The Brazilian Army’s Land Forces has accepted Elbit Systems’ first 30mm unmanned turret UT30BR, which was integrated into the IVECO 6×6 Guarani vehicle after conducting customer acceptance tests.

The army tested the UT30BR 30mm unmanned turret’s operational functions, and its firing capabilities at static and moving targets.

The unmanned turret consists of a 30mm automatic cannon, a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun, a laser warning system (LWS), commander panoramic sight and smoke grenade launchers.

The fully dual axis stabilised turret combines an automatic target tracker and is a suitable solution to asymmetric warfare challenges.

Brazilian subsidiary AEL Sistemas was awarded a framework contract for the supply of unmanned turrets to the Brazilian Army earlier this year.
