More than a year ago, Warfare Technology had an article on the new Polish ZSSW-30 Remote Turret by the Polish Company, Huta Stalowa Wola or HSW.
A new prototype of the turret was revealed during MSPO 2015 Exhibition. It seems the testing on the turret has already started.

ZSSW-30 is an unmanned / remote turret with the same ring diameter as the Oto Melara Hitfist-30 turret that is already in service in Polish Army on Rosomak 8x8s. The turret has an elevation range of -9° to +60°.

The turret is armed with a 30mm Mk44 chaingun and a coaxial UKM-2000C 7.62mm machine gun.
The turret has 200 rounds of 30mm ready-to-fire onboard and 400 7.62mm rounds.
I was unable to see where the links for the 30mm gun are ejected from the photos available. This lead me to thinking that the links are collected inside, however I might be wrong as well.
On the right hand side of the turret, two Spike LR missiles are mounted.Spike LR is a fire and forget type missile with a imaging infrared seeker. The range is 4.000m with a penetration capability of more than 700mm RHA.
