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 Modular Remote Turret basic variant is optimized for medium caliber chain guns developed by ATK. A variety of small, medium and heavy machine guns can be installed onto the coaxial mount. The MRT features ATK's Advanced Fire Control System (AFCS) and state-of-the-art Electro-Optical/Infra-Red (EO/IR) optics while the crew gets 360-degree situational awareness from safely inside the vehicle. The gun control unit and associated hardware are contained within the turret shell, so the only intrusion into the hull is the man-machine interface. The MRT mounting interface is designed to fit most ground combat vehicles without a platform redesign.
