General Dynamics Land Systems
: 07 June, 2010  (Application Story)
The US Army will be supplied with Commander’s Weapon Stations from General Dynamics Land Systems for targeting operations from within armoured vehicles
General Dynamics Land Systems has been awarded $92 million to supply high-performance Stabilized Commander's Weapon Stations (SCWS) to the US Army TACOM Lifecycle Management Command of Warren.

The weapon station provides Army and United States Marine Corps vehicle commanders with the ability to acquire and engage targets from inside the protection of an armoured vehicle. It is designed to mount on a variety of military platforms and works with a high-performance .50-cal. machine gun. The weapon station has targeting characteristics equal to those of the current M1A1 fire-control system and includes a laser range finder and thermal site.

The work will be performed by existing General Dynamics Land Systems personnel in Lima, Ohio, Anniston, Ala., and Sterling Heights. It is expected to be completed by February of 2013.

General Dynamics Land Systems plays an integral role in the US Army's core vehicle programs, including the Abrams tank (M1A2 SEP upgrade and AIM), Stryker infantry combat vehicle and Fox NBC reconnaissance vehicle, and in its modernization plan
