Common Remote Weapon System

Information: Not Included

The proposal is being consolidated within another project - LAV III UP Part 2 project.

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


To acquire a new and Common Remote Weapon System (RWS) to replace the in-service system on designated and new armoured vehicle fleets.


Deliverables are expected to include new CommonRWS for designated in-service and new armoured vehicles fleets, such as the upgraded Light Armoured Vehicle Engineer variant as well as vehicles to be delivered by the Armoured Combat Support Vehicle project. The common RWS will provide an improved self-defence capability for mounted crews, while reducing the training burden associated with the many different legacy systems.
