The Stingray was a private venture by Cadillac Gage (now Textron Marine & Land Systems Division of Textron, Inc.) built to provide main battle tank-class firepower to a light deployable tank. The British-produced Low Recoil Force 105mm gun is derived from the L7A3 and can fire all standard NATO 105mm ammunition, and a novel recoil system and muzzle brake reduced the recoil force of the gun by 60%. Stingray is armored to withstand 14.5mm ammunition frontally, and 7.62mm ammunition on all other surfaces. Stingray is only used by the Royal Thai Army. The Thai Stingrays were fitted with a British Marconi digital fire control system, and a 2-axis gun stabilizer is optional. The suspension of the Stingray is derived from that of the M109 self-propelled howitzer.
