Within the German R&D programmes on the application of electrical energy for all main subsystems within a battle field tank, electric drive and electric firing have already been independently demonstrated successfully. The performance of an electric drive system has been demonstrated successfully based on a MARDER 1 chassis as well as on a 8×8 wheel chassis. The performance of electric gun systems has been investigated extensively using laboratory setups. For a next step the integration of the different technologies into a mobile demonstrator with the incorporation of all electric systems is proposed. The paper gives the results of a first conceptual study. Based on a MARDER 1 chassis the different subsystems have been specified and first layouts due to the technology status were generated in detail. These subsystems are: electric drive, 2-MJ capacitive pulsed power, 35-mm repetitive firing electrothermal gun. An integration concept of the different subsystems into the chassis is described
