Surface Forces: Remote Weapons Stations At Sea

Archives

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.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
