Surface Forces: Remote Weapons Stations At Sea
January 21, 2009: South Africa has sold several Sea Rogue remote weapons stations for installation on UAE (United Arab Emirates) patrol boats. The Sea Rouge is a navalized version of the Rogue weapons station used on South African armored vehicles. The Sea Rogue can be armed with a 12.7mm machine-gun or a 20mm autocannon. The system uses a vidcam and a thermal imager (for night and fog operations). The weapons station is stabilized, do that accurate fire can be delivered when the vessel carrying it is moving, even in rough seas.
