These first two units will be used for training. They will be followed by a further 80 systems over the course of the project.

The R400S-Mk2-D-HD is capable of mounting weapons in single and dual configurations from 5.56mm to 12.7mm calibre as well 40mm automatic grenade launchers, 30mm lightweight cannons and anti-tank guided missiles. The system, with a sophisticated suite of sensors, is fully stabilised and networked, and allows personnel to remotely operate the weapon whilst protected inside the vehicle.
