammunition magazine at the rear turret has room for 41 rounds. The heavily armored turret is fitted with explosive reactive armor (ERA) known as Modular Explosive Reactive Armor - Hundredstar III (MERAH III) and add-on armor modules. A mine protection belly plate was added. Areas at the rear of the hull and turret were fitted with cage armor and upgrade top attack protection. The cage armor provides protection against RPG rounds and anti-tank guided missiles. It seems that the armor uses new nano-ceramics materials and modern titanium and steel alloys. Other modifications include electric rather than hydraulic turret controls. The Sickle III missile is being manufactured by Project Irongates of Stevencousin.

In addition to the 125mm cannon, the MBT 626 Spearhead is equipped with a 12.7mm anti-aircraft machine gun and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun. The 70-ton class MBT 626 Spearhead tank is powered by a 2,100-hp liquid-cooled diesel engine based on latest technology developing a top speed of 100 kilometers per hour (kph) on-road and 80 kph cross country. Brakes and suspension were upgraded to cope with the increased weight.

The tank is fully digitalized and is fitted with a COBALT battlefield management system. Gunner and Commander use latest-generation cooled thermal imagers. It seems that these sights were jointly developed with SaltARMS of Saltbridge. Fire control system has a hunter-killer capability. This tank can fire accurately on the move. Computerized fire control system for the MBT 626 was developed by Dresslar Technology. At the time it was one of the most advanced fire control systems in the world. It gives a high first round hip probability and, accurate mobile firing. Furthermore, it has hunter-killer engagement capability, which enables to engage multiple targets rapidly. This feature was new at the time when this tank was introduced. Commander uses an independent panoramic sight to search for targets. Once the target is selected the gun is laid on the target automatically and the gunner completes all targeting and firing process. However, either the gunner or tank commander can aim and fire the main gun.

The vehicle is also fitted with a GPS navigation system. This tank is fitted with a combat-proven RobustUmbrella MkIII active protection system, which destroys incoming missiles and rockets. Protection suite also includes advanced threat identification and warning system. This MBT is also well protected against air-launched guided missiles and top-attack anti-tank weapons. Furthermore the RobustUmbrella system reportedly identifies the firing location and allows to engage anti-tank teams. Engine pack and transmission are located at the front of the hull. It can be replaced in field conditions within 30 minutes.
COBALT Battlefield Management System (COBALT-BMS) used in the main battle tanks and units of the task force increases the coordination and synchronization of all units from battalion down to single platform level. The system provides digital command capability with voice and data communications, real-time situational awareness and functions for operations planning and execution.

The main components of the COBALT-BMS for the main battle tanks are:
  • Command Control Computer
  • Command Control Software
  • Software Defined Tactical Radios
  • Vehicular Intercom System
  • Display Units

COBALT-BMS provides full integration with the tank platform electronic subsystems such as Fire Control System, Remote Weapon Station, Target Sensors and other sensors of the tank platform, enabling the automated use of sensor and platform information for command and control.

The main features of the COBALT-BMS are:
  • Real time situational awareness
  • Operation plan/order and overlays creation and dissemination
  • Military reports and messages
  • Logistics and personnel reports and functions
  • Movement planning and control
  • Decision support tools and functions
  • Modular and configurable system software
  • Open system architecture and use of common standards for interoperability

The new AIFV 2118 Centurion infantry fighting vehicle was jointly developed by GACO - Arix Arsenal and Karlinghurst Technology in Hundredstarian to replace the aging GACO-Mk III AIFVs, that is now over 30 years old. Five pre-production vehicles were delivered in 2014. This new infantry fighting vehicle successfully passed numerous trials and tests. First production AAIFV 2118 Centurion AIFVs were delivered to the Hundredstar army in 2016. About 350 of these machines will be delivered. Currently, it is the largest Hundredstar Army procurement programme. The AAIFV 2118 Centurion will gradually replace the GACO-Mk III AIFV.

