The L118’s Light Gun Battery Power Management System (BPMS) will get an overhaul by Lincad. The company won the battery repair contract from UK Ministry of Defence. The L118 is a compact 105mm howitzer which is both helicopter portable and towable behind light vehicles at high speed over rough ground. It is fitted with an artillery pointing system, powered by the BPMS, for efficiency of operation.
“We have been providing batteries for the MOD for over 30 years and winning this contract will further enhance our standing with them,” said Peter Slade, Lincad’s Joint Managing Director. “In addition to design and manufacture, we offer our customers a through-life service for their products from cradle to grave.”
