Reutech releases new Rogue LITE weapon station

The Reutech Rogue LITE weapon station.Reutech Rogue International, a division of Reutech, has release its new Rogue LITE Remote Control Weapon Station (RCWS), which is aimed at providing a cost effective yet capable system for the military vehicle market.

Reutech said development was spurred by the need for a more compact, lightweight, and maintainable weapon station for use by low cost armoured vehicles. This led to the development of the Rogue LITE, retaining the core capability of the Land Rogue 12.7mm, but offering a RCWS solution at a more affordable price without compromising on capability, the company said.

A selection of optical sights is available to meet the various user requirements.

The Rogue LITE platform can be configured for a 40mm automatic grenade launcher (AGL) or 7.62mm or 12.7mm machinegun.

Reutech said the Rogue LITE has attracted the attention of the light armoured personnel carrier market and various proposals in this regard have already been submitted.

The Rogue LITE is part of Reutech’s Rogue family, which includes the 12.7 mm Land and Sea Rogue, which is based on the popular 12.7mm Browning machine gun whereas the Super Land and Sea Rogue 20mm utilise an array of 20mm weapons such as the Denel GI2 and the Rheinmetall Air Defence KAE.

The Sea Rogue 12.7mm is fitted to the South African Navy’s four Valour class frigates while the Super Sea Rogue is mentioned as the weapon system of choice for Project Biro for both the In- and Offshore Patrol Vessels being acquired for the South African Navy.
