EOS doing work in Australia...delivers first R400S Mk2 D-HD-3X remote weapon systems (RWSs)

via Janes.
Australian company Electro Optic Systems (EOS) has handed over the first two R400S Mk2 D-HD-3X remote weapon systems (RWSs) for integration onto the Rheinmetall Boxer 8×8 armoured vehicles being acquired by the Australian Army (AA) as part of Project Land 400 Phase 2 – Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle Capability.

The firm said in a 28 May statement that the two RWSs, which are being provided by company subsidiary EOS Defence Systems, were delivered on schedule to the Australian Department of Defence᾽s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) and will be used for training purposes.

A further 80 systems are planned to be supplied during the course of the project.
Full disclosure.  I'm a fanboy of this company.  Kinda wish the USMC would give them a spin and have them demonstrate their product at Quantico, Lejeune, 29 Palms or Pendleton.

What has me jazzed.

Some pretty phenomenal accuracy.

I'm all about firepower but if you can drive nails with your RWS then that's a magic all it's own.

Keep an eye on these boys.  80 planned?  I'm betting the Australian Army ends up at LEAST doubling that number before all is said and done.
