Rheinmetall to supply CROWS III weapon components

11th October 2012 - 15:43 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall has announced that it has been selected to take part in the US Army’s Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) III programme. The company was awarded a framework agreement over five years with a total value of $100 million.

Under the CROWS III programme, the US armed forces plan to procure several thousand remote control weapon stations.

The general contractor for the programme is the Kongsberg Group of Norway, and as a strategic partner, Rheinmetall’s Electro-Optics business unit will supply weapon station components, principally daylight optics and recoil absorbing elements for the gun mount. According to the company, these will be supplied by Rheinmetall subsidiary Vingtech, which the Group acquired in 2010.
