Dynamic analysis of gun control system of main battle tank

International Journal of Heavy Vehicle Systems (IJHVS), Vol. 28, No. 2, 2021

Abstract: The primary aim of the military tank is to hit on the target efficiently in moving condition on off-track. The battle tank is an assembly of suspension system; mobility drives of fire gun such as elevation drive, azimuth drive; ballistic system and firing system etc. These aforesaid assemble systems are mainly responsible for disturbance in stability of main gun. The track used for battle tank also plays the major role in vibrations. Hence, the stability of gun is only possible when vibrations caused by mobility drives get reduced on dynamic tank gun. Mathematical model of weapon control system is modelled in SIMULINK, all kinds of weapon drives are coupled, using a collective framework of cantilever beam to develop the gun model. The passive dynamic responses of main gun can be observed by these mathematical models. The responses of SIMULINK are validated by a model developed in ADAMS.
