ARES Aeroespacial e Defesa, Elbit Systems’ Brazilian operation, hopes to field test its newly developed 30 mm TORC30 remote weapon station (RWS) on an Iveco VBTP-MR Guarani 6×6 amphibious armoured vehicle.


ARES is awaiting a vehicle from the Brazilian Army in order to integrate the turret and carry out initial field evaluation tests, the company told Jane’s on 20 April. Two prototypes – one experimental and another operational – were manufactured and the latter was approved for operation during factory tests, he added.


However, the Brazilian Army is not currently considering procuring the weapon station, a service official recently told Jane’s .