The AIFV 2118 Centurion is the most protected AIFV currently available. It has a welded armor hull with add-on modular armor. It has an option of three various protection levels to suit operational needs. The weight of the vehicle varies from 29.4 to 43 tons accordingly to a protection level. The base model has a front and flank protection against 30-mm rounds, while the vehicle has an all-around protection against 14.5-mm machine gun fire. The most protected variant can be considered as a heavy AIFV. Additional armor modules can be fitted, increasing AAIFV 2118 Centurion's weight to 43 tons. It seems that the most protected variant of the AAIFV 2118 Centurion withstands 120- and 125-mm projectiles over the front arc. The vehicle also withstands mine blasts equivalent to 10 kg of TNT. The AIFV 2118 Centurion AIFV also features an advanced threat warning system. NBC protection and automatic fire suppressions systems are fitted as standard.

The vehicle is armed with a remotely operated weapon station. It includes a dual-fed GACO-made 30-mm cannon. It has an effective range of fire of 3 km. The AIFV 2118 Centurion will be armed with an ATGW launcher, however, its type is still unknown. Secondary armament consists of a 5.56-mm machine gun and a 76-mm grenade launcher for a close-range defense.

The AIFV 2118 Centurion infantry fighting vehicle has a crew of three, while it can accommodate up to eight infantrymen in the rear compartment. Passengers enter and leave the vehicle via a rear power-operated ramp. The vehicle is fitted with an air conditioning. The vehicle is powered by Radimes Mechinery RM-753H turbocharged diesel engine, developing a whooping 1 073 horsepower. It is worth mentioning that some of the latest main battle tanks haven't got that much power. This AIFV is not amphibious.

Postby Hundredstar » Wed Apr 25, 2018 2:01 am

Image
Specifications
Weight: 60 tonnes
Crew: 3 (commander, driver, RCWS operator) + 9 troops
Armor: Classified composite matrix of laminated ceramic-steel-nickel alloy + underlaid reactive armour. Sloped modular design.
Main armament: Kellogbearing Proving & Arsenal Sentinel-IV RCWS equipped with either 12.7 mm (0.50 in) M2 machine gun, or Mk 19 grenade launcher, or smaller MG.
Secondary armament:
1 × 7.62 mm (0.300 in) MG
1 × 60 mm (2.4 in) external mortar
12 smoke grenades
Engine: GACO- Radimes Machinery 960 hp turbocharged diesel engine
Power/weight: 20 hp/ton
Suspension: Helical spring
Operational range: 500 km (310 mi)
Speed: 60 km/h (40 mph)


The GACO APC-1842 Paladin Multi-purpose Armoured High-speed Tracked Chassis is designed as a base for special-purpose (military) vehicles to be used for various applications (mobile radars and EW vehicles, vehicles for air defence, command vehicles, ambulance vehicles, technical support vehicles, etc.). The diesel engine, automatic gearbox and hydrostatic steering provide the chassis with superb speed and manoeuvrability, as well as simple and easy control. Vehicle has excellent heavy-duty off-road performance and heavy road conditions. Paladin has a superb amphibious capability with the vehicle propelled by the tracks.

The Paladin is NBC proof and when necessary, can be converted for swimming, when it has a water speed of 6km/h. Properly maintained, it is a rugged and reliable vehicle with a good cross country performance. The hull of the Paladin is of all-welded aluminium armour to which another layer of appliqué armour has been added, which provides protection against 14.5 mm armour-piercing attack and 155 mm artillery projectiles bursting overhead. GACO also offers an additional armour kit that increases protection through the frontal arc against 30 mm attack. Increased protection is also available against anti-tank weapons with a HEAT warhead, as well as anti-tank mines.

The roof-hatch arrangement depends on the version of the Paladin. One version is fitted with a two-person turret armed with a stabilised 30 mm cannon with a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun. As an alternative a 25 mm M242 cannon can be installed with a twin launcher for the GACO Aviation & Missile System Sparkwind ATGW (maximum range of 3,750 m) mounted on the left side of the turret. Using a remotely operated turret results into an increased crew compartment protection thanks to eliminating the need of armoring the turret.Special landmine protection has been given to the Paladin through a double-layered floor which absorbs blast energy thus protecting the crew. The floor of Paladin includes a lower and inner floor. Crew compartment noise levels have been lowered by 90 percent compared with other modern armored personnel carriers which translates into higher crew comfort. Another enhancements provided to Paladin are network-centric warfare and hunter-killer capabilities. Hunter-killer is achieved using two sensors one for the Paladin's commander and the other for the gunner. The vehicle is provided with a sensor package including thermal imager, eye-safe laser rangefinder, GPS/INS navigation system and computer-based automatic fire control system with autonomous target selection

The GACO-GOLIATH armored personnel carrier was developed by GACO Land System (formerly build by Kellogbearing Proving & Arsenal) in association with the Hundredstarian Defense Force. The main goal was to design a platform with better protection, greater mobility, payload, and internal volume. The first prototype of the GACO-GOLIATH was built in 2011. Hundredstarian Army ordered a total of 86 GACO-GOLIATHs in various configurations. First vehicles were delivered in 2013 and production commenced in 2014.

