weapon stations are the state of the art in protected firepower for vehicles
or stationary positions. All RAFAELís weapon stations are of the Overhead
design. The gunner is located under the vehicle deck and the weapon station
is mounted on the deck. The gunner can perform all the firing tasks from
under the vehicle deck. The results of this design are light weapon stations
and a well-protected gunner. RAFAELís family of weapon stations includes
systems for machine guns of all calibers as well as for light cannons.
