Description: The Modular Remote Turret (MRT) is a family of remote turret systems developed in conjunction by ATK and ADVS (UK) Limited as alternatives to the legacy manned turret found on existing land combat platforms. They deliver effective platform weight reduction, load under armor capability, and increased ability to carry troops and equipment, all while upgrading lethality and increasing combat effectiveness as well as safety and flexibility. The MRT family of modular turrets was introduced at the US Army's AUSA Exhibition in October 2010.

The Light Weight Remote Turret (LWRT) is a purpose-built mount designed for ATK's Light Weight (LW) 25mm M242 Bushmaster Chain Gun.�With the LW25mm Bushmaster the vehicle's crew has the ability to engage with lethal or non-lethal munitions.�The LWRT is ideal for either a stand-alone turret or as a commander's independent weapon station. The LWRT can be fitted over existing hatches or turret interfaces.�ATK's Advanced Fire Control System (AFCS) provides an easy-to-use, man-machine interface with an operational concept that is readily accepted by the soldiers.�This weapon station also provides under armor access.
