The Canadian Army has awarded Aimpoint a contract to deliver an unspecified quantity of Aimpoint FCS13-RE Fire Control Systems (FCSs) and the TH-60 thermal sight systems. Deliveries are scheduled for 2023, and the system will be used as the Canadian Army’s primary FCS for their in-service SAAB Dynamics M3 84mm Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle.
The FCS13-RE is a direct view, Dynamic Universal Reflex Sight, provided with an integrated laser range finder and ballistic computer to give the gunner an point of aim corrected for range, ammunition nature, terrain slope angle, and environmental conditions. The FCS13-RE provides a high first hit probability on both stationary and moving targets at extended ranges and utilises an intuitive user control interface. The system purchased by the Canadian MoD includes the TH-60 thermal imaging sight to allow full operational capability at night.
