Russian army plans new RC turret

21st March 2017 - 09:00 GMT | by Eugene Gerden in St Petersburg


The Russian MoD is investigating whether it can introduce a new remote-controlled gun turret for its airborne forces.

Tank manufacturer Uralvagonzavod, which has designed a turret module, is negotiating with the government to supply the system for the Russian Land Forces later this year.

The new turret has a 30mm 2A42 cannon, a 6P7K 7.62mm tank machine gun and provides for storage of 300 rounds of 30mm ammunition and 1,000 rounds of 7.62mm. It is also fitted with a TV/thermal imaging sight and laser range finder. It was displayed at the IDEX exhibition in February 2017.
