The MT is fitted with the latest generation turret from CMI Defence: the Cockerill 3105 turret equipped with a high-pressure 105mm Cockerill gun coupled to an autoloader. The two-man turret and gun were developed in-house by CMI. The gun is compatible with all NATO 105mm ammunition but can fire higher-pressure shells, smart ammunition and missiles.
