Malaysia decides to continue its work with the ASELSAN weapon systems
ASELSAN announced that the Remotely Controlled Weapon Systems designed and manufactured by Turkey's ASELSAN will remain in service of the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).
Turkey's security system solutions provider, ASELSAN, has signed a deal with a Malaysian shipyard for the installation of its 30mm SMASH Remote Controlled Weapon System, High Accuracy Stabilized Gimbal (HASG) and Pintle Mounted 12.7mm Machine Gun on new MMEA Offshore Patrol vessels.
The device implementation will be finished by 2020.
As of today, ASELSAN services and products have been distributed worldwide to 60 countries including several EU and NATO member states.
ASELSAN Remote Controlled Weapon Systems employ 14 countries worldwide. The latest contract is an indicator that ASELSAN Remote Controlled Weapon Systems will continue to supply to Southeast Asian countries in the years ahead.
The SMASH System has a balanced turret that allows the gun's line of sight to be aimed at the goal at all times. Because of the stabilisation function, while the platform is on the move, the weapon can perform precise firings against stationary or moving targets.
