The Military Industry Corporation (MIC) of Sudan (Stands 12-D30, A-002 and CP-232) is exhibiting a wide range of weapons and equipment here at IDEX 2015.

One of the most interesting items of equipment being shown is the Khalifa-1 122mm self-propelled howitzer, which is already in service with the Sudanese Army, and is making its international show debut.

Khalifa-1 consists of a modified Kamaz 43118 6x6 cross-country chassis with a fully protected four-door cab for the five-person crew.

At present the cab does not have air-conditioning. Mounted on the rear of the chassis is the complete upper part of the widely deployed Russian-designed 122mm D-30 towed howitzer. This has a manual traverse of 40° left and right, with elevation limits from -5° to +70°, albeit with some limitations over the cab.

When deployed in the firing position, stabilisers are lowered hydraulically at the rear. The steel sides also fold down under hydraulic control to provide rapid crew access to the 122mm ammunition. The latter is of the separate loading type, that is, projectile and associated charge in a conventional cartridge case, with a total of 45 projectiles and charges carried.

The maximum range depends on the projectile/charge combination, but is quoted as being 17km. The maximum rate of fire is stated to be 8 rounds/minute.

The standard 122mm D-30 is normally towed by a 6x6 truck, which also carries the crew and a quantity of ready-use 122mm ammunition. By integrating the system on a 6x6 cross-country truck chassis, it has greater mobility. This allows it to be brought into action and then removed much more quickly, making it less vulnerable to counter-battery fire.

Sudan's Military Industry Corporation (MIC) has developed and tested an automotive upgrade for the BRDM-2 4x4 amphibious scout car.
BRDM-2 is normally powered by a GAZ-41 V-8 water-cooled petrol engine developing 140 hp coupled to a manual transmission. This gives a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h, an operating range of up to 750 km, and a power-to-weight ratio of 20 hp/tonne.
However, MIC has replaced the petrol engine with a more fuel-efficient Isuzu 6HH-1 6-cylinder diesel developing 210 hp that gives a road speed of up to 120 km/h, and a power-to-weight ratio of 30 hp/tonne.
The MIC quotes a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 7 tonnes, which is the same as that of the original BRDM-2 that was fielded more than 50 years ago as the replacement for the BRDM-1.
The standard production BRDM-2 4x4 has a set of two belly wheels between the front and rear wheels which are lowered to allow the vehicle to cross trenches without the need of any special equipment. On the upgraded example seen by Jane's these have been removed to save weight and space.
The standard BRDM-2 is fully amphibious being propelled through the water - by a single water jet mounted at the rear of the hull - at a maximum speed of 10 km/h. The trim vane is normally stowed under the nose of the vehicle and raised prior to amphibious operations. However, on the upgraded car this trim vane has been removed as Sudan may not have an amphibious requirement.
The one-person manually operated turret is retained and is armed with an unstabilised 14.5 mm KPVT machine gun (MG) and 7.62 mm PKT co-axial MG.
