British Unmanned self-propelled guns
British Unmanned self-propelled guns.
Britain plans to replace the 105mm L118 howitzer. The concept of an unmanned self-propelled gun called the Lightweight Fires Platform (LFP) includes a cannon and on-board ammunition stowage on top of the chassis, as well as something like an automatic loader (highlighted in red).
Lightweight Fires Platform (LFP) Technical Demonstrator
■ 3 Year Pre-concept study to support the development of a replacement for the L118 Light Gun
■ Unmanned, autonomous and self propelled concepts are being considered for technology development
■ The study is investigating and evaluating multiple calibres and advanced projectile solutions to
❌Improve end effect
❌Improve tactical / strategic mobility
❌Reduce crew numbers
▪ LFP TDP will support the wider program
