Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Autoloader mechanism offers reliable reload time
  • GT-7 cannon ballistics characteristics are competitive
  • The superb top speed of the Rooikat chassis remains
  • Equipped with features enhancing its combat capability: laser rangefinder, thermal imager, ESS and NVD
  • Crew location and good gun depression allows safer hull-down attacks

Cons:

  • Only 3 crew members
  • No secondary armament or coaxial machine gun
  • Mobility is heavily affected by uneven terrain, mud, snow, sand
  • Lacklustre power to weight ratio: struggles climbing slopes or rocks
  • GT-7 penetration is unreliable versus late Soviet MBT frontal armour as on T-72 (Family), T-80 (Family) or T-90A

History

The Rooikat Medium Turret Technology Demonstrator (MTTD) was a private venture to test the concept of a Rooikat-based 105 mm / 120 mm gun turret with an automatic loading system.

It used a regular production Rooikat hull with a completely new two-man turret. The loader/commander was positioned on the left side of the turret and the gunner was located on the right side, both in sunken positions allowing a low profile wedge shape for the turret where the crew was located. The main gun was in the centre, a 105 mm high pressure gun but it was intended also to test a 120 mm low pressure gun. The main gun was automatically loaded with ammunition from the turret bustle. An active protection system (APS) mock-up was located on the rear of the turret but was not functional. The Rooikat MTTD was only a demonstrator vehicle and never entered production.[1]
