Australia's Department of Defence has selected Raytheon to supply the ELCAN Specter DR 1-4x dual role weapon sight for $54 million.
The ELCAN Specter dual field-of-view (1X and 4X) sight will replace the ADF's standard 1.5X magnified sight on the new Enhanced F88 rifle in the Land 125 Phase 3C program. The dual magnification provides both long-range targeting and short-range rapid aiming in a single package, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
"Our Specter DR 1-4x sight will enhance the soldiers' ability to observe and effectively engage targets," said Cameron Perry, vice president Sales, Marketing and Business Development at Raytheon ELCAN. "We look forward to delivering this critical capability to Australia's land forces."
As part of the contract, Raytheon ELCAN will begin deliveries later this year.
