3rd December 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace will deliver the Protector Remote Weapon Station (RWS) to the Swiss Army under a contract with Armasuisse announced on 3 December.

Switzerland first selected the Protector RWS in 2007, and currently operates the system on a variety of platforms, including armoured vehicles and patrol boats.

Pål Bratlie, executive vice president Protech Systems, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, said: ‘Kongsberg is very proud to continue being trusted partner with the defence forces in Switzerland.

'This new order along with the establishment of a Kongsberg Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul facility in Thun, Switzerland earlier this year further strengthens the strong relationship with Armasuisse.’
