Automatic Turret Gun (ATG) is a weapon system used in numerous combat platforms and vehicles such as in tanks, aircrafts, or stationary ground platforms. ATG plays a big role in both defensive and offensive scenario. It allows combat engagement while the operator of ATG (soldier) covers himself inside a protected control station. On the other hand, ATGs have significant mass and dimension, therefore susceptible to inertial disturbances that need to be compensated to enable the ATG to reach the targeted position quickly and accurately while undergoing disturbances from weapon fire or platform movement. The paper discusses various conventional control method applied in ATG, namely PID controller, RAC, and RACAFC. A number of experiments have been carried out for various range of angle both in azimuth and elevation axis of turret gun. The results show that for an ATG system working under disturbance, RACAFC exhibits greater performance than both RAC and PID, but in experiments without load, equally satisfactory results are obtained from RAC. The exception is for the PID controller, which cannot reach the entire angle given.
