Spanish company Escribano Mechanicals & Engineering (EM&E) unveiled its new weapon system, Guardian L-HIT (Lightweight High Impact Turret), recently.
Based on the well-known RWS Guardian 2.0, which integrates weapons of calibres 5.56mm, 7.62mm and 12.7 mm, as well as a grenade launcher MK19, this new development integrates a 30 mm cannon, M230LF. This cannon provides a fire power that is able to shoot down targets more than 3km away. Being a modular and light station; its weight is less than 260 kg.
Especially designed to be integrated on a vast range of platforms and vehicles, the brand-new Guardian L-HIT provides excellent capabilities for short and mid-range defence. At the same time, it has an optimal accuracy when firing due to a newly designed stabilized system in two axes. The Guardian L-Hit offers solution against asymmetric threats.
This RWS can operate on different battlefields. Due to its lightness, it can be integrated on all different kinds of platforms and vehicles.
