SIMA Performs Follow-up Turret Crash Test

SIMA performed a crash test as a final trial of the pre-series turret to follow on from the comprehensive tests performed by the Danish Army Combat.

The Turret was equipped with GFE material, loaded with maximum ballast and sent on a collision course at 30 km/h towards a wall of concrete.

It aimed to document that the turret, as well as equipment, would not separate from either the platform or turret itself.

The turret was twice confronted with this rough treatment, with the weapon pointed in different directions.

Even after two attempts, the turret was still able to perform its rotation and all equipment was in its designated positions.

SIMA Innovation turrets are probably among the best-tested turrets on the market.