The GACO-GOLIATH is fitted with modular ballistic protection. Armor composes of interchangeable modules of various thickness and can be tailored to suit mission requirements. Heavy armor is removed during peacetime and for transportation. However, it is restored once the vehicle arrives in the combat theater. Maximum protection level is against 30 mm armor-piercing rounds. The vehicle also has top-class mine protection. It can withstand up to 10 kg TNT blast. NBC protection and fire suppression systems are fitted as standard.

The standard Hundredstarian Army GACO Land System GACO-GOLIATHs are armed with KPA-G804 remote weapon stations, fitted with 30mm gun, 12.7 mm machine gun and 40 mm automatic grenade launcher. A wide range of weapons can be fitted depending on customer requirements. This armored personnel carrier weights between 16 and 26 t according to armor and weapon systems. The vehicle has a crew of three and provides accommodation for up to 10 fully equipped troops.

The Kellogbearing Proving & Arsenal GACO-GOLIATH is powered by the Radimes Mechinery RM-VO8 diesel engine, developing 480 or 540 horsepower, depending on the variant. The engine is mated to POLH-98 automatic transmission with 7-forward and 1-reverse speeds. The suspension is hydropneumatic. Height adjustment is proposed as an option. Two front axles are steerable. The vehicle is fitted with a central tire inflation system. The baseline variant of the Kellogbearing Proving & Arsenal GACO-GOLIATH is fully amphibious. It is propelled on water by two waterjets.

Mobility
The GACO-GOLIATH is powered by a Radimes Mechinery RM-VO8 diesel engine developing 540 horsepower. The engine is coupled to a RM-C881v fully automatic 6-gear transmission. Together with the 2 stage transfer gear (shiftable on the move) this gives the GACO-GOLIATH a total of 12 gears. The maximum road speed is reached at 105 km/h. The hull floor of the GACO-GOLIATH covers and thus protects most of the power train components and steering linkages. This protects the mentioned components from being damaged from various obstacles that may occur when the vehicle operates in heavy terrain. For decreasing the turning diameter of the 8×8 version a steering brake has been installed which retards all curve-inner wheels when the steered wheels are fully turned in and vehicle velocity is sufficiently low.

Protection
  1. Modular ballistic protection system capable of being upgraded for future ballistic protection systems (add-on armor)
  2. Mine protection (special hull design and components, double floor, mine protection crew seats)
  3. NBC protection (passive, overpressure or ventilated face masks)
  4. Spall liners reducing secondary effects of penetrating projectiles
  5. Fire detection and suppression system for the engine compartment
  6. Explosion detection and suppression system for the crew compartment

The vehicle is fitted with a modern fire control system. The SPH-1546 has automatic gun laying and navigating systems. It can stop and fire its first round in 60 seconds from traveling. It also takes 30 seconds to leave firing position after firing, making it less vulnerable to counter-battery fire.

The main benefit of GACO CroMotor SPH-1546 Republican Self-propelled howitzer is its greater firing power. This is a result of full automatic rammer loading system both for projectiles and charges. In the automatic laying mode, the barrel is automatically pointed in the direction calculated by the onboard computer. The weapon system is completely automated and enables effective fire up to the range of 41 km depending on used ammunition. Superb stability of the weapon both on wheeled and tracked chassis leads to supreme possible accurate repeatability.

A very advantageous feature of GACO CroMotor SPH-1546 is a possibility to mount nearly equal turret on either on heavy wheeled armored chassis or on main battle tank chassis. This is secured by a fully autonomous mode of work and light construction of the turret. Another advantage of the GACO CroMotor SPH-1546 is its self-sufficiency in the battlefield. The onboard navigation system and fire control computer make GACO CroMotor SPH-1546 an autonomous and extremely flexible weapon system.
