SIG SAUER awarded contract for British Armed Forces for Support Weapons Enhanced Sighting Systems (SWESS) programme.
Press Release, Newington NH, 15 August 2023: SIG SAUER, Inc. is pleased to announce the award of a contract within the Support Weapons Enhanced Sighting System (SWESS) programme of the British Armed Forces to include the ROMEO8T, JULIET3, and JULIET4 from SIG SAUER Electro-Optics.
“This combination of the ROMEO and JULIET products chosen for the Support Weapons Systems Sighting Programme by SIG SAUER Electro-Optics will easily increase the effective range and accuracy at greater distances for operators in both day and night operations,” said Andy York, President, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics. “Further the SIG designed system is completely versatile and will easily compensate for bullet drop at various distances and designed to withstand the rigours of the 5.56 and 7.62 lightweight or medium machine gun platforms.”
The SIG SAUER ROMEO8T is a 1x38mm full-size red dot sight with an exceptionally large field of view, a rectangular lens, in a ruggedised housing with integral steel shroud designed. The optic is designed and tested to withstand extreme conditions and will maintain zero under the most hostile temperature differentials.
The SIG SAUER JULIET3 and the SIG SAUER JULIET4 magnifiers extend the effective range and augment the red dot experience with crystal clear optics in a ruggedised aluminium housing and a flip to side mount. Combining any SIG SAUER JULIET series magnifiers with a ROMEO Red Dot allows hits on targets, with ease, beyond 200 yards. The JULIET3 offers 3x magnification and the JULIET4 4x magnification.
