OFB, BEL develops Remote Control Weapon Station

Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) in conjunction with Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) has developed a new Remotely Operated Weapon Station (ROWS) armed with the Russian-designed NSVT 12.7 mm heavy machine gun (HMG).

The unmanned combat station was specifically designed to carry a combat-ready NSVT HMG, which is mounted on a two-axis stabilizer. The module has been configured for upgraded Arjun Mk-IA main battle tank (MBT), and can be mounted on the Arjunarmoured recovery vehicle and the C-431 patrol ship of the Indian Coast Guard; however, it can be installed on a wide range of ground and surface carriers.
