Escribano Mechanicals & Engineering (EM&E) is expanding their catalogue of Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) by announcing their newest development, the GUARDIAN Lightweight High Impact Turret (L-HIT).

Based on the well-known RWS GUARDIAN 2.0, which integrates 5.56mm, 7.62mm and 12.7 mm weapons, as well as a grenade launcher MK19, this new development integrates a 30 mm cannon, the M230LF. This cannon provides fire power that is able to shoot down targets more than 3km (1.9 miles) away. As a modular and light station it weighs less than 260 kg (573 pounds).

Designed to be integrated on a vast range of platforms and vehicles, the brand-new GUARDIAN L-HIT provides excellent capabilities for short and mid-range defence. At the same time, it has an optimal accuracy when firing due to a newly designed stabilised system in two axes. This system is linked to the latest technology on electro-optical systems from EM&E, which allows detection, recognition, and identification of targets at a higher range than its competitors.

Highly customisable because of its modular architecture, The GUARDIAN L-Hit is an excellent solution against asymmetric threats. It can operate in extreme conditions as this design makes maintenance easier and increases reliability. Due to its lightness, it can be integrated on all different kinds of platforms and vehicles.

Escribano Mechanical & Engineering manufactures and designs its products with a clear commitment to offering the most innovative and creative solutions for the defence sector.
