    Kunal sir, it is very good system we used it in defexpo 2012, very user friendly if they can make it 45-50 kg then it is perfect for army jeeps with armor protection.

    Not real RCWS, but effective.


    YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Only if its endurance can be incrased and made compact, few of these would be good for LOC and anti terror operations.
