Specifications :

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

❌Increase range

❌Improve end effect

❌Improve accuracy

❌Improve tactical / strategic mobility

❌Reduce crew numbers

▪ LFP TDP will support the wider program
