Designation:

RWS

Info
Manufacturer: Hanwha Techwin CO. LTD.  
Product type: Turrets  
Name: Remote controlled weapon station  

The RWS was shown integrated onto an AAV7A1 at the Seoul Aerospace and Defence Exhibition (ADEX 2013) in late October.

The RWS is fitted with the same .50 K6 MG and 40 mm K4 AGL, in addition to two banks of four electrically operated grenade launchers.

The RWS has electric traverse through 360 degrees with electric weapon elevation from -20 to +60 degrees. The weapons are stabilised in two axis with roll compensation and are laid onto the target using an advanced sighting system, which includes a day charge coupled device camera, thermal night camera and an integrated laser rangefinder with a maximum range of 5.5 km.

An automatic target tracker is fitted as standard and allows stationary and moving targets to be engaged while the basic vehicle is stationary or moving. This would be especially useful in providing suppressive fire while carrying out a beach assault.

The weapons are laid onto the target by the gunner located in the hull using a 12.1 inch flat panel display. In addition to providing more accurate firepower, especially against moving targets, the RWS also saves weight and frees up some space inside of the AAV7A1.
