The "CROW" station. Which stands for Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station. Supposedly to protect the soldiers by not having any soldier expose him or herself from enemy fire or shrapnel when the gun can be remote control from withing the safe armored vehicle.

There is also a smaller lighter version. Same name except in the last part where it says Lightning.

At peosoldier multmedia you can watch the video that says CROWS. Cool music for it.

The other website where the product is made has another video that just describes the system in advertisment.






They have tested them in Iraq and the soldiers who manned them say it was awesome system.

O yeah I forgot they have the systems for the Abrams tank and Bradley fighting vehicle.

Then what is that picture showing?
Seems to me they are able to put up this system that can work on the Abrams. Even the M1a2 version.

the original M1 and the M1A1 both had the capability to fire the commanders gun from within the vehicle with the hatch closed , BUT it was lost on the M1A2 due to the reconfiguration of several turret systems.

TUSK has brought back this capability ,along with some other much needed urban warfare survival equipment.

TUSK can be installed in the field without needing the unit to be recalled to the maintanance depot for downtime.

This is a great idea but will it work reliably under battlefield conditions and how accurate would the system be. Its no good having a system that saves lifes if it breaks constantly and is rubbish even when it does work
