Innovative Modular Turret by Moog October 7, 2016

Moog Space and Defense Group has developed a new modular weapon turret for tracked and wheeled armoured fighting vehicles to improve their firepower. The Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform’s (RIwP) modular design enables the vehicle to adapt to the changing missions and allows its operators to customize the weapons package for each unique operation. Changing the weapons system typically takes 30 minutes. With an enhanced 360-degree situational awareness capability, the dual-axis stabilised base platform provides enhanced hit probability and reduce engagement times even when the vehicle is on the move. The direct fire weapons are reloadable under armor protection. The company has shown an Oshkosh Defense M-ATV fitted with RIwP armed with a 5.56 mm MG, Orbital ATK Armament Systems 30 mm M230LF low-recoil cannon, and a Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW).
