Samson Dual

Manufacturer: RAFAEL Armament Development Authority Ltd.  
Product type: Turrets  
Name: Remote controlled weapon station  

The Samson Dual is a dual-axis, gyro-stabilized RWS that simultaneously mounts two weapons. Developed originally to carry a 25-30mm lightweight weapon as main armament and 7.62mm secondary weapon for short range engagements, the Samson Dual enables multiple-threat handling in high-mobility scenarios. Much more robust then equivalent systems, the Samson Dual is also strong enough to incorporate an ATGM Launcher as a force multiplier.

The Samson Dual incorporates an independent commander's sight and operation station to facilitate "hunt-kill" capabilities. It can slew continuously clockwise or counterclockwise over 360 in azimuth, at high slew rates in both azimuth and elevation, while mounting both weapons and full ammunition capacity.

With crew survivability a top priority, RAFAEL's unprecedented under-armor reloading system boosts lethality while maximizing crew protection.
