ADF selects Raytheon ELCAN sight

20th June 2016 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon’s ELCAN Optical Technologies division has received a $54 million contract from Australia's Department of Defence (ADF) for the supply of its ELCAN Specter DR 1-4x dual role weapon sight, the company announced on 14 June.

The ADF's 1.5X magnified sight will be replaced by the ELCAN Specter dual field-of-view (1X and 4X) sight on the Enhanced F88 rifle under the Land 125 Phase 3C programme. The dual magnification provides both short-range rapid aiming and long-range targeting.

Cameron Perry, vice president sales, marketing and business development, Raytheon ELCAN, said: ‘Our Specter DR 1-4x sight will significantly enhance the soldiers' ability to observe and effectively engage targets. We look forward to delivering this critical capability to Australia's land forces.’

Raytheon ELCAN will start deliveries later in 2016.
