Denel Land Systems has expanded the day and night fighting capabilities of its LCT20 turret`s capabilities by integrating an advanced electro-optical sighting package for both the Commander and Gunner, this turret can be integrated into a wide range of armoured fighting vehicles.
Steve Matthews, the System Engineer on LCT 20 Turret says the upgraded LCT20-Neo significantly enhances the sighting system capabilities while retaining the ruggedness and operator simplicity of the combat-proven LCT20 turret system.
DLS also offers an optional external Commander machine gun mount, fitted at the Commander hatch -- that is operated with the Commander standing out of the hatch -- providing additional fire power to the Co-axial machine gun fitted to the weapon cradle.
"No other changes are made to the LCT20 turret other than those required to fit the sighting systems and extra machine gun," says Steve Matthews. "No structural changes are made that affect the system safety or its reliability and the Direct Optical Gunner's sight can be retained as a back-up sight."
The sighting system upgrade consists of the following:
COMMANDER SIGHT SYSTEM
GUNNER SIGHT SYSTEM
METHOD OF OPERATION - SIGHT SYSTEM
The sighting system is operated in the following manner:
