    RAFAEL's Samson Family of modular remote controlled weapon stations support various types of small and medium caliber machine guns including 5.56/7.62/12.7 mm machine guns, 40 mm automatic grenade launchers, anti-tank missiles and observation pods. They are mounted on a large variety of vehicles with no deck penetration.

    Samson RCWS 30 remote controlled weapon station mounting medium caliber automatic cannons offers a unique combination of lethality and maximum crew survivability. Suitable for most light armored, high mobility vehicles, RCWS 30 allows under-the-deck operation from any position (gunner and/or commander) without occupying space inside the vehicle.

    The RCWS 30 fire control system includes a high-performance day/night sight, a laser range finder and a GPS-based true-north finder by azimuth (or other). A powerful on-board computer enables effective fire control and full integration into any battle management system.
    The Samson family of modular remote controlled weapon stations supports flexible internal vehicle architecture, offering users the full advantage of closed-hatch mode of operation, and providing the gunner the full protection provided by the vehicle's armored hull.


    Main Features:

    • Foldable for air transport (RCWS 30 - patent pending)
    • Stabilized for firing on the move
    • Day and night operation
    • Optical auto-tracker
    • Full solution fire control
    • Slaving to any external director
    • Operation redundancy (gunner and/or commander)
    • Hull armor protection for the gunner
    • Built-in test

    Optional enhancements:
    • Multi-purpose SPIKE guided missiles (optional)
    • Smoke grenade launchers (optional)
    • PC based embedded trainer (optional)

    This is quite similar to the Stryker isn't it Kunal? A mobile gun system for automated heavy machine gun variant? Excellent pics as always. I am surprised how you haven't reached the rank of General yet. BTW you have an amazing presence in all defence forums. Just joined Military Photos and you are already a champ there :india:

    It is similar, Stryker uses the Protector RWS produced by Thales. Originally came from Norway. It is on our VAB infantry carriers.

    Aravis MRAP has a new turret by Nexter called ARX20 RWS.

    Sure will.. I know about that place. It is highly international and professional. The reason why I enjoy pulling Paki legs on Pakistani forums is just to play around with their self-obsessed mentality. :D. It gives me a kick :lol:. I've seen discussions in MP.net. They are the high standards what I would expect on any international forum.

    Nothing about the Stryker is indigenous except the engine. It is the Swiss Piranha with Thales comm gear, Thales remote station, Thales Dragon Fire mortar system (USMC).

    A remote weapon station, also known as a remote weapon system, (RWS) is a weaponized system for light and medium caliber weapons which can be installed on ground combat vehicle or sea and air-based combat platforms. Such equipment is used on modern military vehicles, as it allows a gunner to remain in the relative protection of the vehicle.
