Aselsan showed its new medium-calibre remote-controlled weapon station (RCWS) NEFER-L on its stand at EXPODEFENSA in Bogota this week.
Offered in 25 and 30mm calibres, for the M242 and Mk44 cannon respectively, NEFER-L is designed to equip 6x6 or 8x8 wheeled vehicles and tracked vehicles, as well as fixed installations. Various options of 7.62mm coaxial machine gun are available.
Ammunition can be re-loaded from inside the vehicle, thus keeping the operator safe. An electro-optical system operates the weapon and the station has automatic tracking and a ballistic calculator as well as two-axis stabilization. The turret weighs less than 1,550kg (without armour or ammunition) and elevation range from -10 to +60°.
