The Hawkeye 105mm Weapon System is a lightweight, modular, high-performance howitzer designed to be integrated with many types of combat transportation. Utilizing emerging technologies, the system will set the standard for light artillery in the areas of firepower, tactical mobility, strategic deployability, and command and control. The Hawkeye will be a superior alternative to existing weapon systems such as the 106mm Recoilless Rifle, 120mm Mortar, and other 105mm artillery systems due to its low-cost precision strike capability.
The Hawkeye has incorporated a groundbreaking modular design. Due to its lightweight and low recoil forces, it can be mounted to many types of military vehicles including wheeled, tracked, rail, watercraft, aircraft, and towed systems. This means that a performance-based 105mm artillery system can be deployed to the land, sea, and air in ways that were never before possible. Additionally, the Hawkeye has been designed to accommodate a full spectrum of barrel lengths if the range is a primary requirement.
