CMI's CPWS Remote Turret

CMI CPWS Remote Turret on BTR4

CMI has developed an unmanned turret called CPWS that can be equipped with medium caliber weapons from 20mm to 30mm caliber.

The turret has got a single panoramic sight that is used for both surveillance and engagement. Sight is two axis stabilzed with TI, Day. Camera and LRF.

The remote turret has access from the vehicle thru a hatch under the turret.

The turret has an elevation range of from -10 deg to +45degrees.

Different ballistic protection levels are offered up to STANAG 4569 LvL 4 with modular armor packages.

Although they say "the turret is light weight" I was unable to find any numerical data in their brochure.

I saw 3 CPWS remote turrets on Renault VAB, Panhard Crab and a Ukranian BTR4.
