General Dynamics Armament And Technical Products, Inc. and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. Team to Produce Remote Weapon Stations
Nov 30 12
General Dynamics Armament And Technical Products, Inc. and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. are offering the Samson line of Remote Weapons Stations (RWS) to the U.S. military. These cost-effective and field-proven remote weapons stations allow a gunner to remain protected inside the vehicle while operating a weapon remotely. The larger variant is lighter than manned turrets and does not require penetration into the vehicle hull, saving significant interior space for personnel and mission equipment. Four Samson variants will be offered, including the combat-proven MKI which is fielded in Afghanistan on Czech Army Pandurs. Samson configurations are also currently in service with the Israeli Defense Forces and other allied armed services. The RWS variants support a variety of weapons including 5.56mm to 0.50 caliber machine guns, 40mm grenade launchers and cannons up to 40mm, and can easily be integrated onto new or existing light to heavy combat vehicles.
