All-in-one multi-mission response
The Samson Mk I Remote Weapon Station is a dual-axis, gyro-stabilized remote-controlled weapon system (RWS) capable of mounting multiple weapons. The retractable, dual-sighted Mk I supports main and secondary armaments, including a 25mm to 30mm main gun and a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun, as well as an optional anti-tank guided missile launcher and smoke grenade launcher.
The Mk I is lighter than manned turrets and does not require penetration into the vehicle hull, saving significant interior space. The gunner and critical electronic equipment remain protected inside the vehicle under armor. Integration of ammunition chutes in special shafts provides reliable protection and uninterrupted firepower.
