Autoloader for AFVs Literature Survey

Dr. J. Roopchand

Most of the Current Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) have four men crew configuration and the ammunitions are loaded into the gun barrel manually. A rate of firing of ammunition of around 8 rounds per minute is achieved with manual loading in the favourable condition. The rate of loading will diminish during sustained firing and the crew will become fatigue due to continuous loading. Hence there is a need for automatic loading of ammunitions into the gun to improve the rate of firing during sustained operation. An autoloader is a machine aid for the replacement of the human operator that extracts the ammunition from the storage bin and loads it into the gun chamber. In this paper a survey has been made on different types of autoloader employed in the AFVs.
