Airfire, surely much of the integration and weapons qualifiation work that has already been done for the Malaysian turrets could be carried over to the Badger, though of course it's on a different vehicle.


Denel Land systems have designed their own turrets,there are 4 types that need to be tested,The 30mm has been troublesome and machine gun mounts inside the turrets and to get all this to work in the turrets are taking there time due to poor,workmanship,engineering.Also allot of testing,once corrected needs to be done.


Afaik VR Laser is doing the cutting and welding work..... 'nuff said! #-o

The problem my brother found out yesterday that the inside machine gun is jamming that is mounted in the turret...when he looked the whole bracket to mount the gun is skew..and this was causing the jamming.Its this type of continuous problems delaying the delivery.
