Kongsberg to support French Protector RWS

5th July 2013 - 15:03 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg will provide repair, overhaul and logistics support for the French Army’s Protector Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) under a new contract signed with the French Ministry of Defence.

The Protector RWS is a remotely controlled weapon station for light and medium calibre weapons that can be mounted on any type of platform. The weapon station consists of a sophisticated weapon tower featuring electro-optical sights and allows the system to be operated from inside the vehicle with a high degree of precision to protect the gunner from being exposed.

The French Army has operated the Protector RWS on its Renault VAB 4x4 armoured personnel carriers since 2008.
