Larsen & Toubro Defence is displaying a new Remote Weapon System (RWS) at the ongoing IMDEX, as it seeks to make a greater mark in the export market for defence equipment. The new SHARANG compact RWS has been developed for land based military vehicles, but is being displayed at IMDEX as the company seeks to bring about a greater awareness of its military portfolio.

“L&T developed the SHARANG weapon mount with the vision of filling in a perceived gap for a cost-effective weapon mount. It is cost effective solution for land systems,” a company official tells Daily News.

The indigenously designed and developed weapon system does not use an export restricted parts of systems.

The SHARANG RWS supports 5.56mm and 7.62 PKT machine guns and this modular system is  configurable and can be installed in different configurations on tracked and wheeled Infantry Combat Vehicles (ICV); Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs), mine resistant vehicles and 4X4s.

It can also be deployed in static installations like bunkers.

The weapon system is being showcased for the 1st time at any show and it has a major advantage in terms of size as it is 2/3rds the weight of traditional Remote Controlled Weapon Systems (RCWS), in addition to taking less space and being more compact. It weighs only 100 kg.
