Krauss-Maffei Wegmann has launched the FLW500, which is the latest entry to its FLW family of remote weapon stations (RWS) at Eurosatory 2016.
The latest FLW500 has a typical weight of 500 kg above the deck but this depends on the type of weapons fitted and associated ammunition supply.
The version being shown at the exhibition is armed with the Orbital ATK Armament Systems 30 mm M230LF dual-feed low-recoil weapon that is provided with 150 rounds of ready to use ammunition.
A co-axial 7.62 mm FN-MAG machine gun (MG) is provided with 250 rounds of ready use ammunition.
The weapons are fully stabilised with the mount featuring electric traverse through 360° and elevation from -10 to 50°.
