Pindad, Lundin and CMI Defence has completed X18 Tank Boat Antasena design and slid 40 knots in swamp

Tinuku ~ PT. Pindad, PT. Lundin and Cockerill Mechanical Industries (CMI) Defence has completed the design protetipe Tank Boat X-18 Antasena and ready for production in October 2017. The design catamaran and hull 0.8 meters has the ability amphibian to cross swamps, seas, rivers and coast at speed of 40 knots.

The three defense companies are Pindad, Lundin and CMI Defence has completed the final design of the X-18 tank boat Antasena to transport four crew and 20 troops using design concepts catamaran with twin keel and parallel to cleave the waves and provide stability.

Catamaran design is generally applied to super boat to slide very fast on the water surface. Shallow keel allows the X-18 Antasena maneuver in coastal waters, penetrating the mainland through ravines and if necessary can be driven up to the shoreline to send troops.

The main use fiber composite materials are 10 times stronger and 10 times lighter than steel. Lundin has experience building KRI Klewang is the first Indonesian Navy combat ships embracing the principles of radar invisibility or stealth. At some point plus ballistic plates so strong from the blow 7.62 mm projectiles.

X-18 inherited characteristic Scandinavian design in speed, capable of gliding splitting the sea level of up to 40 knots and is very useful for interception operations against the smuggler, illegal fishing and foreign ships that enter and threaten the sovereignty.

"There are some countries have boat equipped with canons, but we developed the catamaran can move up to 40 knots. It's the first," said Silmy Karim, President Director of PT. Pindad (Persero).

Catamaran double hull design and the hull 0.8 meters of water suitable for maneuvering in shallow waters. MAN diesel engine power 1,200 HP to supply power to pair waterjet MJP450 maximum speed of 74 km per hour.

Hull length 18 meters has a dome systems CMI CT-CV 105 mm which is often applied to medium tank and having looked up to 42-degree angle. The use of ammunition high explosive can reach targets at 8 kilometers from the coastline. Theoretically safe enough for the tank boat to shoot without worrying return fire.

CT-CV 105 has a ballistic computer systems and stabilization to provide solutions and corrections on the firing angle. If the cannon is not enough, Falarick GLATGM (Gun Launched Anti Tank Ground Missile) missiles is equipped with laser can as an option. Laser-based missile not having problems when it launched on water surface.

CT-CV 105 dome shape is different from the version of the ashore tank cannon. Version of the X-18 Antasena featuring very compact dome shape. The crew did not sit inside the dome, but the remote control firing from ship's cabin. Charging systems relying autoloader so not a lot of components implanted under the surface.

Aft-shaped platform ramps can be the basis for the RHIB (Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat) that can be used flexibly for a pursuit operation speed, VBSS (Visit, Board, Search, Seizure) operation against target ships at sea and perform search and rescue operations.

Pindad, Lundin and CMI Defence also took Bofors Defense to complete the OWS (Overhead Weapon System) LEMUR complement 105 mm cannon. LEMUR is OWS system that has been stabilized using a remote system via a large LCD screen with two control sticks to rotate the dome and elevation, quick to react and speed full turn of 360 degrees in just 3 seconds.

Complete sensor system using a CCD camera day sight with 10x zoom and thermal camera has a resolution of 320x240 to identify the source of heat at sea level. Laser rangefinder system is able to measure accurately to the target at distances up to 4,500 meters. Ballistic computer and a stabilization system to compensate the target at distance of 2,500 meters.

Selection of weapons is a heavy machine gun 12.7 mm or 40 mm grenade launcher MK19 Mod 0/1 up to the largest caliber weapon systems 25/30 mm cannon. Canon 30 mm on the X-18 is an adaptation of ATK M230LF canon system used on the AH-64 Apache helicopter.

LEMUR can be up to 60 degrees to release M230LF to target marine patrol aircraft or anti-ship helicopters. To counteract the threat of attack small boats (swarm attack) such as the USS Cole bombing case when it docked in Yemen, LEMUR can subdue M2HB to depression -20 degrees.

Any personnel equipped SS 2 Subsonic assault rifle designed for special missions that require silent operation capabilities. SS 2 Subsonic is a modification of SS 2 and has special bullets of 5.56 caliber or larger than the MP 7. Subsonic able to reduce noise to below 70 dB and effective up to distance of 400 meters.
