ARX®20 cupolas comes as a true alternate solution, compared to the 12.7-mm systems and the turrets fitted with a 25- or 30-mm gun with its compactness and low weight similar to 12.7 machine guns, 20 mm guns fire more powerful projectiles. The system can easily be installed on any types of carriers, including light all-track vehicles. ARX®20 can be used to fire as you go and is capable of engaging targets from a distance in excess of 2,000 meters. The cupola has an all weather, day/night and all-round observation capability and is also well suited for secure missions and for combat in urban areas.

     
The Nexter Narwhal naval remote weapon systems is particularly designed for use in light ships with very high manoeuvrability for monitoring and close-in combat actions but may also be suitable for heavier tonnage ships. The effectiveness of the weapon is optimised by a stabilised sight associated with a fire-control system, while improving the operator's safety.

The Nexter Narwhal naval remote weapon systems is particularly designed for use in light ships with very high manoeuvrability for monitoring and close-in combat actions but may also be suitable for heavier tonnage ships. The effectiveness of the weapon is optimised by a stabilised sight associated with a fire-control system, while improving the operator's safety.

In its basic configuration, the NARWHAL consists of a gyrostabilised mounting armed with a 20 mm cannon, a day camera and a fire-control system which is remotely-contolled from a control panel enabling system operation, target acquisition and tracking and fire opening by the operator.
     
The SH20 door mounting is built around Nexter's 20 M 621 20 mm cannon. The individual mount weighs 168 kg and the complete system (including ammunition) weighs 248 kg. The gun is provided with 240 rounds of NATO-standard 20 × 102 ammunition. The 20 M 621 has an average firing rate of 750 rds/min. The mount can be swung out from its position inside the cabin to be ready for use in less than 10 seconds. Effective range with the 20 M 621 is up to 2,000 m.Compared to the previous 19A gun mount the SH20 is more than 150 kg lighter (248 kg versus 400 kg all-up weight).
