ISRAEL. Elbit Systems Ltd. announced that, following a contract signed between the Israeli Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Defense of Montenegro, the Company won a contract worth approximately $35 million, to supply the Montenegrin Armed Forces with Remote Controlled Weapon Stations (RCWS) for the new Oshkosh Defense 4X4 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles (JLTV).

Under this contract, Elbit Systems will perform full integration of the RCWS onboard the JLTV over a three-year period and will provide logistics support for a seven-year period.

Elbit Systems' 12.7mm RCWS is lightweight, low silhouette, dual axis and stabilized, and is mounted externally onboard armored vehicles. The RCWS offers accurate firing on-the-move and is operated via handles and Smart Displays by the gunner from within the vehicle, providing protection for the vehicle's crew.
