Successful Engagement of Moving Ground at Air Targets at 300m+
SMART SHOOTER recently integrated and tested its SMASH HOPPER fire control system on a Plasan Re’em 4×4 armoured tactical vehicle, successfully hitting multiple moving ground and air targets at ranges in excess of 300m, the company announced on 2 September.
The company’s Light Remote-Controlled Weapon Station (LRCWS), was mounted on Plasan Re’em’s armoured Toyota HILUX. Weighing approximately 15kg, SMASH HOPPER is a modular, rapidly deployable LRCWS that provides ‘one shot, one hit’ capability, controlled by an operator from a safe distance or from inside a protected vehicle. The system is ideal for deployment on a range of lightweight manned and unmanned platforms, with a broad spectrum of applications. Offering day and night capability with automatic scanning and target detection, the station is ideal for multiple mission sets, including force protection, border security, anti-drone, remote ambush and low-profile operations in complex urban environments.
“This is another step in a series of trials for different configurations and applications of the SMASH HOPPER and, once again, we were thrilled to see how every bullet finds its target,” commented Michael Mor, SMART SHOOTER CEO.
“Integrating SMART SHOOTER’s SMASH HOPPER lightweight RCWS that provides ‘one shot, one hit’ capability on [a] Plasan Re’em modified armored 4X4 vehicle creates a tiebreaker solution that dramatically increases accuracy, lethality and survivability of small arms. Ideal for special forces, law enforcement units and border security, this integrated solution brings essential added value to its users, especially in scenarios where weight, time, and precision play an indispensable role,” added Plasan Re’em CEO, Yaakov Ben-Ari.
