Kongsberg will supply its Protector remote weapon stations (RWS) to equip the French Army’s Renault VAB armoured personnel carriers under a NKr140m ($21.7m) contract awarded by French Renault Truck Defence.

The Protector RWS is a remotely controlled weapon station for light and medium-calibre weapons and can be mounted on any type of platform allowing the operator to remain in the vehicle during fire operations in the battlefield.

The weapon station enables the operator to keep his sights on target, independent of ballistic solution for the ammunition in use.

The Renault VAB carrier is a 4×4 highly adaptable amphibious vehicle with an accommodation capacity of 12 and a maximum road speed of 92km/h.

The contract is part of a NKr500m ($77.5m) agreement originally signed with French Renault Truck Defence in May 2008.
