Eurosatory Witness RCWS MoU with 70 mm Rockets

Eurosatory Witness RCWS MoU with 70 mm Rockets

THALES Belgium, WB Electronics and AREX signed an MoU to develop a new remote weapon system equipped with 70mm rockets. The AREX ZMU 03/05 unmanned turrets, designed and made in Poland, can adapt to any calibre weapon from 5.56 mm to 40 mm. The turret will be armed with Thales Belgium unguided and guided rockets such as Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS) and precision-guided munition for ground-to-ground use at a lower cost. Thales Belgium created the Precision Guided Munition FZ275 LGR to bridge the gap between guns, cannons, unguided rockets, and high-end missiles, fulfilling the need for an efficient C-AUS solution. 

The FZ275 LGR improves precision for light-armoured targets such as buildings, aircraft on the ground, light-armoured vehicles, radar, and command stations. The system can also be used to counter drone threats with a simple and cost-effective solution capable of targeting UAS at ranges of up to 3 km and altitudes of up to 2.5 km, using the newly developed FZ123 warhead on existing unguided rocket motors and with the majority of Thales' rocket launchers.
