Elbit Systems’ UT30MK2 is a configurable unmanned turret, adding highly effective firepower to armored personnel carriers (APCs) without compromising troop safety. Based on the success of the company fully combat-proven turrets in use by numerous armed forces around the world, the UT30MK2 is the latest generation turret system developed by Elbit Systems. The modular design enables unmanned and manned turret configurations with easy conversion. Designed with a very low profile, the UT30MK2 encompasses a broad range of weapon systems, countermeasures and advanced electro-optics, all developed in-house, to deliver reliable, high performance firepower on the battlefield.
Electrical Drive Stabilized System (EDSS) including turret power drives for elevation and traverse, gunner and commander handles, the EDSS also includes gun and turret gyros for autonomous stabilization. The main turret computer, multi-functional displays, and turret sensors calculate the optimized firing data for excellent hit probability in all scenarios, including static and dynamic vehicle and target. Comprising day HD TV and thermal cameras, the sights are fully stabilized for advanced stabilization capability and feature two independent automatic target trackers (ATTs) for improved hit probability and target engagement.
The UT30MK2 armament includes the ATK MK44 ABM 30 mm gun and a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun delivering the highest first-round and burst hit probability on the market. ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missiles) are fully integrated with the Turret and Turret Fire Control System, Laser Warning System (LWS) and optional Smoke Grenade Launcher System (SGL). The turret’s modular design enables other armament alternatives to be supported and integrated. The dual-axis stabilized UT30MK2 is designed for firing on both stationary and on-the-move targets. The option of individual gunner and panoramic commander sights – each independently stabilized – enables hunterkiller capability.
The UT30MK2 can be easily converted to the manned configuration. All subsystems are identical and deliver full modularity and equivalent capabilities. This option enables the customer to tailor a manned or unmanned solution for its platform fleet. Fully overhead with no deck penetration, the UT30MK2 does not compromise the vehicle’s armor protection and preserves existing space within the vehicle. The UT30MK2 provides enhanced situational awareness under closed hatches and is easily adaptable to a wide range of new and existing vehicles. With electro-optics designed specifically for land applications and full ballistic protection.
