155mm Soft Recoil Howitzer Program has Commenced
(March 27, 2012)
The 155mm Soft Recoil Howitzer Program officially started late 2011 continuing the momentum and success of the Hawkeye 105mm Weapon System. Currently, Mandus Group engineers are designing a top carriage and recoil system that will be able to accept both 39 and 52 caliber tubes. Due to the lightweight and low forces associated with the soft recoil system, the 155mm howitzer is being designed to be mounted on a 5-ton truck and other vehicles of similar size and weight. There has also been concurrent design reviews focused on the bottom carriage and trail leg configurations for a towed version of the howitzer. The first phase of the design process is expected to be completed by mid June.
