SMART SHOOTER has integrated the SMASH Hopper Light RCWS (Remote Controlled Weapon System) on a Plasan Re’em Armoured 4×4 Technical Vehicle.
Press Release, Yagur and Maryland, 02 September 2020: SMART SHOOTER, a world-class designer, developer, and manufacturer of innovative fire control systems that significantly increase the accuracy and lethality of small arms, announces that it has successfully completed another step in testing the SMASH Hopper in different configurations. SMASH Hopper, SMART SHOOTER’s Light Remote-Controlled Weapon Station (LRCWS), was mounted on Plasan Reem’s Armoured Toyota Hilux and successfully shot and hit several moving ground and air targets from more than 300 metres.
Weighing approximately 15kg, SMASH Hopper is a modular and rapidly deployable LRCWS that provides ‘One Shot – One Hit’ capability while controlled by an operator from a safe distance or from inside a protected vehicle. Best in weight class, SMASH Hopper is ideal for deployment on various lightweight manned and unmanned vehicles & platforms, with a wide range of applications. Offering day and night capability with automatic scanning and target detection, SMASH Hopper is ideal for multiple mission scenarios including force protection, border security, anti-drone, remote ambush, as well as low profile operations at complex urban environments.
