Designation:

LANCE RC

Info
Manufacturer: Rheinmetall Defence  
Product type: Turrets  
Name: Remote controlled weapon station  

The LANCE RC is a remote control, medium-calibre turret system on the cutting edge of modern military technology. Owing to its compact dimensions and low weight, it can be mounted on a variety of different platforms, including relatively lightweight wheeled vehicles. Moreover, the modular turret concept offers scope for growth throughout the product’s entire lifecycle. Even today, the basic version’s capabilities can be expanded in a number of ways: with a situational awareness system, for example, or an independent weapon station or additional commander’s sight for providing hunter-killer functionality. Importantly, the LANCE RC’s crew can reload without leaving the safety of the armoured fighting compartment. This feature is a direct response to experience gained during current deployed operations, as is the ability to fire the weapon in superelevation mode (60°).
